    Seriously, how is this possible?

    I go to [PIRACY.mu] on my computer, get an approx 300mb file and it downloads a max of 333 kb/sec.

    On my iPod Touch, same website : [PIRACY.mu] ... i'm around 480 kb/sec ...

    WTF?!?!??

    Sorry to go off-topic, but how are you doing file transfers on your iPod? I didn't know that was possible!

    Use Safari DL plugin (BossPrefs).

    You may have something running in the background of your PC. Also, what browser are you using?

    IF you're talking about premium internet membership, then yes. I have the maximum download speed they provide in my area (16mbps). If you're talking about [PIRACY.mu]... no i don't have premium membership, and i don't tend to buy premium membership.

    The Download plugin isnt an accurate representation of speed, it says so in the release notes. Its probably going at the same speed as your PC, but displays differently. I usually get 300kb/s tops, and on my Ipod it sometimes shows as low as 100kb/s and as high as 500kb/s, yet it completes in the same time.
