      What heavy traffic shaping is that then. There is only Torrent throttling during peak hours and weekends and most users don't give a s**t about that.

      I dont use BT, but on other forums it has been reported that services like Apple Updates had also been slowed down..

      heavy traffic shaping maybe the wrong word to use, congestion maybe more suitable.

      In all fairness, I heard that Apple screwed up on the DNS recently, hence why there were so many issues.
