Safaricom might be throttling torrents


Tried this past weekend and couldn’t go past 10KBps yet downloaded a 4GB ISO at 6Mbps


If you go full throttle on the unlimted 3 hours highest you can hit is 30 to 40 GB with speeds of 2 to 3 MBPS. It is still not bad but on `normal’ bundles the download speed is 6MBPS. I tried torrents it was 20kb/s on unlimited and over 1MBp/s on normal bundles.


I have learnt sth valuable today. I noticed that I did 19gbs for 3hrs another day yet I did only 500mbs torrent on for the same duration. Am now “seedboxing” hence forth haha
