For some reason, eMule can bypass throttling on TM connections if you have a hotspot. This is quite frustrating when you used up all your highspeed, to be stuck at 14KB/s.
I do not know if this works on other ISPs.
Follow these simple steps:
Since you have 14KB/s throttling, set your download limit speed below this, to about 10kB/s, or so.
Options, Connections, check download limits, set to 10K, then Apply.
Wait for at least 5-10 minutes, (while you are actually downloading several files, they must be downloading, or it will not work).
This triggers something in T-mobile's throttling servers, that their buffers are overflowing, and it releases the limits for a given IP address.
Then uncheck the download limit check box, after the 5-10 minutes or more time, click apply.
Then watch the some of the filespeeds rise to many times faster, maybe to 900KB/s.
It also makes the upload speed do the same, for the same clients of the same IP address.

I hope this helps a few people, who can't wait.
I just hope they don't see this post, because they'll undo this valuable p2p feature we need for multi-GB files.
Because highspeed internet should be free.
