I've currently got a 750kbit BB through cable, but my DL speed never gets above 14KB/s - I would expect around 70 KB/s. I've tried various sites and the speed is usually 7KB/s, with the maximum at 14 KB. I've spoken to my ISP, who kindly put me on a 2Mbit connection but the speed is the same. An engineer is coming around later in the week to test the line (plug his laptop in and see if he gets the same speed) so at least I'll know whether it is my ageing PC or the line. If it is my PC, is there anything I can check or change to get the speed up. eg a setting called 'MAX_DOWNLOAD_SPEED' set to '14KB/s' would be obvious. any suggestions?
