This is where people get confused Mb is Mega bits, not bytes and MB is Mega Bytes. Not sure what you used for the speed test but just double check what its reads.

my speed test is around 13 Mb and i get download speeds about the same as yours, so thats good :-)

if u are dl from places like mu u wont get unlimited bandwidth...especially if u dont pay for premium so just deal with it i get around 25 mb on my speed test but only get around 5 mb from my mu premium acc

because thats how internet works if you got 20mb connection you downlaod at 2.0mbp/s so your internet is 15mb so you get 1.5mb/s downlaod speed

You get roughly 10% of what you DL speed is, so thats headon. I have 2MB connection, and dl at 220kbps.

Internet speed is advertised in megabits but most downloaders show your speed as megabytes. A byte is made up of 8 bits therefore the easiest mathematical approach to determine the megabyte speed from a megabit speed is simply to divide by 8.

Example if you have a 16 mbits/sec download speed then your theoretical maximum should be 2 mbytes/sec.

how many connections do you have? I use 7 for a file i go up to 5mbs and thats what i pay for. also it depends on your isp lets say your neighborhood has 5 houses on the same block and all 5 have the same isp your bandwidth is divided between those 5 houses with cable modems. fiber optic internet is directly and individually distributed. i used to work for the company I'm with and its highway robbery what goes on. hope that helps at the bottom you can change the connections..

+rep for a well spoken response! (and what I was going to say)

Indeed. Ideal conditions, which deteriorate based on how many people are using the line (cable) or how far you are from the center (DSL).


Ohh, thanks i thought there was something up with my internet or my settings

Nah take 15 and divide by 8. The result is your jDownloader speed (optimally).

15mbps = 1.5mb/s

^ No.

15 8 = 1.875

In easy to use terms, This is still a perfectly correct answer.

Has everyone forgotten that you also have to deal with others when downloading. MU might have unlimited bandwith for premium users, but that only means you can download as much as you want, not as fast as you can.

yup, thats right i have 15mb on speedtest and downloading only with 1.7

MU actually has a strong connection. For JDownloader, I download 1 at a time, and have a max of 12 connections, and I download at my full potential (I do not have to deal with anyone because FIOS has a fiber line come straight to your house).

Now look at my sig, and you will notice it says 43.10 Mb/s, that is Megabits. When downloading using a browser or JDownloader, you will see the download go from KB(Kilobytes) to MB(Megabytes) after roughly 1024 KB. When you use speed test, you have the option to show in either Megabits or Kilobits, but will not show bytes. In theoretical terms, to find the difference between a bit and a byte, you have to go (number of bits) / 8. Now this isnt so true because if you take my 43.10/8, you get 5.35 MBps, but in some cases, I can get almost 6.

In all, your speedtest may say one thing, but it is all on the bandwidth of everyone using it (take cable for example, they pipe a huge line to each area, so you are "sharing" with everyone else around you)

you have 15Mbit/sec you have to divide for 8----so it's right you dowload less than 2 Mb...ive 7Mbit/sec and jdl works at 700 800kb
