QuickTorrent Gets New URL
A few months after making use of QuickTorrent at the flat I stay in, while I am at University, I have noticed my ISP throttle access and download from the website, to ridiculous speeds (downloads don’t exceed 50Kb/sec). I am surprised the University has not blocked access to QuickTorrent (I am sure by now I have transferred over 200GB of data from the service).
The guys over at QuickTorrent announced on their Facebook page, they have created a new web URL where users can use the service (https://qtnow.com). They mention they will be moving all operations to this domain over time.
I am glad this has happened – the throttling has gotten really bad, so bad that I get better download speeds and access, if I access QuickTorrent (http://www.quicktorrent.io) through the VPN service at University. I hope QuickTorrent keeps two or three URL’s open, for when our ISP’s and the University, “gets smarter”.
Side Note: I have received an E-Mail from the university warning me of my high data usage… 23.1GB in 7 days… and that I had made the top 20 internet users at the university… feels like a trophy to me 🙂
