    why man ,this is not fair.
  3. if you pay for a faster connection you can download faster: however, your download speed can also be effected by the Upload speed of the server you are connecting to.

    so if your download speed you pay for is 20Mb/s but the server you download for can only upload at 1.4Mb/s then the max speed you can download is 1.4Mb/s

    my down and up speed is only 32 KB/s.
  5. are you using a dial up modem connection?

    no broadband connection.
  7. "Not fair" depends on how much it costs the ISP to supply you that bandwidth.

    100Mb/s for $40/month may be expensive in Toyko but 100Kb/s for $100/month may be cheap in New Zealand.
  8. Are we talking Kb/s or Mb/s speed?

    my dial up modem does 56Kb/s.

    usually broadband should be around 500kb/s and up


    What speed are you paying for and what speed are you suppose to have?
