Default Re: Help my average downloading speed has changed

100kb per sec is your full speed? damn i feel sorry for you spywarebanisher. i can only just about live with my 240kb/s speed, getting upgraded this week though

anyway depends what package you have aswell. on BT here in the uk you can either get 2gb, 40gb, or unlimited bandwidth. im on unlimited, its fair usage though. b*stards, that could mean anything

dude you've got your speeds messed up. internet speed is measured in megabits. you have 3 megaBIT per second internet. you are downloading at 300-350 kiloBYTES per second (what firefox and IE measure it in basically) and 350 kilobytes is equal to 2.734375 megaBITS, so you are actually getting what you pay for.

you should be getting atleast 100kb/s although it all depends on the isp and the line. it say 60kb/s is more of a 512kb-1mb speed, well in my own experience anyway
