    Has anybody ever considered creating a tracker that only allows high speed connections?

    With what seems to be a widening gap in bandwidth (seedboxes vs asynchronous DSL) it only makes sense that users with fast connections would want to more easily share between one another. I know even 100Mb connections get maxed out with new releases, but if all the content on a tracker could be downloaded at maximum speed I think such a site would extrodinary.

    If this is what your are looking for then just join bitmetv, obviously they allow slow connections but the majority of connections there are super quick 100/100 maxes out both ways on most new torrents...


    Baby On The Way OMFG !

    It exists already, but it is called scene axx via an FTP ring.

    Trackers costs money, seedboxes costs money, just because round here we see a lot of seedbox discussion, in the wider torrenting community they are limited to a very small minority and mainly limited to the site uploaders.

    There would be very little demand for an elitist seedbox only tracker as they would soon realise it would be better to get onto the FTP ring as above.
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    On the sign up screen I suppose you could put in something that required you to download / upload a sample file of X mb in Y seconds.

    Of course method this wouldn't bee enforceable once you'd joined up unless the only IP you could leech / seed with was the one you signed up with

    Again years ago certain Direct Connect hubs would only let you join if your connection was fast enough so there must be code out there.

    I'm thinking each new member would have to download/upload a test torrent to verify speed, although that sounds tedious. Maybe a custom speed test could be arranged and after that members have to meet a weekly upload speed average.

    Ya but thats just TV. Think of a tracker where users share anything and everything; a collection style tracker without any content type limits.
    Plus the connection requirement might help keep out the n00bs

    Wouldn't really keep out noobs it would just alienate peep's with slow connections, 90% of us in the UK to start with, I think on demand streaming is future of filesharing (stream as you download)

    I dont know much about these FTP rings, but the Bittorrent protocol still seems like the better choice.

    Trackers check the data you DL to make sure it is correct, FTP is still a 1-1 transfer and even with 100/100 speeds transfers could encounter congestion; BT would allow for more efficient transfer to make sure your connection is always maxed out.

    You're right not many people have seedboxes, but a large community wouldnt really be needed if everybody large upstream bandwidth.
