download speed of 20 kbps via DSL


Recommended Posts

hi. i have a dsl connection. According to the service provider speed is between 100-385kbps. but when i download using bitcomet or even the windows download manager, max rate is around 24kbps. is this normal?

Btw, can anyone recommend a torrent site with classic p***?

Hi there.

You may try some speed guides from this forum; although I'd recommend you read this Wikipedia article beforehand. I hope you have 24 kB/s speed, as BitComet measures speeds in kilobytes, rather than kilobits. 3 kB/s over DSL would really be miserable, athough 192 kbit/s seems quite normal...

Classic p***? I have almost 1TB of it via Direct Connect within my district's LAN, so I never bothered myself searching for it over I-net :)

To think of it... TPB guys boasted they have tons of it, but they ask for registration. Well, I mean The Phoenix Bay :)

Or google for "torrent search" (including quotes) - you'll get most well-known sites within first few pages to ask "xxx" there for...

Const is correct, as you are confusing bits "b" with Bytes "B"

your isp provides speeds in bits, and bit torrent protocall measures Bytes

8 bits = 1 Byte

Now you speeds should seem more in line with your connection.
