My friend just IMed that he was banned for ratio cheat from revTT. Everything he knows about bitTorrents he learned from me, beyond that he knows very little. Serisouly, his PC knowledge is minimal. To prove the point it took him an hour just to figure out how to get on IRC to talk to the staff there. He emailed me the IRC chat, its funny to me because hes clueless but I guess the staff didnt pick up on that and banned him for not linking them to a speedtest. Im still working with him right now trying to figure out the problem with his connection. I got his speedtest results and they are way too high, Im not sure why. I used to have the same service as him and my upload speed was about 120kb/s hes getting ridiculous speeds around 2.5mb/s upload on the speedtest. The only thing i can come up with is he said he downloaded and installed "speed connect internet accelerator v7.5". I got him to uninstall it but hes still getting the same elevated speeds.
Here is a link to his speedtest
I would like to figure out whats wrong with his connection so he doesnt get banned from other sites but i would also like to get him back on revTT. He was a good user on there, I know he donated as well.
So he has another PC and I got him to run speedtest on it. Getting elevated speeds on that too, his results are actually all over the place, the only thing they are consistent on is being too high. Could this be something to do with his ISP?
