Yes that right. And that happens because most of the Indian broadband users are ignorant to what they are getting from ISPs. :(
Moreover, their custoemr care sucks........for any problem they have only one solution: "Sir, please do anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-adware scan and your problem will be solved."

I have had more pathetic incidents with CC guys!
CC is more of a "fancy" term with hardly any "value" atleast in some companies.

Wow my doubts now confirmed...
What did i tell ya guys... I suspected this...
But the thing is they affect my download only at some times...
What shall we do guys?
Is there a way to complain? In u.s this could be seen in a different angle...but in india with corrupt officials...g dont think we will ever move another step..,
Hoping for next version of torrent technology to hit...coz now with all ISP's started to block torrent , its time we make a next move...
Please dont delete this thread since because it has torrent word in it...
This is a bad activity from ISP's towards free internet...
And its against very basic rule of free internet !
Keep this thread alive...

Most Indian ISPs are like cheap overselling wehbosts. Everything is ok till you are using only a "little bit" of what is allocated to you.

I vouch for you partner......I also have been using Airtel for 2 years now and I am getting more than expected speeds, that too without any major problem. On couple of instances my modem stopped working and it was replaced as promised within 4 hrs (which is what they claim their SLA to be). Very happy with Airtel (Touch Wood) and I wish they soon launch a 1Mbps conn speed within 1500.

Yes torrent speeds are being throttled over here in chandigarh.

Everyday at 7:00 in the morning my connection goes off and it's back by 8:05... Am very much sure that this is intentionally done... Torrent speeds never go above 211kBps and bsnl customer care sucks...

look on the bright side guys.....piracy over the p2p network is shooting for the stars in india now and the ISP's give a rats ass about it. so we have a bit of advantage too!

Oh yeah rs sucks big time dude...next time try to download a big chunk of file and when its half way and something happens then you will know which one is best...i agree for small files say withing 100mb its ok...but above it torrent rocks...no denial!

And explain me why torrent contributes to major sharing part rather than your r.s...

^^whats not to get....ISP's over here know the amount of piracy that goes around but don't care at all. In other countries they have strict rules. So indian ISP's have their own advantage

Actually its difficult to control piracy in india...the underground world cant be controlled by some riaa officials or anyone...its much more complicated... If they control internet , everyone will swift to the old way of getting what they want...
I think its better we change the way internet works or change torrent working...

I seriously dont get it...what if i run a server ? Wont there be a constant upload and download? Wont that affect their network? What if tom world is changing to grid computing? When all system are interconnected and world together? Wont there be strain on this network?
I think it better we introduce something along with introduction of ip6...

I've been experiencing throttling in Airtel only sometimes, but i'm sure there is some throttling going on. With BSNL i've never experienced throttling instead i've found speeds go above 250-300kbps in upto 2mbps plans.

Actually the result shown by azureus is total number of tcp reset...which includes all the other factors causing the reset too....may be al isp are listed mainly coz of weak backbone of our networks....not necessarily throttling....this is one theory...
Any update guys?

Nope I completely disagree, and I am talking about the paid account, not the free stuff which usually people use. And you telling me to try to download a big chunk of file.....man....for 400/months I crack the ass out of RS with avg d/l of more than 25GB/week!. And there is no question of stucking halfway as flashget 9+ versions are awsome and gives you blazing speeds, without bothering of stucking anywhere in between......

torrent on the other hand sucks, coz it greatly depends on the seeds, peers and health, plus your ISP quality as well. With RS all you need to worry about is how high your isp can go, no other bottleneck.......

Simple its free...:D
