Comment on BitTorrent — Too logical to be legal? by ibob http://www.ideas4lease.com/blog/2005/01/10/bittorrent-too-logical-to-be-legal/#comment-11 ibob Tue, 11 Mar 2008 21:09:33 +0000 http://www.ideas4lease.com/blog/2005/01/10/bittorrent-too-logical-to-be-legal/#comment-11 Internet providers are trying to clamp down on P2P usage due the huge overheads required by the P2P applications in use by customers. Currently, the P2P programs used today rely on hundreds of(and more) data streams, to download a single file Which means many more sessions are opened for a single download than would be used by a normal user surfing the web or downloading a favourite music file. This precedent places a great strain on the bandwidth provider due to their limited switching capacity. Many large providers worldwide are now having to face the question of either increasing their expenditure in an extremely competetive environment, or place restrictions on the customers.... Apparently the ISP's of the world view P2P as parasitical to their networks.

Comment on About by ibob http://www.ideas4lease.com/blog/about/#comment-10 ibob Tue, 11 Mar 2008 20:12:00 +0000 http://www.ideas4lease.com/blog/about/#comment-10 Why is it that High Speed Internet customers must "rent" the copper line and have it "upgraded" to the required speed? The customer pays more to C&W and then have to pay the internet provider. Whereas the C&W "service" is inlusive of such a "line rental" charge.. .thereby creating a anti-comptetive environment. I have called both parties and confirmed... also called the Fair Trading Commission (still being "investigated"). Also, C&W's service in the "high speed" internet is being over sold... just ask people in high traffic areas to check their throughput and they will tell you that they are not getting the advertised bandwidth (even corporate customers). One last thing: Why is the charge to "upgrade" your line so high? As far as I know all they have to do is activate the additional pair of copper wires from the HQ. (Please correct me if I am wrong).
