      Yeah, I think maybe I should. Just out of curiousity, what are the two torrents you've just started - so I can compare?

      Oh - sorry - I've killed them now and deleted.

      One was an anime which I can't remember the name of (it had a huge number of seeds and peers) the other was a music file - could have been The Killers?

      Ok, think I've got it - Killers was coming down the line at 2meg, Weeds at 5meg. Looks like your advice to tweak the settings again worked.

      Now where did I put that faceplate...?

      (Course I've deleted the Killers too (for the attention of webpolice)

      Great isn't it

      I use Astraweb for binaries and get ~8 meg on a single file and completely max out at over 10 meg for more than one file. Great price structure too for pay-for-download (<0.20p per gig).

      I second that I use Astraweb and newshosting and I get 1.45MB/s from both so I cannot knock the speed

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
