Hi there, Recently I have been noticing that my PC Download rates have been running slow.
Whenever I want to watch a Video online it has to buffer every 30 seconds or so, It never used to happen before, Also I am having slow download rates, I use Limewire PRO and BitTorrent, Downloads CAN be slow on them, Is there any way to improve this?

P.S: I have a high speed connection.

you should do several speed tests from different servers both close and far from you, at different times of day. one test will only tell you about that instance in time. the internet "network" can vary from minute to minute.i wouldnt take the results to seriously. most likely you will find results that are all over the place or can change rapidly.

A server closest to your location would always be best. Do you know what your rated connection speed is?
