Default Internet speeds...

Basically I feel that my internet is really quite slow... I did a speed check on speedtest.net, and my average download speed was 130 kbs... This is quite poor I'm assuming? Is there any ways I can improve this...?

Stop downloading porn?

On a serious note is it just the 1 comp running or is it multiple if its the latter you will be sharing the conection so only getting some of the high speed.

Other than that speak to your provider

contention rates ftl,
your speed will drop as it gets to peak time, however run a spybot check and see if any other programs are running in the background hogging your connection

Don't get your bits mixed up with your bytes guys.

Remember, there are 8 bits in a byte. The big rip is that ISP advertise their packages as such: "Up to 8 meg broadband..." But, this isn't 8 megabytes / 8mb, this is actually 8 megabits - BIG difference.

8 megabit = 1,024 kilobyte (1024KB/s) (8192kb/s speedtest.net's default is kb/s therefore your download is at 13KB/s which would be an advertised speed of... 0.1 "meg". If you can get another PC on your network, or on the modem you use, see if speed improves if not give the ISP a bell.

(8 megabit what your inet connection (if on ADSL) will be advertised to e.g "up to 8meg" (although you will never get this, around 6.9megabit tops, 4 megabit is more likely if not less)

8 megabyte = 8,192 kilobyte
