    Check out the speed tests and tweaks and www.broadbandreports.com. If you don't think you're getting what you're paying for, post in a forum (preferably one relevant to your provider) and the techs who tend to volunteer their time will probably help you out.

      Trying to get more than what is advertised is illegal. The only real option is to pay more for a faster connection. Most cable providers beat T1's on the download, what would you need more for?

            Heh. Gone are the days where IM clients are used only for text communications.

              Check and try the tweak test inside the Broadbandreports.com link already given. I jumped from 1600/270 to 2700/350 with the tweaks provided.

              Good luck, lots of interresting stuff at that site.

                    It would be so much easier just to run an FTP server on your PC.

                          Yea, but it's easier to monitor and would have less overhead.

                          ISPs specifically give you less upload because they don't want you hosting services (like the quasi FTP you and your friend are doing). T1's offer 1.5 Mb/s up and down, that's why they're around $500 US a month (that and they're based off older tech).

                          Also notice that most ISPs give out dynamic IPs rather than Static ones. Once again, they don't want you hosting a bunch of crap.

                            40k is not bad upload at all...but what have you brought?

                              I had my 512k upgraded to 1mb (Blueyonder) f.o.c and now my download speed reaches 128kbps, unfortunately upload is still limited to 16kbps.

                              They are virtually encouraging me to leech because at that upload speed I am not likely to share a lot of files!
