BitTorrent traffic on SLT ADSL flows unhindered


SLT’s ADSL does not block BitTorrent data, according to Glasnost, a tool in the M-Labs suite. As noted on the website,

Glasnost attempts to detect whether your Internet access provider is performing application-specific traffic shaping. Currently, you can test if your ISP is throttling or blocking BitTorrent. Tests for other applications will follow soon. The measurement server records the user’s IP address, and all data packets received by the server from your computer or sent by the server to your computer. In addition, it monitors errors in the communication with the server and the throughput of the transfers for those communication “flows,” and sends them to the server.

Test results here.

Will test Dialog’s WiMax connection tomorrow.
