Help this Newbie - I am dumb....


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I am brand new to this site, I am trying to up my speed.  I do a lot of file downloading via utorrent. I am getting a speed of around 30-40kb/s  (even though I have no idea what that means.

I am running XP, with my laptop.  It is brand new.  So it must be some sort of good speed.  Again, I am dumb with these computer things.  I am on Sympatico Wireless with Speedstream 6300. 

Here are the stats I ran.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 2636 Kbps about 2.6 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 322 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net (server2)

Test Time:: Mon Feb 6 02:07:53 EST 2006

Bottom Line:: 47X faster than 56K 1MB download in 3.18 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 43.97 % faster than the average for host (121.206)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-4H35Q67K0

Is that good?  How come I cant get speeds that people talk about in utorrent?  Anyone help this poor old loser????

It depends on what package You got from Sympatico... did You get the 3000/640 or the 5000/800?  ... if You have the 3 meg package then Your speed is right on...actually it was better then mine by 0.1megs or 20kB/s ... problem is there is never a constant speed with utorrent or any torrent for that matter... it depends on how many people you are d/l from ...etc..etc. I'm lucky if I get in the 120 to 190kB/s range. And that's if there is over 200 seeds to download from ,I usually get 30 to 60
