And I'm talking the actual download speed, not the whole "100MBits/sec" stuff.

Mine maxes out around 23-26KB/sec.

...

POST AWAY!


**EDIT**
Everyone saying they signed up for say "100mbps" has probably signed on for MegaBITS per second.
Multiply Megabytes Per Second by eight to get MegaBits Per Second.

depends on the site but max can go to bout 300kb/s - average is usually bout 130kb/s

Usually get 0.9mb/s down and 70kb/s up so about half what I'm paying for
#11
I'm supposed to be getting 170kb/s or so, which I get on only the official windows site, but I get about 50kb/s for absolutely everything else.

WHAT THE HELL?!
Speedtest.net said I've got 168KB/sec.
I've never hit that, I've nver even hit 30KB/sec on a torrent with 3000+ seeds, and very few leeches.

Are you using a router? and if so have you forwarded the ports properly?... Oops, I think speed test is basically saying that your downloading at 16.8kb/s, which would be within range if your saying your top speed is 30kb/s... What speed are you paying for?

Wow, that's a crazy fast upload speed. Wish I could get that.



Edit: looks like I spoke too soon. 15k download and 16k upload is ridiculously fast.

I think I'm using a router, don't know what it is though.
I don't know about ports.
And no, the Speedtest said 169KB/s. 0.0

Please explain? Thanks for your help too!

I get 320kb down on normal downloads but on torrents i get half that or even less. I wouldnt use torrents to determin speed, routers can be gay when it comes to torrents.

No offense but such a question / topic is utterly retarded.

It is always going to depend on a lot of factors, and vary considerably. Your TOP download speed (ie: what you pay for) is something that is much easier to answer since your ISP tells you and it's, well, what you're paying for.

But the actual download speed you get will depend on factors such as how far away the servers are from you, physically; latency in between the two points caused by network congestion and router bandwidth; latency at the server due to the bandwidth congestion or high traffic etc.

If you *REALLY* want to get this kind of topic answered in a remotely reliable and controlled manner then what you need to do is upload a large file somewhere. Somewhere where everyone will connect to the SAME server (in other words don't put it on a web host that uses a content distribution network) and have everyone download that same file and post their average download speed. Otherwise you're just getting a bunch of meaningless numbers.

If speed test says 169kb/s you basically divide by 10 to get the speed as it is displayed in Utorrent or whatever your using to download, meaning that your speed is 16.9kb/s, which makes sense if your hardly hitting 30 as speed test isn't 100% accurate and speeds vary throughout the day. From your speeds I'm going to guess you have 256k broadband? if not you should probably contact your internet provider as there could be a problem on the line. As for a router, is the modem plugged in to your computer or does it connect wirelessly?
