I am sick of being traffic shaped by my ISP, with which I have signed a 24Mb package.
I don't know what is the situation in other countries, but where I live (Portugal), there are ISPs who just can't fulfill their marketing promises and campaigns.
My torrent traffic has been repeatedly shaped by my ISP. It even happens that they send me so much RST packets that there are times when my torrent client goes crazy and stops responding, crashing.
What is your experience concerning this issue?
I have had some phone contacts with my ISP Support Team, and they consistently deny they are practicing traffic shaping. This situation makes me angry with them. I KNOW they are doing this.
I don't pay them to be lying to me.
What do you do to combat ISP traffic shaping?
As a protest, I am changing to another ISP.
Unfortunately, I am afraid I will have to change my email at ALL THE SITES where I am registered, and I am afraid that there are a lot of them!...
Indeed, you should not be dependent on the email address provided by your current ISP, as you never know when will you you have to change!...
I am thinking of registering my own domain, and eventually have my own personal email address, not dependent on any ISP.
A couple more of questions:
Where do you advise me to register my own domain?
Concerning hosting, which hosting company do you recommend?
FYI, I am running an FTP Server to share files with friends, with the help of No-IP.
To gain complete control over my -email, should I consider running my own mail server?
As I am planning publishing a site dedicated to computer security (Windows), what hosting companies do you recommend, based on your own experience?
Thanks in advance for your time and patience!
