Forums - General Discussion - Does anyone know how to make your download speeds faster?

My download speed is 1MB every 17 seconds which works out to about 60/kbps but some peoples speeds are 2MB a second! Apparently my router can handle up to 800/kbps. I use a wireless connection and my computer says the speed is around 58.0mbps and i use homecall broadband so does anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong?

are u sure 60kbps is broadband??? Mine is around 5000 kbps and I thought DSL is around 768kbps. So....either u have really slow broadband or ur computer is really old. Try to defragment ur hard drive!
