Hi im new to downloading movies... Yesterday i downloaded UTorrent so that i can download movies etc... so i started to download a movie 800MB and it was only downloading at 20kB/s - 50kB/s... which took about 6 hrs or so..
i am using normal broadband. Is this right as i thought it was much quicker ? Thanks

There are two ways……
1. It depends on the seeds and peers that torrent contains.
2. The Speed that your normal broadband carry.
About the Seeds and peers of the torrent…..If a torrent is well seeded and healthy, then u will get almost as much speed as your broadband can carry….but if the torrent is not healthy and low on seeds, then it wont be possible for you to download it with your full speed. It would b slow then. U have mentioned that u saw your average download speed at 30 KB/s. This also depends on the seeds and peers of the torrent. The thing is very simple….if the torrent u have downloaded is well seeded and healthy then the problem is your broadband. U have been downloading that torrent at the speed upto 50 Kb/s ( as u have mentioned ) so thatz obvious that u can get it completed in 6hrs and more only…depending on how much your downloading speed vary. But if the torrent is low on seeds then u can download other torrents that r well seeded, with your full speed.
It would b good to figure out if u would have a speed test and post the report in the forum.U can do a speed test of your broadband here---
