You should expect something around 14K downloads on an average. Theoretically you can go upto 16K but around 14K is a decent average download speed.That means you should be able to download around 50MB in one hour or a 10MB file should take something like 12 minutes. :)

I'd say 12-14KB/s u cant get more as Airtel uses PPP over ATM, which adds a fixed overhead. It should stay consistant thereafter.

Hence the reason they say upto 128kbs.

nope sry to let u down dude, but dwld accelerator DO NOT accelerate, all they're good for is their ability to resume. i get speed upto 13 and not more than that. it should be noted that i'm talkin bout stable speeds here, even my dwld starts at around 70-100kBps and then settles down somewhere near 13kBps. No dwld accelerator can do a shit about it !!!!

download accelerators split the files ..they open up like 4-8 connections(depending on ur setting) and yeah they do help in getting the full speed from ur line..no doubt.
