I started downloading FreeBSD last night and it started off _really_
slow (25KB/s), but by this morning it was done (and I had uploaded
nearly 17GB). This was not on Shaw, but just pointing out that the
torrents for FreeBSD may not have been seeded well yet.
I haven't really downloaded much via Bittorrent on Shaw, but a friend
does and he hasn't noticed any changes, mind you he has the Extreme
