ISP Needs Volunteers to Have Their BitTorrent Traffic Throttled

How many BitTorrent users do you know that would volunteer to have their bandwidth throttled?

For BitTorrent users the aim is get the fastest speeds possible so an offer from Australia’s largest ISP isn’t likely to be a file-sharing hit. Telstra is calling for volunteers to participate in a trial in which they will be asked to report on how "speed differences" on their favorite protocol affects their enjoyment of the Internet. The trials have been slammed by a rival ISP.
