    ok i've heard a lot of complaints about ppl whose isps give them lame bw allotments like 1.5GB uploads a month.

    they often complaint about going over the limit so quick using bt and got their traffic capped so bad it's like using a 56k modem all over again.

    any way to help them staying within sharing 1.5GB a month and still be able to download like other bt users?

    btw leechers in bt still share unlike leechers in kazaa who dont share at all.

    so this is NOT a topic on how to leech or how to be freeloaders.

    EDIT: oops sorry mods i posted in the wrong section, move this thread to file sharing or somehting, thx

    ok i'll start first

    there are programs out there like netlimiter to manage your internet traffic but that doesn't really work well with bittorrent. if you cap your upload you cap your download as well

    how much you upload is how much you download, is the motto in bt

    so is there anyway to change that?

    Damn, I feel sorry for those guys. It's hard for me to survive a 50 Gb upload limit

    It is pretty easy for them to survive. They should download a bittorrent client called azureus. You can set your upload speed in it. I once tried to see how low I could put my upload speed before it had an affect on my download speed. I was able to set it as low as 6/5Kbytes and still get not effect on my upload speed (which was about 70kbytes.

    But there are some things you might like to know:

    I did this once to see what would happen.
    It was on a torrent from suprnova.org
