    That one of my downloads on Kazaa was going super fast the whole time but the rest never go that fast?

    I know that is has to do with ISP's and connection speed, but 457 kb/s? I usually never see over 200 kb/s form the fastest users? What kind of connection would that person have?

    you can only download from another user at the speed they can send it. if you catch a file from someone on dial up, you may get 1, 2 k a second. if you catch a user on a t1, you may get 200....and if you are lucky enough to catch more than 1 user for the same file, all on higher speed connections....you will get super fast downloads if your connection can handle it.

    pretty much, when you are sucking files off someone else, you can only recieve as fast as they can push....doesn't matter how fast your connection might be.
    obviously a 56 k connection can't keep up with a T1 line....meaning if you are on 56 k, and they are pushing with a t1 you won't have super fast stuff on a modem either.
