A few of us (on Micronet) have been facing issues with torrents and when they (I hadn't at that time) called up their helpline, they said that they aren't throttling.
Around two weeks ago, I had called them up, and their CSR confirmed they are using bandwidth "shaping" techniques (either he didn't know what throttling was, or was avoiding it intentionally).
But yesterday, today, a friend called them up again, and they said we're testing certain areas (first it was denied, then one person said it - without specifying any region issues - and now, they say this) and throttling them.
I don't see why you'd throttle "certain areas", and well - had that been the case, why did you deny it before?
Anyway - this message serves as a caution for everyone - if you're into torrents, probably the best time to download them is soemtime in the morning, before noon. If you're not in to torrents, Micronet's a fairly good service.
I'm just not sure why the company did not bother informing customers in advance. I'd like to get my hands on their terms of contract and see what I can do in response to that.
Rather unprofessional to not inform customers of this change. Very sad.
