    i have noticed lately that when i download 4+gb sized .mkv movies they are very slow to download, be it on cable or dsl. a month or so ago i used to get speeds up to 1mb/s or 1.2mb/s but now i can barely get over 100 kb/s. i am using utorrent, and downloading mainly from btjunkie, demonoid, or torrent damage. even the private torrent sites have been slow for me. even on my neigbors unprotected wifi connection it's slow.

    Not at all.

    I don't use any of the public torrent sites so I'm not sure about those but sites like revTT and HDbits.org have been fine for me
