[UK] BeUnlimited vs BT Infinity?


[link to this post]
 
I've been a Be Pro customer for two years now, but I only reach speeds of 12 mbps down (out of the 24) and 1.4 mbps up (out of 2.5). I do a lot of BitTorrenting. I'm thinking of going with BT's fibre broadband 'Infinity'. Is it worth it? Do they throttle BitTorrent? Do they harass customers that P2P?

Is Virgin's fibre broadband better in that case?
Should I just stay with BeThere?

virgin 50 Mb Internet is pretty good, I would ask in the the virgins cable forums
http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/virgin_cable.html

I think their small packages do traffic shape throttle data

MY freind who lives 13 doors down from me has 20mb cable, and I have 20mb adsl from sky (I connect at around 16mb). For large files he can download faster than I can, but for the smaller files I beat him. I also have a significantly lower ping than him

If torrents running at as close as possible to your maximum speed is what you want, then stay with Be.

Calm down...

It may be the poster was surprised to see such a fast answer, or one so short.
