That could be luck,Because if they are said to actively throttle/shape p2p traffic, then if that was the case forcing encryption and allowing legacy connections, would not prevent their system detecting the traffic type,(unless it doesn't work ) or the possibility of a case of shaping showing as enabled on their systems, but in reality it's not ,
As I have said this has worked for me perfectly and have hit speeds of over 4MB/s at any time of the day.
as with any torrent there are lots of connections something that would be difficult to hide, unless using a tunnel (vpn) virgin are said to use or have used other more intrusive methods DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) so only way of possibly avoiding that is with a secure VPN
I can remember using a mates BT adsl connection to download torrents, or try to should i say, i did not matter how u torrent was configured, during peak times it would only download at around 100kbits regardless of number of seeds, even selecting the unbuntu iso as a test ,
That still gave the same results, but as my connection wasn't subjected to this malarkey i made a note of the files he wanted borrowed his pen drive and downloaded it using my connection, torrent maxed out my thoughput,
