I'm at QuakeCon and they throttle the internet connection here to 300Kb/s. However when I wrap all my downloads in a nice SSH blanket through a friends server on a DS3 I'm seeing DL speeds of 13480Kb/s. I'm downloading files at an insane speed. I went up to the noc and told them and they don't believe me. shrug Anyway, they us using lynksys equipment but I don't see why their network throttling would behave differently via SSH.

what's so hard to believe? they probably just did a quick and dirty QoS setup based on port number.
