I run a local ISP, and we are getting reports from our users that
P2P speeds suck beyond the expected suckiness you get from using something
like Bittorrent (which punishes slow upload and rewards fast upload)
over an asynchronus link like ADSL.

It looks to me like our upstream provider _is_ throttling BT at least,
(as I get the same speed issues over my ADSL link which goes into the
same network) and I've not really played with any other P2P in the last
six months.

I guess I'll know in a month or so when we add an upstream link to a
different provider. ^_^
