Re: BT traffic shaping, not just P2P


[re: StephenTodd] [link to this post]
 
does it say this below it tho?

You have unlimited broadband usage

View your broadband usage >

-> BT Infinity Option 2 <-

Is confusing as mine said the exact same thing before I recontracted.

But I guess its moot now anyway as glasnot is clean for me now not even port 6881 is throttled.

Is your upload traffic rate limited?

There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your uploads.
Is your download traffic rate limited?

There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your downloads.


The cloud services also tested clean for me also.

When did you do your order?

I started getting clean tests last night and I ordered on saturday.

I think what you seeing is normal for https, its like the ftp protocol in that you will have poor efficiency in transferring many small files, much more efficent to compress them into a single file.

A good protocol should be able to use the same https connection for multiple files.

When I back up small files to SquirrelSave I do not see this issue.
Testing using FileZilla (can't get much more standard than that) it is using several parallel threads (even when I tell it not to?!, see below), but each thread gets its ssh connection and hangs on to it for all the files it processes.
Any properly written backup solution should do something similar.

~~~
FileZilla seems to apply the parallelism option to a queue rather than a server; so a new transfer is now working single threaded.

FileZilla smallish files, single thread/connection, 5 Mbps.
FileZilla smallish files, multiple threads, 16 Mbps.
BT Cloud, smallish files, 0.7 Mbps.

there is an app for bt cloud that might work better, but I lost the download link.

I think something has gone wrong for me because it still lists "BT Infinity Option 2". The order status is complete. BitTorrent uploads are still limited to 1Mb/s and cloud upload speeds still throttled.

It does take 5 days from when your new contract date comes into effect for the p2p restrictions to be lifted.

welcome to the confusion of the BT website.

to give you hope mine still says infinity option 2 but now my p2p is unthrottled.

What is the listed activation date for your order?

also a good way I thnik to test is try to do an order for the product on the website, it should reject you stating you already on the new product. If it does give it until the activation date.

what does it say for your existing package?

did your order only change to complete today?

Mine was set to complete the same date I ordered and then the 4-5 day lag is supposedbly 'after' it goes to complete status.
