1) They have a faster connection speed than you;

2) Your cousin is lying.

Over here in Australia (shouldn't be different to over there), 512kbps has a max download speed of approx 57kb/s. You cannot get 80kb/s with it. You may be getting slower speeds due to line quality issues. I would take this up with the provider of your phone line.

if you are only getting 40kbps then contact blueyonder tech support.

there might be lots of noise on the cable. also i think your cousin is telling you BS about the 80kbps if he realy is on the 512 speed like you.

They have the same speed connection and same modem and same p2p app to download files, sometimes when using opera i get downloads of around 80kbps but for a short while only

Yes you should get more then that

Theses speeds are saying you have a perfect connection and pretty much live on top of the isp :p

512 - max speed 64kbps - would say most will get 58Kbps

1024 - max speed 125kbps - would say most will get 117kbps
