    I am not too clever when it comes to all these numbers on the laptop. But I was downloading a UK program and it's taking forever. I am downloading thru Megaupload via Firefox. I did a speed test and this is what it says. (By the way I am with Cox Cable),

    DL = 13.36Mb/s
    UL = 1.86Mb/s
    Ping = 101ms

    Is this okay? I DLd yesterday and it only took about 7 mins for a 30 min show ??? It's saying that this one is gonna be nearly 3 hours!

    Better then what I get thru Road Runner. Pretty much double what I get.

    The place you are downloading from could be getting swamped with requests.

    Ok, Squash. That could be right. It was a very popular UK show that was on last night.
    Thank you for replying to me.
    Wow, if your speed is as slow as half the speed of mine, I'd have already put an AXE thru it!
