I have to point out that P2P is entirely dependant on the person you are downloading from.. and in most cases they will throttle the upload. Thats why P2P is terrible for downloading anything substantial. When I used to use them I would cap the upload to 1kb for 5 connections. meaning each getting 0.2kb download. When people can do that its not worth the hassle, now just buy something legit and download in minutes, if not seconds.
BTW if Ubuntu why not download it from Ubuntu's own website. It takes 2 minutes for the 2.3gb download.
you don't think anyone using torrents are really using it for Linux distro right. that's just the posted example so they don't get told they can't help illegal downloaders. we all know the real problem is all the movies and CDs

Tsk Tsk, so cynical
A lot of people have a need to download multiple Nix distros 2 or 3 times a day. For ummm.....research........
Just like those VM news group servers (are they still up?), people didn't go to them for the latest news from The Guardian or BBC. They went there to download & upload illegal copies of games/movies/TV shows/etc.
Same for a lot of people who used to use IRC clients (which were meant for chat primarily) but they would add in DCC addons to automate the piracy process.
The hub 4 is terrible, I upgraded to gig1 and was getting around TV right next to the hub on a 1350mbps capable wifi 6 device. I upgraded my router to the NETGEAR Nighthawk AX12 Tri band router and now get 900+ in the same place.

That sounds about right, the limiting factor is now the connection between the Nighthawk and the VM Hub which will only be 1 Gbit (or more likely 940 Mb/s allowing for overheads etc.)
The SH4 should have a 2.5Gb Network port on it, bu only putting a 1Gb Network is very limmiting.
VM missed a trick there.
-- Red (VM SH2 AC Beta tester) Running on 1Gbps VM service with SH4 in Modem Mode, with a ASUS GT-AX6000 router. With this setup I get Fantastic WIRED and WIRELESS Signals in my home. I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech. My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?
Still a moot point as the device VM are supplying is for a 1Gb/s service and I think you will find the majority of people have voiced this, I added it should have had WIFI 6 AX also (Which I do have on PC).
You can buy relatively cheap Mobos with 2.5Gb/s and even 5Gb/s NICs now and a few are 10Gb/s (all under $300).
