Does MyRepublic throttle the network?
In short: no.
Throttling typically refers a bandwidth limit imposed by Internet Service Providers (ISP) on traffic identified to be BitTorrent or P2P.
MyRepublic manages our network by a flexible traffic data prioritisation system.
This means that P2P file-sharing applications are allowed to run as fast as possible as long as they do not disrupt higher priority applications such as video streaming or gaming. As the system adapts to the demands on our network, there is no need for us to impose a fixed limit on BitTorrent download speed.
In other words, as long as the MyRepublic network has the capacity, your BitTorrent can run at 50Mb/s or 500Mb/s or however fast the torrent’s available seeds, your computer and connection allows.
