    I'm not sure which area this should go under.

    Anyway, I am running vuze and regardless of how many seeders there are I can never seem to get my download rate faster than 180kb. It just stalls and falls back down.

    I have Time Warner Cable in NYC, anyone know if they are limiting my bandwidth?

    Go to www.speedtest.net to see what your actual speeds are. They report in Kb/s or Mb/s, which is Kilobit per second or Megabit per second.
    8Kb = 1KB (KiloByte), 8Mb = 1MB (MegaByte).

    Also have a look at Azureus/Vuze preferences and the help, if you can or have set a download limit.

    I let vuze run its own speed config and it limited me to 300k. i've never come close to it.

    1.47Mb/s = 183.75KB/s

    So 180KB/s seems logical, your ISP can't provide more or you aren't paying for more

    Ahh you're right. I just went to download iTunes and its typically way faster coming from apple but something has happened and they've limited my speed.

    Thank you.
