Slow Download Speeds...


Recommended Posts

Ok, I am helping a friend out right now on his PC. He has a 2mb down 512 up Internet speed. He gets 200 something KB per second on Internet explorer downloading something but on uTorrent he is getting like 1.6kbps.It is going slow and taking days to download. We checked the ports on uTorrent and they are open. It is a active file he is downloading to, it has like 50 seeds and maybe 2 people are leeching off him. I myself just downloaded it and got like 500 something kbps. What could his problem be?

There is a lot of controversy over ISP's throttling torrents now. It starts out great and then almost comes to a screeching halt.

So it is possible that his ISP is watching what he downloads, to make sure it isn't illegal? Is what you're trying to say? Or do they just screw with you lol.
