Unless you work for your ISP, there is ABSOLUTELY nothing you can do. Cable is a WAN connection, and therefore it shares a whole connection with every one of your neighbors that has a cable modem. Your speed is only based on how many people in your neighborhood are online at that one time. Plus, your cable moment should be fast enough to handle anything. If cable is too slow, grab [another] job and buy a T1 line.

It is, but the the site you download from also have a limited bandwidth. So unless you are the only one downloading at the time, it get slower the more poeple are downloading. Iknow I hate this as well. My connection says i have a 100mbs available, but usually only get between 30 and 70 kbs. cheers.

it also depends on the quality of your ISP and the speed rating they give you. Like computers, no two connections are equal.

i have 512/256 dsl, it's not the fastest. but it's constand. no matter what i download at 64kb/s all the time, so that makes me happy. i know that it's not going to go down or go up, and so whatever time the download says it'll be done
that's when it will be done.

now, go play with something or download something, and put a smile on your face. or pay 5 grand amonth for t3
