Re: BT infinity or Plusnet FTTC *DELETED*


[re: rivageeza] [link to this post]
 
I think i read a post on hear from a plusnet person who said they were exploring 10Mb upload and had not yet worked out the pricing. I also seem to remember him asking an interested party to pm him to have it turned on, so you may not have too long to wait.

edit now found later posts giving you the link.

In reply to a post by Croftie:
You sound like you know what your talking about, so fair enough.

I just left a ubuntu torrent running and the longer I left it the faster it got, it started at 3KB/s and after 3 mins it was running at 4500 KB/s (full speed). Then I tried a torrent from a private tracker, again started at 3 KB/s but took 8 mins to get up to 500 KB/s. Finally, I enabled encryption and both torrents reached full speed straigh away.


Yep, there are quite a few settings to change in uTorrent to get the best speeds.

I came up with this earlier:

(Optimal uTorrent Settings):

Options > Preferences



"Connection"

> Click "Randomize port each start", ensure all four boxes here are ticked.



"Bandwidth"

> Tick "Alternate upload rate when not downloading".

> Maximum Upload Rate should be ~ 1/2 of your actual upstream bandwidth. I.e. if you have a 1Mbit upstream you would have a theoretical maximum throughput of 128Kbyte/sec, so in here you would enter 64 (It's in KB, not Kb)

> Altername upload rate when not downloading should be ~ 2/3 of your actual upstream bandwidth, so again assuming 1Mbit upstream, you'd enter 85

> "Global Rate Limit Option" - ensure none of these three boxes are ticked

> "Number of Connections" - Global: 256. Per Torrent: 64. Upload slots: 8. Tick "Use additional if under 90%"



"BitTorrent"

> "Basic BitTorrent Features" - ensure all boxes are ticked except "Enable Bandwidth Management" and "Limit local peer bandwidth"

> "Protocol Encryption" - Outgoing: Forced. Allow incoming legacy connections: Ticked.



"Advanced"

> "bt.transp_disposition" - increase to 255 and click "Set"

> "net.max_halfopen" - ensure this is set to 100



These settings increased the throughput on my BT Infinity Option 2 broadband from ~ 700Kbyte/sec to 4.2Mbyte/sec. If your ISP employs traffic management, this will make a big difference.

BT Infinity #2 - 4.4MBps on P2P ¦ Full 40/10 Sync ¦ 81/20 Attainable ¦ Benchmarked 22ms Ping ¦ 2ms Jitter ¦ 37.3Mbit Down ¦ 9.2Mbit Up
BT / Openreach - You've finally done well. Very well indeed.

Thanks, I currently use just one of those options to get full speed at throttled times. I suppose if not using that option tweaking the others could help.

I hope once the torrent feinds get wind of your post infinity doesn't go down hill.

Either it will, or BT will dial up the traffic management for any encrypted packets it can't positively identify.

I've managed to get my upload speed uncapped by Plusnet. The regrade went through about midnight last night. The 10meg product hasn't been released yet but they are in the final stages of a release.

They just wanted a few people to test out the billing system aspect of it, hence why I got it early.

I'd expect a release before the end of the month.

What upload throughput speeds are you now seeing?

I have a fairly intermittent & [censored] connection at the moment & see around 5Mb upload from my trial (on a really good day):-

It's up and down a bit, but so far Im averaging around the 6.5meg mark. Upload sync is 7619k so maybe theres some room for improvement.

I've been using Hyperoptic's service for a couple of months now and it's fantastic (I've got the 100 meg although they can supply up to 1 gig!). None of the issues that seem to be discussed on the forum. I'm not sure if they cover your area but it's worth checking?

Better than 2Mb though smile

I used to get 1.67Mb on the 2 Mb cap.

Hi, have you turned off QoS on the modem? I did that and my upload went from 1.6 ish to 1.8.
