    when did you signed up for the 1.5k plan? I was on the 1.5k plan and I upgraded recently to a faster plan (at a lower price I was paying) while under contract.

    Singnet keep dropping price one so sometimes the faster plan becomes cheaper than the slower plan signed up a few months back.

    kilobytes (KB) or kilobits (Kb) per second? 1500 is kilobits per second. if you reach 200kilobytes per second (KB/s), it's more than 1500 Kb/s liao.

    But 10-20KB/s is still pretty low. Is it faster for other types of downloads? Bit tornado relied on other users' bandwidth to share files, so the limit could be on other users' too.

    hmm its listed as kB/s so its in kilobits but tats alot of difference wheareas the rare 200kB/s in the early mornings compared with 10-20kB/s (but usually its around 10kB/s only) as always..all my friends use bit tornado without any problems unlike me with this kind of speed... ..

    Hi newbiegrapher , i do not have that problem ... even trying on a 512kbps singnet, it is downloading at 60kilobytes / sec.

    Maybe the site you are surfing is pretty slow ?

    1500kilobits does not mean 1500kb/s...

    it's in actual fact 188kb/s

    Before whinning. I suggest you check your torrent settings ala firewall. Personally, I wouldnt advise using bit tornado. Go for Azureus or Bitcomet. Also, it depends on the torrent tracker you are downloading from. Anyway, change your plan. Get a faster connection if you want to download.

    Maybe you may ask Singnet helpdesk to help you to download ? They may have faster access themselves

    Using maxonline at home, it is pretty slow at times. I feel all the ISP in singapore are about the same , having used Singnet BB and maxonline and magix

    Most likely it is your client. Change another client or download from another site.

    small b is for bits while capital B is for bytes. Singtel 1500 plan is for 1500kbps (kilobits per second).

    yeah thats right. 1 bytes is equal to 8 bits. so if your plan says 1500 kbps .....dividing by 8 gives you 188 kilobytes per second.

    But most should not expect download speed at 188, the bottleneck may not be your local broadband link but at the sending stations or internet providers.

But after i changed to 1500plan, they gave me a wireless modem bundled with the plan and i found out i cant dl stuffs using bitcomet anymore, speed stuck at 0 all the way ...Another of my friend who uses wireless modem also happened to encounter this problem which i also duno y ..

    Starhub is pretty good, my average with them is about 650kbps with occasional jumps up to 1300kbps, and on a bad day its around 200kbps

    although it's shared but it really depends on the block that you are living. If you are lucky, the whole block, maybe less than 30 users. So it depends on your luck too. For my side, I think there is not so many people using it and even if it did it's night time.

    I was using BB with Pacnet......their support was ok but their offers SUCKS big time. Starhub is definately better than Singnet in terms of technical support.
