Re: Slow download speed

Re: Slow download speed

Ohkay so found out what's wrong...aparantly bb put a cap on al it's users data. You get a 1gig per month download "space" after you've used that your download slows down, but will automatically pic up in a month. Thanks for the help guys apreciate it!

Re: Slow download speed

Downloads via my native browser (bb browser) is between 30-118 kps but if try download the same file on opera or uc browser its 1kps.

A few months back my friend whose on contract his downloads where slow and mine was fine on either browser but its the opposite now. We both are on mtn but I'm on prepaid. His downloads are fast no matter what browser he uses. When he tried my sim in his phone downloads were slow after replacing his sim his downloads were slow again.

Re: Slow download speed

I usually delete internet browsing service 2 from my service books. Previously it should resolve slow downloads and browsing time outs.
