Hello All,

My download speed puzzles me.

When I download the itunes software the speed is around 350 KB/S. When I try downloading anything else (e.g. from filehippo.com, ifile.it, EVEN FROM YOUTUBE) the download speed never goes over 50 KB/S.

If there were any problems with my internet connection, hardware or software I wouldn't be able to download at 350 KB/S at all ...

Does anyone have a clue?

Thank you very much in Advance.

Are you sure that's an UPPERcase "B" in the "350 KB/S"? ("B" means Bytes and lowercase "b" means bits).

Since there are 8 bits in a byte, the speed of "350 Kb/s" would be the same as 43.75 KB/S.

The Veyron (lovely).

I've intentionally capitalized it.

The problem persists.
