Network speed problem.... need help

Ok in hawaii I had Cable service for internet use.


My max download speed could never go past 300KBS. If I made 2 downloads from a T-1 it would just split in half.


Now I figured it was just hawaii so when I moved to Southern California ( Chino Hills area) I attempted again to get Broad Band cable service.

I choose ADELPHIA and noticed the exact same problem. The max download I have is 300kbs.

I called my provider up asking if there is anything I can do about it and they said that maybe network traffic etc.... . To me personally I doubt this because its rather odd its like that 24/7 here and in Hawaii.


Now on to my question...

My friend thinks because I have NORTON FIREWALL 2003 and SYSTEM WORKS 2003 that one of my settings might have capped out my connections allowed or max bandwidth .

Could that be possible? If so where would I look to solve this problem? Any other things I can check to help solve this band width issue?

You cable provider caps your max download speed. If you download 2 things at once you will not go over 300Kbps. If you download 4 things at once I am sure that you will only get 75Kbps for each. It is like that with almost every provider. The only way to get faster speeds is by buying a pro service of some kind, if they offer it. Sorry bud.

here is the funny thing

I also have DSL buisnuess service

I pay $80 a month for this.

my Dl is supposed to be 1.5 down and upload is 365 or something.

The most I ever get on downloads is around 180 KBS and uploads around 20 kbs.



Anyone know how much a T-1 provider goes for if the speed is really important to me? I live in the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA area now. So I am willing to pay $ for a T-1 if anyone can recomend me one.

I used Norton nternet eSecurity 2003 and noticed a speed decrease. I believe that it acts like a proxy server, monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic andmaybe be the cause.

Sounds to me like you're confusing bits and bytes. The specification for your connection is 1.5 Mbit/s down, 384 kbit/s up. That will enable you to download in 1500/8 ~= 190 kbyte/s. So 180 kbyte/s is pretty good.
