    That's Australian Internet for you ;)


    But otherwise, I myself never got the best speeds, Aus to UK never really is the best for downloading.

    My Verizon connection from USA to UK is about 400k down and I am on a 150m line. So I feel your pain.

    Aus to UK will suffer extreme packet loss due to the distance, CuteFTP is a decent program but the speeds shown are not real.

    My DL speed is 60mb/s but my true DL speed (the speed I actually download at) is only 7.2mb/s.

    For every 10mb, you get 1.2mb/s true DL, now going back to my speed, CuteFTP says I download at 13mb/s but I download a 95mb file in just under 2 minutes, if you do the math, that is definitely not right, wether it be the time or speed that's wrong.

    So basically what I'm saying is, look at the time it takes to download a file on Filezilla then compare it to CuteFTP, if it's close then CuteFTP speeds are wrong.

    UPDATE:
    I've found out that the speeds CuteFTP use are Mbps NOT MBps which is what our ISP's use.

    So basically,
    MBps = Megabytes per second
    Mbps = Megabits per second

    So when you download in Filezilla, you are shown MB/s not Mb/s
    2.5 Mb/s = 312.50 KB/s
    7.5 Mb/s = 937.50 KB/s
    30 Mb/s = 3.75 MB/s

    So my speeds are 60 MB/s and 7.2 MB/s
