I am recently connected to broad band and the connecting speed now shows 100Mbps.I have a 256mb ram and 1.2ghs amd duron processor. While downloading a file I get a initial speed of 40-45mbps speed. I am glad if any one enlighten me whether this speed is normal or anything to be done to increase the speed.
Thank you
Regards,
Mohan

No way are you getting 40-45mbps speed. I think you mean 40-45 kbps speed. That is about 0.3125 MB to 0.390625 so way under 1/2 MB.

If your really are getting those speeds then it is not normal and your getting supper fast downloads and I would not tell my ISP about it but like I said I bet you mean kbps

What is the speed your ISP says you are to be getting?

Now if you did get a super fast speed like that then it may not be that fast anyplace else.
I had gottern super fast downloads on cable about 6 times in the pass 3 years.

Ok was thinking 40-45 kbps. But what is the speed they say you are getting from your ISP?
Need to know that befor anyone can say if it is good or not but it does seem to be on the slow side.

I have 6 MB speed but most of my download are 200 KB or less so that is 1.5 MB :( so not very good. But I downloaded tonight a 6.32 MB file in a second so that is about 45 MB speed.
Yea that is super fast but not something you see much of.

So see how fast you can download this zip file here.

See it was just one of those things because it took me 11 seconds just now but a couple hours ago it was a second or less. It was so fast I never seen the download box come up.
I did this again and got super fast speeds. :D

That is slow but still you have not said what your ISP are.
Not the speed your getting from a download but what speed your ISP says you are to be getting.

Ask your ISP or look up your plan that your paying for to see what your speed is.

Download speeds are determined by the capapility/capacity of the server or source you are downloading from. You maight have the fastest connection in the world, but if the server you are connectting to is slow, well, you know the rest.
