    You missed telling us anything about your connection.

    This is not all that abnormal, and would obviously depend on the source of the download.

    One issue is that the speed is just an estimate, and early in most transfers, it starts very high, then as more data is accumulated, it approaches reality.

    dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-08-02 02:27:50 EST:
    326 / 122
    Your download speed : 326 kbps or 40.7 KB/sec.
    That is 90% worse than an average user on verizon.net

    Your upload speed : 122 kbps or 15.2 KB/sec.
    That is 84.6% worse than an average user on verizon.net

    Well, they're right, those speeds suck! :D

    What does Verizon say that you should have? If you're a long ways from the teleco CO, the DSL speeds get slower.
