Azureus Vuze Network Monitoring Results

Here are the the results of torrent throttling data from January 1st up to and including 13th April 2008. Resets can and do happen when using any service on the internet but significant amounts resets and collection of more of this data overtime can spread more light on throttling practices.

Throttling does not just affect those downloading pirated content but it also effects those downloading open source software and paid legit torrenting sevices.

I have Sigecom/WOW (I was on Sigecom before WOW bought them out) and a few months ago I started having a terrible experience with torrenting. When my torrents constantly go high then drop to low or no speed and my internet browsing becomes incredibly slow or fails even though my torrents are using a small amount of bandwidth available.
