Thread: Bittorrent Slows Down Kazaa?

  1. #1
    Is it just me or has Kazaa slowed down since the proliferation of Bittorrent? I assume it's because everyone wants to boost their Uploads in Bittorrent so they cut their uploading in Kazaa and boost their PL with cheats.

    no, none uses kazaa while their using Bt. beacuse its detremental to both downloading and uploading to use both

    it's detrimental if you use the regular BT client with ADSL. without a throttle on BT's upload speed, it can choke your internet connection.

    use the experimental BT client which includes a bandwidth throttle, and you can easily run it alongside kazaa.

    I suppose that if everyone is switching off Kazaa in favour of BT then it would slow Kazaa down. QED either way!

    95% of all Kazaa users doesn't even know what BitTorrent is, so I don't think that is the problem.

    I have found that Bittorrent & kazaa compliment each other quite well.

    *You can use bittorrent to share specific files with specific people, just upload a torrent & point to the website and tracker.

    *Kazaa still is the top dog in my opinion, although a little slooow.

    Well i wouldnt probably use both at the same time anyway, since between the two theyd suck up every bit of bandwidth. Torrents are good for getting anime episodes in a hurry, but it doesnt really have a search capability to find anything you dont know is there already.

    BitTorrent is ok, but kazaa is still better.
