AbdulB Posted October 23, 2020 CID Report Share Posted October 23, 2020 So I have plan of 25Mbps Upload and Download and I am based in India. But whenever I download videos on browser the speed is significantly slower then what I am paying for. I get speed of 450-500 Kbps. But while using bit-torrent to download my speed is upto 2.5-3.0 MBps(My true internet speed). I am using a firefox browser and have a Linux OS [Distro: POP_OS]. Oh also, while downloading movies/series on Netflix app the speed is good, I mean it takes about 3-4 mins to download a 1.5 or 1 Gb data. Why is the download speed so different on a browser as compared to a torrent and app? Does this has to do something with websites? Update: I just wanted to confirm the download speed again and now the download speed is 3.0 to 4.5 MBps. Edit: I ran the speed test here on testmy.net with default settings and the download speed is 3.3Mbps and upload speed is 17.8Mbps. This speed test was conducted at the same time when my download was 3.0 to 4.5MBps (as mentioned above) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
