That's not good. Even over an 802.11b wireless connection, you should be getting considerably higher download speeds than that.

I can't complain about my DL, but I wish they would raise the Upload speed.

Those speed tests don't reflect what I've actually been getting. Highest I've seen so far in Newsleecher is 879KB/sec

I'm not at home, but my speeds are always slow on those tests, but seems fine to me when I browse/download/etc.
