Further to my experience of being caught as a 'false positive' by Eclipse's throttling of P2P I find I'm left with a question that I wonder if anyone here can offer a sensible answer to.
Why throttle P2P anyway?
Now on an unlimited data package I could understand it. Fair distribution of network resources and all that. But I'm not. I'm on a 50GB per month package. Surely that monthly cap should be sufficient to ensure that a user doesn't spoil things for everyone by excessive P2P usage? Who's going to let their P2P usage run wild knowing that their whole connection's going to get throttled for the rest of the month if they do?
The system doesn't work.It has unintended negative consequences. Yet I'm struggling to see what positive benefits it actually has. Can anyone explain, or have Eclipse just not thought this one through?
