1. Internet Service Providers (whoever you have your broadband connection with) are more and more limiting your download speeds via torrent to 20 or 30k. This is by design of your ISP and there is nothing much that you can do about and the reason they do it is to prevent people from downloading copyrighted materials.

2. If you have a legitimate reason for using torrent technology to download 1GB+ files often, then contact your ISP about it and tell them you are trying to download legal files of whatever it is you are trying to download and see if they will fix it. Probably not, however. In fact, they probably won't even admit to using sandvine to limit your download speeds. I know for one Comcast is doing this very thing.

Broadband is what kinda way to connect internet

"Broadband" is usually used as a synonym for "high-speed." The FCC, for example, defines "broadband" as a connection speed of at least 25 Mbps. Here are some common broadband connection types in the U.S.:

Originally, broadband meant transmission using multiple frequencies/traffic types. The opposite was baseband, where only one channel of transmission in on a wire. Ethernet, for example, is a baseband transmission. (Ever seen flavors of Ethernet described using 100-BaseTX or 1000-BaseLX? The "Base" is short for "baseband.") But you would really only use broadband in that way if you were having an engineering discussion about transmission technologies.

I have broadband internet connection on my computer. the download speed that it shows is 100mbps; whereas i get only 20mbps. how do i get a higher speed of downloading.

hey , this is always the case.
if it shows 100 mbps does not mean you will get 100mbps download far as i know no internet connection provides 100mbps download speed.

however a little improvement can be made in the speed by optimising your settings .
you may use Modem Booster , download accelerator for this purpose.
if you do lot of downloading download idm(internet download manager).to accelerate your download.

one thing i should add for your knowledge.understand the difference between mbps and MBps.B stands for byte and there are 8 bits in a byte so take a conversion factor of 8.this is a general misconception among people and whilie downloading note that the speed is shown in B and not b.

Please vote if satisfied.

Low connection speed

Hello, the 100Mbps connection is to your router and not to the Internet. that means you can copy with a speed of 100Mbps(theoretically) between computers in YOUR network. You can test your Internet speed on, choose a nearby test point. If you paying for 2mbps and only getting 0.15 I suggest that you contact your Internet Provider because its very low if you paying for 2mbps.
