Why do I download so slow from here?

I've been downloading audio BTs for years from numerous sites at (sometimes) lightning speeds.

For some reason, all the videos I have downloaded or am currently downloading from here go incredibly slow. I don't think I've ever even seen one top 30 KB.... as a result it is taking weeks to finish one video, let alone several.

I know it's not my firewall since all other BTs go at a normal rate.

Any suggestions? Am I overlooking something small and stupid?

Re: Why do I download so slow from here?

Well, it really depends on the seeders connection. I know there is one going on right now that is going *very* slow because the seeder has a slow connection. There is another group that puts DVDs up here and they make sure someone else with a lightening fast connection also has a copy of the show so they can double-seed it and those DVDs go *very* fast.
