Hi Ger.

Due to the restrictions mobile operators put in place, peer to peer services 
like torrents are traffic shaped, this means that you wont get anywhere near 
the potential speed of your connection when downloading these types of 
files, legally or otherwise.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Subject: [BCAB] How to Download Torrents on a Teathered Internet Connection?

Hi all

I usually connect to the internet by way of my mobile phone - I have
an all I can eat data plan.

When I'm on this teathered connection, I can't download a torrent -
all legal torrents let me say.

Is there a reason this doesn't work and how can I fix it?
