Talk Talk LLU Port throttling?


[link to this post]
 
Hi

Thinking of joining and I read that p2p is throttled but I was wondering if anyone knows if any ports are.

The main ones im intrested in are 563 or 995

At best due to where I live I wouldnt expect to get more then 2.5meg anyway

Thanks in advance.

I have tried P2P in the past and have had both great speeds and very poor speeds, my advice is if you are thinking of using P2P regularly TalkTalk is not for you..

Thanks for the reply.

When you say p2p are you talking about torrents or say limewire?

All im mainly interested in is newgroups and a low gaming ping.

I like the look of the talktalk members site its just a shame you have to be an actual customer of talktalk before you can signup and post.

That is all i ever used it for, someone who uses newsgroups will be along shortly i would imagine. wink

My gaming pings are always rock steady and low (because TT restrict the use of P2P) wink

There is no throtteling on Newsgroups. Gaming pings for me are great too. If both of those are your main requirements then i would say yes.

I would however just say that i am pretty close to the exchange and connect at 21meg. I don't know what it would be like for people on longer lines.

Thanks again for the replies.

It actually sounds like talktalk will work out just well for me.

Lucky for me my old work place have broadband with them so im taking my computer down there later to run some tests before I make a final decision.

Any other opinions or suggestion's before I commit would be appreciated.

That's pretty good.

You can have a laugh at my current speeds if you want.

Jees that's not too good. Have you tried a filtered faceplate etc. That can sometimes improve both connection and speed.
