Do you have firewalls or other programs monitoring your connection? These programs can slow downloads.

Please tell me what are you using. a DSL, Broadband, Wi-Fi or Dial-up?

There are many reasons about your speed test results and also depends on speed test program you used. Some speed test program require you to stop any internet activity or any internet browser and some speed tester depends on your download location (required location must be the nearest to your area or country). Another thing is the modem you used.

Try doing this... assuming you are using a Windows computer.

Go to Start -> Run
Type in cmd and press ok
This will bring up the command prompt.

Type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Occasionally something in the DNS cache can get corrupted and slow things down.

Also, if you're going through any kind of router (especially a wireless one) you might want to check that. If you're using a wired router, try swapping out the cable. Believe it or not, the cable you use does have an effect on the speed of the data.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner... the internet finally just quit working yesterday... I did all of the things listed though... it didn't work.
the ISP was just having trouble it's going up to speed today I just took a speed test and got 200kbps. which is what i should be getting.
Thanks for the help guys.
I don't have a router or anything in that sort... I have 1.5MB cable.
