Hi, I got my Rain 5G 30mbps yesterday, my speed test results are very good, 35mbps Download and 25mbps Upload.
My problem is that when I try to download with utorrent (P2P) I am only getting 50kbps download max. Is Rain throttling P2P or is there some setting in my router or utorrent that I must change to fix this.

Rain throttles torrents to 50kbps during the day on all packages as far as I'm aware.

During the night 23:00-05:00, torrents should be full speed (I think).

Alternatively you can use a VPN to bypass the throttling.

Could it be tower / location congestion thereby limiting P2P throughput?

This is me right now while im on a Teams call as well (Unlimited option)

Use a VPN. Windscribe is $2 per month per location and unlimited data with ROBERT adblock. Just remember there are a reason Rain shapes torrents. Rather stream it's 2020 after all.

I have Pro so have access to all locations. If you just want to bypass shaping then just pick the SA locations with unlimited data and ROBERT adblock. Netflix works on all servers now. They even unblocked Showmax for me.

Perfect appreciate the assist thanks a mill !!
I think torrents is throttled on South African Windscribe servers, well they have been for me. Rather go with another country.
I'm not sure, backstreetboy can you confirm?
