So it appears that when cox notices an internet connection using a Bittorrent client, they throttle ALL internet for that customer. I just got home from being away for a few months, and the first day I was home I was getting download speeds of about 27Mbps (according to http://speedtest.net). I downloaded a torrent (ironically, it wasn't even an illegal one) three days ago, and ever since, my download speed has been at around 1-2Mbps. My neighbor, who also uses COX, is still getting 27Mbps. I also checked out Google's M-Lab and ran ShaperProbe which said my ISP was using shaping and that it was at a rate of almost 20Mbps. I am hoping that they have just flagged the account or something and it will go back to normal after a few days, but I have a bad feeling that this won't be the case, anything I can do?
