Hi i am not known,

The speed of your downloads is influenced by several factors, one of them being the speed offered by the site yoiu connect to. The problem may not be at your end. It is also common for servers to offer certain download speeds at an average. This means there will be times of the day when the speed they offer is what you might expect and other high-traffic times when they can't keep up. Try downloading at different times of the day. Also, you might call bigpond and ask them why there are these discrepancies?

Right. The speed you can download at depends not only on your capabilities (which you should be able to verify with your Internet Provider), but on those of the website you're downloading from. Also, some of the newer security suites can be bulky and scan everything. One suggestion made here was to download anything you want to a certain folder, and then, before you open it ( or install it, play it, or unzip it), do an individual scan of the downloaded file after you've downloaded it but before you've opened it. This generally takes a very short time.

Check if your download speed is different at different times of the day.
