    Default Mweb blocking facebook app due to it using the "same port" as torrents.

    Is anyone able to tell me if torrents indeed do use the same port and if so is this legal? Also please recommend me a new isp.

    Thanks

    Why would anyone want to use Mweb?

    We posted 100 times to avoid MWEB on forum.
    Mweb is full of $hIt. Just switch ISP and you will lose argument against those idiots.
    Save yourself the stress and move to another ISP.

    Well he is talking crap. You can set torrent software to use any port though the default is 6881-6889. Facebook via a web browser will use port 443 as it uses HTTPS. Don't know what the app uses.

    Can't recommend any but I'd look at Webafrica, Crystalweb and Axxess. Don't even think of Afrihost. /spits

    I am with them. Be aware to cancel requires a calendar month notice, same as Mweb. I hate that. But I am generally happy with them.

    Yes, told mweb they can take their 30 days and stick it. I have been having latency issues for 5 months with them.
