unit of measure used in download limit

Postby marionjeff » Thu May 14, 2015 4:38 pm

I'm using Frostwire Basic for Android from Google Play.
The download limit ranges from 0-102400.
I'm wondering if what is the unit of measure used.
Is it in KB/s, kb/s, or KiB/s?
And is bitrate limiting working?

The unit of measure is Kilo Bytes / sec.

Bitrate limiting has been working on the version, 5.7.7, that I'm using.

I am on Win7, so I can't really speak for Android.

On the Google Play's description, Frostwire doesn't have limitations on download speeds

Your point is? There are no limitations - UNLESS the user determines the set some. I usually limit upload speed so to preserve most of my bandwidth to downloading and allow other communications to occur.

For a well seeded torrent, FW will max out my bandwidth very quickly. Without setting some limits, it's difficult to do anything else online, and sometimes I choose to do so. I control my FW limits as I need.

When I set the download limit to 50, the transfer rate goes down until it became 0 b/s. But when I set it to 0 which means Unlimited then the transfer rate becomes normal.
I don't have any choice but to set it to Unlimited.

Zero on windows means zero, but this is a mobile group, so I don't know. Maybe it doesn't work on mobile.

The latest android OS Lollipop is so screwed up it bricked some phones.
