Download Speed Decreasing??

  Winxx 12:27 12 Nov 2006

Hi, im a PSP hacker so im constantly downloading Apps and Videos for it.

I used to be getting good speeds on my downloads but lately IE seems to be giving me extemely slow speeds that a video of 50mb takes 2 hours, i don't understand i used to be able to download with ease?

it is possible your speed has been throttled by your isp if they are of an opinion you are a bandwidth hogger. basically to which you have admitted.

sorry, i don't understand what you mean??

I download from all different PSP sites, you think they have all turned on me and slowed down their servers??

No,he means your ISP may have put a limit on your conn speed not the server you are connecting to.

If they have done this though i would have thought
they would have informed you about it.

So how do i fix this?

Talk to your ISP and ask them if they have throttled your conn,if they have then you need to come to some arrangement with them.
If not then it may be due to somthing else and you can post back.

I would also run a spyware/virus scan on the pc just to make sure you havent picked up any nasty stuff.
