      Does no traffic management definitely include P2P?

      I signed up to Sky Broadband Unlimited on the 1st of this month and it's due for activation on the 17th. I have my router. Anyway, my question is does Sky leave all P2P traffic running at line speed? Could I download torrents at full speed? Because if so, that's pretty impressive . My current and soon-to-be former ISP, Plusnet throttles the heck out of a lot of traffic and I'll be glad to leave management and caps forever!

      my question is does Sky leave all P2P traffic running at line speed
      Yes

      Could I download torrents at full speed?
      Yes - dependent on those uploading them of course

      I can create a torrent and hook you onto my 1Gbps dedi if you wanna scream the pants off your link

      When I upload I upload! I've got a ratio of 181.493 at the mo with 180TB uploaded in the short space of time I've been on a particular torrent site

      I left virgin about 2 years ago
      I knew theyr trottled the web browsing badly
      and was with them for 11 years for broadband

      most public trackers where very slow 50-200k bouncing
      but private ones seemed ok on the whole
      so i put it down to more leachers on the public trackers and not virgin

      its very very rare for a public tracker not to give me the full 2.3 meg within a min of starting the torrent on sky
