Hey so I recently got FiOS, great speeds when I download from steam or origin, but if I try to download something off the web I get pretty slow speeds. I've had friends use the same link and get something like 1.9mb/s while I get 180 kb/s. Any idea what I can do? --- PSZ: 2751 1211 6380 CoD:WaW FC: 0860 - 6664 - 9175

If you are trying to download a torrent they might be throttling your connection. I have heard of providers doing that. --- Everything EA contributed to gamers around the world in one youtube clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBoesEFWZnM
I've tried JDownloader but I'll give that one a try too.
I'm certain the problem isn't concerning premium accounts because I've gotten faster speeds on my previous 3/1 connection opposed to my now 57/20.

Have you taken Verizon's speed test? I upgraded FiOS and got horrid speeds. Long story short, after 4 calls they replaced my router (which I asked for in the first place) and everything worked as expected.
Either way, if you call Verizon, they're going to insist you take their speed test. If you have a bunch of devices connected, they're going to say that's the problem. Turn off wireless and plug only one machine into a wired port, then do the speed test. If it's slow, they'll start to take you seriously. --- Cush - Wii Friend Code: 8824 6045 3862 1803
