    Default Downloading?

    Why is it that when I download a file, the download speed starts really high, but dies down to real low by 10 seconds after the download began?

    I'd love to know if there was a way to fix this, it'd be great!

    Yeah, it starts out at 2mbps and dwindles down to 800kbps by the next 5 or 10 seconds, and I'm using Google Chrome, but now using a download accelerator and still does the same thing... why?

    Its normal no? I use Firefox and my speed is 1.7Mbs. When I download something and around like 15 seconds until its about to finish it slows down to 500Kbs. I find it normal. Or is it?

    'Tis normal. I think it's just the way some servers work.

    They likes to bottleneck you so you don't om-nom-nom all their bandwidth.

    if you are on comcast they have speedbost technology. So the first 20 - 50mb downloaded is much faster than your max speed.

    Or you just have crappy internet service cause thats realy slow..
    Or you are downloading from crappy sources...
