if a truck lick down a line how long do you estimate flow would take to come repair it? whats the worse timing story u ever heard? regardless of the answer I am still of the belief that everybody should abandon TSTT in favor of FLOW. FLOW needs the money to expand and provide Digital for everyone, we should help our brothers and sisters suffering in this country. Let us not support a company that secretly bills you for 5 months after you applied for a disconnection even though their policy is disconnect after 2 months of no pay but conveniently bills everyone who logs in a report for disconnection.

about a month it takes

^1 month? so how that man get his one fixed in 1 day?

Its usually 2 to 3 months with TSTT. 1 month still seems a bit too long, I also know if you spam FLOW's facebook page they respond very quickly aswell.

Now I am not talking about the line coming to my house eh I meant like somewhere down the street if a truck lick down a flow line, won't the whole neighbourhood be out of flow service? I highly doubt they would take a month to fix the service of a whole street or neighbourhood. hmm

He's probably in an area with business customers. They treat business customers better than residential.

ow ho well I eh know then. Hopefully nothing ever happens to my line with no truck, also since there is Digicel around the corner they might beef up customer service for everyone. Plus C&W buy out flow so there is that aswell. Perhaps better service is in the horizon.

Tried forcing encryption in utorrent, random port and still topping out at 212kB/sec now.

Is it just the time of day or I did something wrong?

I would suspect either not enough seeds, too many leeches, your connection is underload in your area.

However you should use port 80 instead of random port. Port 80 works better than using random cause its a port they can't throttle or bloc etc

^ I does get that problem but very few times. Might last for 15 minutes to an hour but maybe once or twice a week. I don't think any of this will fix until Cable and Wireless gets approval from TATT for Flow Trinidad. One would assume C&W is very serious about proper service, though prices may increase but hey if thats the case so be it. I will take less speed for better service anyday, 15mb is too much for me.

+1 for encryption. I have the Turbo 15 package, I get great Netflix streaming, HD YouTube, gaming everything. Torrents I swear I was getting 1-10kbps. Tried Vuze, Utorrent, BitTorrent the same thing. Random port, port checker, port forwarding nothing..the same slow ass speeds. Came here and read about the forced encryption and behold 1.8MB/s.

Thank you to who ever suggested that originally.

The problem with encryption is if you subscribe to private torrents from a website that requires you to login, said website won't be able to properly track your uploads...and that could spell disaster for your membership if you need to maintain a good ul/dl ratio.

unblockus shouldnt affect your bandwidth tho as it's a DNS fix...

Noticing a lot of packet loss on my end... can't even play a proper bf4 game... will continue to monitor. Also since I turned on bridge mode on the MoCA Modem i noticed all the fancy record and start over features on the TV Box is gone...

thats whats bothering me about it :(

i get all the open US content i want but for some reason the latency and download speed goes to the dogs....kinda weird considering its just DNS servers.

maybe im troubleshooting it from a wrong angle
