Hi , Some times Torrent Clients
are able to find Local peers , mean if you are using Utorrent and downloading movie 1 at home and an other person seeding same thing at Your local network , The tracker Will Give the local peer address to the Client and you will be download data directly from that Peer and defiantly it will be on maximum speed available because of local network ,
i had tried this method on LAN , with an Iptorrent , torrent .
maybe same thing applied to optics Fiber Network.

So.. just to share an experience....
Today, I was downloading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon (yes, I know ) via torrents from a private tracker. The connection I used was a 1MB Nayatel volume capped corporate connection. Normally, I get speeds of around 150KBps on that connection but today, the speed jumped to 600KBps. I got 1GB down in around 40-45 minutes. Wonderful experience and superb speed.
But I still call shens on the crappy volume capped home connections. It's heartening to see the potential of their Optic Fiber network and it saddens me how less they are using it just for fear of losing corporate connections to unlimited home packages, if the latter were introduced.
