Not Everyone likes BitTorrent

This is one of the weirdest arguments for broadband caps I’ve read in a long time. Essentially most ISPs use the very same reasons for throttling BitTorrent users on their network.

Fair or not?

“I managed my company’s network for more than seven years and we always had excellent Internet connection until some guys from my own department discovered BitTorrent.”

“BitTorrent is a file-sharing protocol used for distributing large amounts of files. Protocol may sound hi-tech but it just means rule or standard that enables communication between computers.”

“Using tools available from the Internet to monitor my network usage, I noticed that more than 70 percent of my network resources were used by BitTorrent causing my network to suddenly crawl.”
