    So I'm trying to download a movie on my iPad. I have seen it download at about 54 Kbps at the highest speed. This seemed exceptionally slow, so I downloaded a speed test app to test my connection speed and it said I should have about 5 Mbps upload and a fast 22 Mbps download. Why is this movie downloading so slow when I have such a high download capability?

    Download speed is your connection and the traffic on the site your are dldg from. If i stream a new released TV show it will be slower as more people are leaching. Look up seed and leach for a full explaintion.

    I'm not downloading a torrent, I'm downloading an MP4 directly.

    I realized there was something of a storm while I was downloading. Retrying today.
