Actually, from what your ISP sets you at you really can't do anything about it. There are alot of BS programs out there but the only effective thing to do is to pay for a higher speed.

depends on several factors. if you haven't maxed out your connection and the server you are downloading from supports resume you can use a download manager to split the file into several pieces downloading them simultaneously. I recommend Free Download Manager - absolutely free download accelerator and manager


this works because some servers will limit the speed you can attain per connection instead of per IP address

Do a test to see what your current download and upload speeds are.

If you're on wireless, look at buying a decent router. A good one should cost around 150 GBP. Dunno what that is in dollars, sorry.

Try the google web accelorator, it works by using googles servers i think, i've had it a month or so. It saves time loading web pages. So far i've saved 34.8 minutes. Not bad.
