My connection is really fast as far as browsing and P2P downloading is concerned, but normal downloads through Safari, Chrome or any other browser is incredibly slow! 9 Kb/s, compared to the 150 Kb/s I get from browsing and P2P. My iTunes downloads, even on my iPod touch is also just as slow. And regardless of which website I download from, it's always the same extra-slow downloading speed. When I switch to Windows, it's capable of downloading much faster. However, when I run Windows through VMWare Fusion, downloading speed is also slow, so it's obvious it's a problem with how OS X handles the main connection. Graphic-heavy websites load very quickly, but YouTube clips don't. I tried two different Macs, and I tried using Ethernet. The problem did not exist with the older connection. The new connection is a WiMax WLAN broadband connection, opposed to the previous DSL connection. I was told it may be an MDU/MTU problem, but I don't know what that even means.
