P2P freeze internet.

Hi,  when i got p2p download without freedome i get 10MB/s download speed; when freedome turned on i might get speed at the start up to  4-5MB/s but then it starts to drop and i mean drop to a freeze. Cannot get youtube to load anything, cannot even get to google.com while p2p  (utorrent) is on. When i stop p2p i once again can connect to youtube and google etc.


Do i have something wrong with  the Utorrent client, settings or something?

    Hi Frozen,


    Please have a look at this article regarding Torrent and Freedome.

    Hi Laksh, yes i've read  the link you gave. I also noticed that it has a list of "Gateways" which are affected by the restriction.


    I have tried with Espoo and Stockholm gateways and on those i get the "freeze".


    And please note that the freeze also affects "web (http/https) services"(youtube, google etc.)

    Hi Frozen,


    Just doing a followup, are you able to access utorrent using the Espoo and Stockholm gateways? Usually, when a block happens on a particular location (which are mentioned in the article), it blocks the connection from the other locations as well temporarily, when you try to connect. The restrictions are automatically lifted after a few hours time.
