    So this is how fast the entouch.net speed test was

    I am paying for a 16 Mbps line.

    off a trusted torrent site downloading a VERY popular torrent. i get maxed at 1.8MB/s

    Is this right?? Shouldn't i be getting a tad bit faster downloaded when i could get 1.3 off the 6 Mbps line i had before??

    please tell me i am right so i can have the retard cable company guy out here again. he was here today and said it was fine but didn't even check the cable itself just ran a retard speed test online.

    1.8 megabytes per second = 18 megabits per second. You are getting .2 mebabytes per second more than your plan. :)

    16Mbit = 2MByte

    There are 8 bits to a byte. You are paying for 16Mbit, which is 2Mbyte. I'd say 1.8MByte is close enough for a torrent.

    1 Byte = 8 Bits
    so 1.8MBytes = 14.4Mbits :)

    Check your Port Forwards on router or connect right to the gateway (aka Modem).
