Windows 7: Very Slow Dl Speeds

Whats the point of arguing about uTorrent. Why not just use Bittorrent or Bitcomet. Best torrent systems in my view!

Also I would check for malware because they can easily get around when dealing with torrents.

I can speeds of up to 2MPS depending on the site, microsoft and game updates etc. And Im only on wireless pre paid broadband. but generally around 200-400kbs for browsing and other site downloads.

So it's just torrents? As suggested, try a different client. Be aware that some ISPs can detect the use of torrents, and will throttle the speed accordingly.

No worries Dwarf. Thanks for the heads up.

Just out of interest Dwarf, What kind of speeds would I be getting with wireless Broadband in England for general site downloads and browsing?

I'm getting ~4Mb/sec on a wired Ethernet connection. It mainly depends on how far we are from the exchange (the wire path, not as the crow flies). I don't use wireless, even though my router has the capability. I would expect something ~95% of the maximum wired speed.

Others who use a wireless connection in the UK (and elsewhere) will be able to give you a better answer. I'm sure that you will interested to see what your fellow Australians say on this matter.

Digerati,
I gladly paid for albums (over 180) and DVDs (~90) when I was healthy enough to work.
The digital format enables movie companies to get paid several times for the same product (theaters, ppv, payTV, dvd sales, rentals, and finally cable television). The same digital format enables consumers with a computer to avoid these repeated costs. In what other industry can a producer get paid so often for the same product?
So who is cheating who???
