Help With Downloads Speed Tags: LAN Download Games Torrent Networking Last response: January 18, 2013 6:59 PM in Networking Share markalmza January 14, 2013 10:14:15 PM Hey when I use the speedtest .net site it's says that my download speed is 1.3 mbps but when I download a game (not torrent) i only get a max speed of 133 Kbps. Why is that?? More about : downloads speed PhilFrisbie January 16, 2013 7:00:18 PM When you download a game you are being told the speed is 133 KBps (bytes per second), not Kbps (bits per second).
