trying to download a video (Fan made) so its legit, before the piracy is wrong people jump in

 

anyhow first i tried downloading the video (downloads only 8.9Kb a sec)
tried some other downloads (cnet) and still slow speeds

anyone know why?

 

 

on infinity 2

“I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”

Re: strange speeds

not using P2P (these are downloads from websites directly)
the FUP was removed for the package i have so its unlimited (which surprisingly enough even for me i haven't reached yet(reffering to old 300GB limit)

so your post isn't that useful, dont know where you got P2P from when i didnt mention it

From that line as the majority of torrenting is pirated material, but anyway if your not using p2p then the only other explanation is the server that your are downloading from cannot provide a decent speed. You dont have any problems with speed tests which work in the same way as downloading from a web server

CNet can certainly supply the sppeds though.

Re: strange speeds

The direct download in the link you provided is via P2P protocols so will be traffic shaped.

Re: strange speeds

you might want to read under the P2P

"or use direct download if you cannot use torrent-files." 😉

Re: strange speeds

That server is unbelievably slow, i recommend using torrents but use uTorrent as it shouldn’t affect you pc then, no slowdowns. If you put it on to download now then is should be done before throttling starts at 4
