I have switched from ABC to BitComet. So far, I like it better. Download speeds are good. I like the display of stats. It is easier on my eye.

tejizo wrote:Mine is kind of confusing. It falls between 256-384 kbps.
According to www.dslreports.com/stest, it says 317 kbps for the upload speed.
By the way, how do you convert Kbps to kB/s?
My max would probably be something close to 40 kB/s.
Kbps divided by 8 = kB

e.g. 384 / 8 = 48
