If all the p2p was blocked mabey we could all get that 20Mb after all eh>joke<

I`ll keep my ktorrent and wibbly wobbly bb connection me thinks.
I`m certainly not paying more for decent newsgroup access thats for sure!

Not if my connection sorts itself out once the new modem comes anyway, although i may well consider it with the continued savings i`ll be making IF they are`nt sorted out.:)

Most problems with P2P relate to the required ports not functioning correctly.

You may also find various trackers, especially private ones, only allow certain torrent clients.

If they ban p2p, then no one would be able to use Skype and similar programs that use p2p technology ;)

I don't think you can get cable internet to a caravan...afaik VM will only install at fixed addresses.

I doubt the travelers would be too worried about having their very own VM installations......would`nt they just be using the local good folks unsecured wireless connections after all?;)

Oh Yes they do!!!!! And they are going to get worse. I have had Virgin for 3 months and it has been that bad for me, I am payin £120 to get rid of it. I have spoken to the engineers and they inform me this is about to get a lot worse.

Funny that, cos I torrent most nights and it downloads and uploads a lot while I'm doing it. If I go to bed about midnight, I can expect by the time I wake up about 8am, to have uploaded a gig or more, and downloaded more than that if I'm on a particular downloading spree.

They don't. They will be implementing application based throttling at some point, but it's not running at the moment.
