    A little more information would be helpful.

    First, what internet service plan do you have? As in what is your download speed by what the ISP says.
    If you look at your plan you will see it, make sure to post correctly the capitalization it uses.

    1MB is NOT the same as 1Mb.

    Second, are you over wifi? if so, how far away are you from it?

    yes I am very sorry that I have not mentioned all the things my ISP is BSNL India my plan is of 1 mbps speed with the download speed of around 512 kbps but I am only getting around 40 kbps and also I am on broadband connection. I have contacted them several times but in vain they only increase my download speed for a few days then it again falls down to 40-60 kbps. Can anyone help me out? Well THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!!!

    Well if contacting them about this helps to increase but then falls back down afterwards I would say they are limiting your connection and that you should contact someone more powerful in the ISP to get support. You could also try threatening to disconnect service.
