Re: BT Infinity or Sky fibre?

This decision is all based on whether you use peer-to-peer. If you do use P2P then Sky is probably your best option as there is no traffic management, however the sheer speed of BT's offering might well weigh it out.

Compare each policy
BT: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10495...
Sky: http://www.sky.com/shop/terms-conditions/broadband/n...

If you do not use P2P then there's no reason to choose Sky because the product is slower, so go for BT Infinity.


I have infinity and can download P2P at circa 8 megabytes a second with the right uTorrent settings.

Have downloaded over 10tb and uploaded over 2tb since it was installed in Jan and have had no signs of throttling or upset from BT smile

This is absolute nonsense, utorrent settings do not bypass all of BT's restrictions. More likely, you only download in their 'offpeak' hours and failed to state it.

Are you talking about utorrent's Bittorrent protocol encryption setting?

There's a lot more to it than that.

Max transport disposition setting, max halfopen connections, changing port each time you reconnect, forcing outgoing encryption and disallowing incoming legacy connections, is just the beginning.

I'll do a timestamped screenshot tomorrow afternoon for you to shut you up wink
