    The maximum download speed should be about 64 kbps.

    Default Download speed for 512 kbps?

    I have a 512 kbps unlimited Hathway connection.

    The speed I'm getting is

    Download : 124 kb/s
    Upload : 61 kb/s

    (speedtest.net/result/383354276.png)

    They simply block the upload speed. This definitely bring down the overall surfing speed.

    Is it expected from people to use internet connection only for downloads?

    Why don't they behave rationally? Both, Download & Upload speed must be uniform (if not the same).

    Hathway uses shared connection.
    so more concurrent user = less bandwidth per user

    Sorry but couldnt help noticing this in an earlier post in the same thread. They are not blocking the upload speeds. Most of the ISPs in India operate in such manner. The downstream speed will always be greater than the upstream speed. Because unless u are running some sort of server service, u dont need high upload speeds.

    i don't think thats the case friend, coz i never faced slow down in my download speeds via. rapidshare or any HTTP sites, via. torrents it's(speed) related on many factors but i do get speeds above 55kbps on a good one.
    but i have to agree, speeds after 11 PM do get a bit suppressed and that i don't know why but still i get 50+ speed on torrents. one thing i have noticed that ping at night is on higher sides sometimes(around 30-40) and at day time is usually around 25-28.
