Noob - Slow Speeds - Help me!


Recommended Posts


I'm new to the whole downloading thing and need some advice.

I'm using uTorrent 1.4 and its working fine but the speed is awful.

On average it is 1-8 kbps download and 5-20 kbps upload. The highest download speed i've ever had is about 40 kbps.

Its taking me hours to download anything.

I live in Leicestershire, UK - out in the country a bit.

I have 8 meg broadband connection with Tiscali (connects at around 2.3-2.4)

I never have any problems with internet browsing or playing games, etc...

I did a speed test which gave me the following info:

279 / 62 (Kbps)

(34.1 / 7.5 KB/sec)


Any advice would be really appreciated.
