I got connected to Moldtelecom’s DSL service at last. Seeing Azureus download (from Moldova) at 250kB/s was really great!
An unexpected inconvenience was that you need to log-in every time you restart your computer. I wasn’t aware that would be necessary. But with Konqueror remembering usernames and passwords that’s really a non-issue.
An unforeseen advantage is the separation of incoming and outgoing bandwidth. The upload speed for external networks is higher than download speed, so limiting upload to 1kB/s is no longer necessary for external torrents to obtain reasonable speed ;)
