    I have an Internet conection via CableCompany, and I even have one of those ¨cable modems¨ that is used to conect the ¨coaxia video like¨ cable and from there to the PC using a diferent cable (like telephone jack but bigger).

    Everytime I run a BandWidth test, it gives me from 200 to 250kbps, so, its fine, its fine to download music at 30 or 35kbps, but since im not getting those unvelivable speeds of 100kbps with bittorrent,
    I was wondering, is it posible that my bandwith is not real, or is there a factor that Im not aware with Cable?

    250kbps = 31.25kByte/s so the speed you get is fine.

    In the end the speed you'll get depends on the ISP and what you pay for.
    I guess you have a 256Kb/s connection so you wont get faster speeds than 32KB/s

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines


    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to there level and beat you with experience!!

    I have that same speed.

    You basically jsut take what your ISP says your speed is (kbps OR mbps) then devide by 8.

    256/8 = 32kB/s

    little b = bits.
    big B = bytes.
    8bits = 1byte.

    Yes ¨rossco¨, I knew that (bits n bites thing), but I had never understood the internet speed, well, at least not the correct way.

    And ¨Reality¨, sadly here in Mexico (Tijuana) they take advantage of the little competence they have, so I pay $360.00 Pesos (montly)($32 US Dlls) for the 256kb conection by Cable.

    Do you have any advice ?

    Humm, naaa I´ll pass on that.
    It seems like too much truble and riski,
    may be if it were easier.
