Why is Free Download Manager downloading files so slowly?

Recommended Posts

Didn't it say that it would download as fast as in like a minute or so? How come the speed here is so slow? (Some fields in the image have been covered for privacy)

Download speed depends by your ISP bandwith and the servers bandwith from which you are downloading the file.

As an example, if you have got 640kbit/s of downstream bandwidth from your ISP, your max download speed will be 80kB/s... But if server(s) bandwith (from which you are downloading the file) is 640kbit/s, you'll receive max 80kB/s, even if you have got 1Gbit/s (max download speed 128MB/s).

You can check your ISP bandwidth through any speedtest website present on the WWW, like as an example http://speedtest.net

You can check the max download speed of a server simply downloading a file directly from that server.

Anyway, if that server bandwidth is 80kB/s, and the file you are searching for is present only on that server, you can't in any way increase its speed.
