Dialog OfficeNet+ rocks on a holiday

The following is a screenshot of Transmission downloading a movie. Clearly, Dialog isn’t blocking P2P traffic today, but on numerous occasions during a normal working day, I’ve had problems logging into, seeing the status of others and talking on Skype on this connection. Click for larger image.


For a far more rigorous analysis of Dialog’s HomeNet+ connection (and other ‘broadband’ connections), check out the results of Lirneasia’s Quality of Service study here.
