Random slow downloads

Hey, When downloading i used to get 56.7 kb/sec but now on nearly all websites i get download speeds of 12.3 kb/sec, but whats weirder is that i can do 2 or 3 downloads and they stay at that speed, what would be causing it to download so slow on the 512 connection, its been like this since late june.

Edit: oh yea i forgot to mention that i can play world of warcraft and battlefield 2 at normal speeds without lag

Hi,

Have you tried running any speedtests?

Try the one on our portal (under connection settings) and also the BT Speedtester

http://usertools.plus.net/tutorials/id/27

this will help to identify what's causing the slow speed.
