go to and do the speed test, and come back with your results.

If your d/loading from a p2p network then you can't d/load faster than the other persons connection...if they have a modem thats all the speed you can get because thats all they can put out...if other people are also d/loading that file then you'll only get a share of that bandwidth as well

do you know any sites that arent p2p networks that i might get a faster download speed one of the tracks is going to take 40 min i feel having a adsl connection has its good points and bad points thanks
