Download speeds (Movies)

  griffo 18:58 02 Jan 2006

I have joined a website where I can download movies (not that sort!). I am downloading a movie that my son has to do an appraisal on for his A Level. The problem is that it tells me it will take about 27 hours to download!!

Is there any way to improve this?

No. You can only upgrade to broadband. It would be cheaper to buy this movie. If you have paid $30 to download 'any' movie you will have probably been conned and given the address of a P2P site which although illegal, is free. The downloads depend on the connection of the host computer. If this is a dial up connecion then you will wait for eons.;-))

I'm on Broadband. The download rate fluctuates between 10kBs and about 20 kBs.

can I just ask Giffo, what site are you using and how much do you pay?
I'm looking for a good site myself and this sounds like one I should ignore.
Anybody got any ideas?

"The problem is that it tells me it will take about 27 hours to download!!"

Can you tell me what ISP you're with and what speed of broadband you are supposed to be on?
