    it could be any number of things, firewall settings, SP2 issues, trying to download from sources that are blocked or have a full queue, ISP blocking, Solar flares, ect., ect.

    whats different since you downloaded fast?

    try this video and see what speeds you get, if you get good speeds, maybe your "normal" files are just rare with few open slots

    What the other guy is saying is that, you might be downloading rarer files with less users. P2P filesharing works where you download the same file from multiple people, increasing your speed. If you download from only a couple people, your speeds are going to decrease. And internet isnt the same all the time, i have cable and sometimes it will go 600kb/s, and then two seconds later it will be 30k/s, or even 2kb/s. Internet is an unpredictable mofo.
