connection question - 06/30/02 11:38 PM

I was just wondering.... lets say u connected at 26.4 Kbps (like me, ha), woudln't your average download speed be 2.64 or sumthing like that. Someone told me it but i've seen my downloads vary so i dunno. [Shit] [?]

Well you have to factor many things in. It won't always be 2.64kbps. I connect at 28k ;o\ and it changes all the time. It depends how fast the connection you're downloading from is. For me it can be from 2kbps to just a little over 3kbps. THat's all the info I can give you.
