Rafayel, The following information has been copied from Vividwireless Terms and Conditions. I have provided 2 links and the section within those links regarding Torrents. The following condition appears within both areas provided:

"You do not use our services correctly, such as by using illegal torrents;"

You can download torrents, as long as they are legal to download. As well, torrents would be prioritised by Vividwireless network managing system, that would put emails, general web browsing, and maybe streaming (Netflix, Stan etc), above downloading torrents, so download speed may be slower.

If you feel you need more information, I would suggest contacting Tech Support - 1300 327 837

Hi Rafayel,

Using Torrent software per se is not illegal; it is the Content that you download that might be illegally obtained.

e.g. software, music, movies.

Hence vividwireless use the phrase "illegal torrents" to differentiate.
