Yung friend mo is getting a good signal. for an 8MB plan the maximum download could reach to 1Mbps.
Maraming factors din why young file download speed mo doesn't match sa subscribed speed mo.
Pwede mo e traceroute young website na dinadownloadan mo ng file . The file download speed varies from the number of hops from where ang server naka locate. dami ring nag se-seeding sa same file. pedeng your server na dinadowload mo is located sa russia...lol.
At least your getting 80% of the subscribed speed you have a good connection. If your getting less than 80%. tawagan mo na globe
It is P2P kasi.. Baka naman your friend is Using Fiber while you are in VDSL only. May chances na ganito and I wonder if the CAT6 Cables were used by Globe or used by his home network
I prefer going to the nearest Computer hardware show like CD-R King or Octagon and ask for a Cat6 for maximum and optimized performance
