Hello

It seems that my broadband distributor recently has started to control what the user downloads... Why I think so is because I have a 10 Mbit connection that works perfectly if I'm using FTP and downloading other files/updates from the web. If I use for example DC+ it starts to download in a high speed then it decreases to 2-6 kb and it happens everytime. When I have tested this I know that the one I download from also has a 10 Mbit... So my question is..how can the distributor know which program that are used to download files. When u create a peer connection which information about the users are sent?

Would really be glad if anyone could explain this

Thanks /D_S

Are you on cable, DSL or other. I really doubt you have a full 10Mbit or byte connection. I bet if you tried to download any large file you would see the same results.

I have "about" 10Mb and I am having xDSL. I have made tests with logprograms that controls which speed you can download and uppload and I get 8Mb downstream and 1-2 Mb upstream. And if I for example download an update for a program from a site (about 5 Mb) it takes a few seconds.

I realy dont understand this :-(
