    downloading a 200 MB file whilst speed is at 6 kbps.
    good thing is i'm already more than halfway through. but it's still a lot

    EDIT:

    this is because i'm using wifi, T_T
    time to go home, the speed won't rise up, probably i'll download the file again next time

    It's not because of wireless. G has a throughput of over six megabytes per second. Anything higher than that is reduced to it, but anything lower than the limit is not affected. "Wireless makes everything slower" is a myth.

    You can't get a file any faster than it's being given to you. If the source is only giving it to you at 1KB for some reason then you can only get it at 1KB.

    hmm, probably, but i was at school and i was still the only one there(it's a small school) it went 156kbps. then when other people arrived i went waaaaay down. isn't internet speed in wifi shared among people in the network?

    oh it's not megaupload

    Internet speed is split over the network PERIOD, wifi or not.

    Speaking of download speeds, there could be interenet that can download 1000mbps, but most FREE downloads will still just be 100kbps, i find it stupid.
    Anyway whenever there's the problem of like 10kbps i just don't bother downloading...

    You find it stupid that websites aren't letting you download off their expensive servers at full speed for free?
    Sounds about right to me.
