hey plz dont get confused........ 300kb/s ~ implies kilo bits per sec..... correct me if I am wrong. That translates to ~40KB/s (in terms of Kilo Bytes) So speeds that your Download accelerator shows 30~40KB/s, are max speeds on 256~300kbps lines. It does not mean that you will get 300KB/s or 400KB/s !!! So on generalizing, For a 256kbps connection 30~40KBPS is max..... you should be happy..... there is mathematical conversion....between kbps & KB/s so other member can throw light on this topic... (a maths prof...needed). -pranKster.
