My Google Chrome download speed is so slow. It's like 16.5 kB/s right now, can you believe it? That's insane. I'm downloading nearly a 900MB file, before I started downloading it, it showed that it'll finish like in a few hours, now the half of it is done and it shows that there's like 7 hours left. What? I really don't want to cancel it or something. Perhaps you could give me some thoughts? I've already checked my Ethernet connection, it seemed okay. Although there's a one thing. In the Task Manager under networking tab the network Utilization's maximum is like 0.30% while downloading, which is really slow. Please, any tips?

Before I tried to start the same (new) download again it didn't work. But now when I started a new download, it worked. Problem solved.

Firstly, it won't be the fault of your browser. Your browser can only download as fast as your internet connection will support. To find out what that is roughly (turn off all internet-based applications apart from your browser first) and run a speed test at http://speedtest.net. If the result seems fine, it'll most likely be the server on the other end that can't transfer the download quick enough. You'll notice that some servers are faster then others.

Ah, I totally forgot about that site. The download speed turned out normal.
