Yes it has been discussed before
Sorry, but it seems that the Sky Connect service uses some form of traffic shaping for P2P and torrents. You may find encrypting the traffic helps a bit. See elsewhere on the forum for info (use search).
Other SkyBB products are currently unaffected.

reading this thread i was thinking would a programe like download accelorator or flashget also be afected by traffic shaping the same as torrents ?? cos i know that flashget is also able to download torrents maybe someone could try flashget thats on the connect package and see what speeds they get
iv used this programe b4 for torrents and it starts off slow like most but does pick up speed u can disable the DHT too which u should do with any client someone wanna try see wot happens u never know
