I read NZ post and they tend to get 30-100kb/sec.
I have tried and the best I have got was 10kb/sec overall.
Many times I am only getting 5kb/sec.
I am on the Xnet river plan.
I am using Bit Comet, ports are forwarded to 7550 as in the preference on the software and on the my ADSL router (LinksysWAG54G) linked to laptop via network cable (hard wired). I have set download unlimited, upload at 20, althou I have tried it as unlimited as well. From a article UPnP forwarding is off, simulatenous download task number is "5".
I have tested my line speed with a link provided by Xnet tech and its at 1.97Mbit, Telecom is working with it I was advised. Usually with web I download at 60kb/sec and with download accelerator I get up to 260kb/sec, generally a min of 200kb/sec.
