In other words,

In four times the time of IDM, orbit can only do twice the download size of IDM.

Kind of poor alittle bit.

Wht u see below is a screenshot of both Orbit (top) and IDM (bottom). i started download with IDM and paused after about 7 seconds. Started up orbit and left it to run for more than 30 seconds, at tht point i took the screenshot.

So below,

IDM is paused showing the last speed it was at before i paused (it even got to a steady 180 kb/s until download completed)

Orbit is running (been running for over 30 secs).

Orbit doesn't stand a quarter of a chance with IDM and it would hardly stand half a chance with DAP

I agree with dualcore, IDM is the best download manager.

Try Downloading the Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) It really helps and speed up any programs or files you're downloading, you won't regret you do.

sometimes, your download speed is a function of your download manager speed.

who knows which manager is the fastest pls?

Am using a wireless grid antenna to subscribe to a vsat connection and sometimes especially at night, am the only subscriber on the network. I get average speeds of up to 70-80 KB/s when downloading files.

With Starcomms, you get between 6 to 9 kiloBytes per second on average. Same with Intercellular. Plus Nigeria is way behind when it comes to Internet connections. I don't even want to get started on this.

Multilinks has 'bout 8kbps download speed for sure,

anybody here using starcoms, intercellular, mts or reltel internet should give us details on download speed....

I just recently heard of diskcom or something like that, someone using it said it's DSL and very fast....

Quick answer to this question: I was downloading at 60 KB/s in Apapa!

Yes, I plugged my laptop in my friend's house, and I was downloading at a speed of 50 to 60 KB/s (Kilo Byte)

He is using a very expensive Vsat connection.

Aside: I get an average of 8-9 KB/s on my multilinks, which is good.

Alright! I see. I just went to check it in google. kbps is kilobits per second and not kilobytes per second which is kB/s. Thamks!

Thanks to everyone for the reply.

@Seun, I don't seem to get you. Did u say you are getting 8kbps or 8 kilobytes per second? I mean what's the difference between kbps and kilobytes per second? Are they not the same? I thought "kbps" is just an abbreviation of "kilobytes per second". Anyway, if what you are actually getting is 64kbps, it's kind of manageable at least. Although it is still very slow.

Hey lagerwhenindoubt,

I am not sure the Emperiom networks you referred to is the same as the Emperion networks vsat solution i used when i was at Abeokuta. at a point , I subscribed for dedicated 512 by 128 kbps, got a deal for 1mbps and my Mrtg bandwidth showed i got it. I can remember doing a download at 80kbps(the same kilobyte per second dear seun refered to). Furthermore, countless number of times i did 2 or 3 downloads at 20kilobyte per second concurrently . maybe you were on their shared bandwidth solution.

vsat solutions in Nigeria are not reliable and its difficult to get god speed but its possible to get good speed.

A friend of mine was online with me on yahoo messenger one lovely sunday morning. he was almost "shouting" that he just clocked a finishing speed of more than 300 kbps for a download on his gs telecoms office network. maybe he had the whole network to himself!!

bottom line.....you can get it or rather.. good money can get it

Note: 256kbps means (256 ÷ 8) kilobytes per second, i.e. 32 kilobytes per second.

On my Multilinks Internet connection, my download manager reports speeds of up to 8.5 to 9.0 kilobytes/second during off-peak periods. I usually tell people I have an 8 kilobyte per second (64kbps or 8kB/s) download rate because that's what I get at best.

Most of us in Nigeria are on shared bandwidth, because the truth is that no one of us is going to be able to pay for a 32kbps dedicated satellite link. it would be just too expensive. That's why the NITEL IP Wholesale service is very important.

Your topic is not vague.. i am not IT savvy, but have a VSAT solution by our (usually) leading ISP.

BOTTOM LINE (the rest is story)

I have tried 7 "leading" ISPs in Nigeria, and payed over N180,000 monthly, you will never get beyond 20kbps regardless of the method, Radio, VSAT, Dialup. they claim to give you broadband but you end up with snailway traffic. they collect your monies and charge you per byte of download besides charging you monthly access.

Like all Niajans all I can do is complain and hope Virgin does VSAT or starts providing internet services.

The following suck (in case you are thinking of them)

1: DirectonPC

2: Accelon

3: Siotel

4: Linkserve

5: Hyperia

6: Emperiom Networks

7: HEIRS Technologies

I have used the above for critical work, and though they promise heaven, all i am getting is hell+ more.

I am supposed to be doing 256up/256down on my Dell Desktop. I believe this is meant to be the "quickest" Naija standards. I am paying a huge sum monthly because I use GIS to do my work, unfortunately i never get to do 256kbps. instead I get 10 or 12 at most.

Brother, they may advertise "broadband is real" and tell you stories, you will never get the kind of speeds I arrogantly snubbed while in Nevada for $40 per month. (my dial up is a lot cheaper and faster than my VSAT package in Nigeria.
