Possibly the file is located on a server with high traffic. Try another and report back on the speed. Its not your ISP speed capping I take it? (I know VM cap speeds after a certain amount of downloads). Also for some reason I find rapget plays up occasionally an I get faster speeds from pasting into my browser directly, you could give that a go.........

i would expect if my speed was being capped speedtest.net would show it?

Did you try another file?

I got my normal 900kb/s last night.

And speedtest doesn't show you been capped most the time. Especially if your ISP caps your download but you still sync at the same speed.


ah.so they are capping me then in the evenings it seems. just a few hours, but its the few hours when all the fiancees soaps are on. and i get bored so i wanna download lol.

is there a way to compare the speed each broadband company could give me?

Or will it all be pretty much the same?

its whatever your line supports most likely unless you are on a 2mb plan? your line may support a higher speed. there is a BT tool somewhere but ive long lost the link that will tell you pretty much what speed your line can support.

We've just tested your line and can confirm your line supports the UK's most complete broadband package, BT Total Broadband. We estimate your maximum download speed to be 3.5 Mbps (Megabits per second).


Hmmm - Now how to get that speed!
