I have got a new pace net connection 1 mbps broadband. At starting its giving me some freaky 2.3mbps download on this same plan for about 8 hrs. and after that it got back around 100 kbps download and i know that is all normal. But at the same time when it is giving me 100 kbps on download, the upload speed was around 1 mbps.
