Many of us are having issues of slow internet speed, if we test from PTCL own speed test it gives us good speed, like http://speedtest3.ptcl.net/ but if we check from any independent source like http://speedtest-ptcl.com it gives slow speed.
This is not amazing, in fact when we test from PTCL own speed test, it gives up link speed from Our home to PTCL office where this speed test server is available, but when we go further towoards internet and check speed there it comes to very low. Now when we call that we have 4MB link this dose not mean that only you have 4 MB link, PTCL will divide one Bigger Pipe of bandwidth between many users and all users will share this, Now if any person is downloading any English Indian or any other movie online or downloading it from any torrent, playing online game, watching youtube videos or downloading any software from any site, will be utilizing more bandwidth then a user who is just browsing internet.
There are many downloading softwares like Internet download manager or Orbit etc. which gives more speed while downloading, due to its feature to have multiple session while downloading data from any site. Mean while other internet browsing will slow down.
YOU GUYS ARE REQUESTED TO GIVE YOUR SPEED SAID BY PTCL AND SPEED WHICH YOU ARE GETTING RIGHT NOW.
LIKE IN MY CASE
I HAVE 4MB LINK AND GETTING 3MB SPEED FOR DOWNLOADING AND 512K FOR UPLOADING.
