Unhappy Issue in downloading speed

Hi Team,

I have internet connection with 1MB speed as per my service provider.
When i download anything it should give me speed at least 128KbpS (1024/8=128)

But when i download anything its give me max to max 40kbps.

I have CentOS-6.0 and in that i am facing this issue.
But if i use windows-xp from my virtual box then download speed its near about 111kbps.

I dont know what wrong with my CentOS?

Please help me to resolve this issue.

At what speed does wget do it?
speed depends on other running processes... automatic updates?
Better go for bsnl/mtnl broadband.

Please use the standard abbreviations for bits and bytes (capitalization matters), it's very difficult to figure out what you're saying.

b = bit
B = byte (8 bits)
k = kilo
K = nonsense
m = milli (nonsense in the bit/byte world)
M = mega

1 MB/s = 8 Mb/s
1 Mb/s = 125 kB/s

So do you have a 1MB/s connection or a 1Mb/s connection? Are you downloading at 40kB/s or 40kb/s? I'm assuming from the context of your post that you have a 1Mb/s connection and are downloading at 40kB/s (roughly 30% of your maximum)?

How are you calculating this speed and from what servers are you downloading? Have you done a bandwidth test?
