I’m interested in upgrading my internet connection from 512kb/64kb to the 1.5mb/384k. I don’t mind paying the extra money, but will I get faster download and upload speeds off of the internet. I seem to have a problem when I use Kazaa.com. If I’m only downloading it is great, but as soon as someone starts uploading, my download speeds start crashing(from 10-20kb/s to 0.2-4kb/s) I’m not downloading more than 40-50kb/s at anytime, but as soon as I start uploading to someone. I’m lucky to get 20kb/s with an upload speed of only 2-5kb/s.
I won’t block their upload as that would be unfair in my mind. I just want to know:
Is the upgrade worth it, or might it be my local server?
Could it be a problem with my computer? My computer has a 1600mhz AMD processor, so I don’t think that would be the problem. It might be my settings, but I don’t think it is that either.
Thanks for your time
