BASICLY devide your connection by 10 and you will get your average download rate depending on the source... this is simply because the inital connection is the fastest posible speed of your connection but it cant be maintained during connection thats why it fluctuates from higher and lower...
56k = 5 - 6kbs max
128k = 12 - 14kbs max
256k = 25 - 30kbs max
512k = 51 - 60kbs max
and so on
as you can see the range for the max increases dew to the speed differnces and it continues to increase.
Many people now the truth but few people understand it!
Are you one of the many?
