While I should normally be getting 125kbps download speed, I'm only getting 62-64kbps on http/torrent downloads. I'm also posting a picture of my statistics, is there anything wrong here? Btw I'm on the old 30gb 2mb connection then fup after that 1mbps.



Thanks

Torrent download speed may not always be good...I was getting around the same speed (512 kbps) when I had the same plan as yours. I migrated to 4mbps/150gb and torrent speed has greatly improved....I guess now Airtel wants me to download faster to force me to buy SmartBytes. :blackeyed:

Now that you mention it I woke up early today and just now checked a torrent and the speed is 125kbps as it should be. Starting to thinking Airtel gets off on throttling our speeds like that. :wilt:

I've decided to use a paid vpn as well. Which one are you using? :)
