I don't know why this happens, but I have a DSL line. Whenever I download anything from Avsim.com I get download speeds of about 130, or more, kb per second. On Flightsim.com, I never get more than 9 or 10 kb per second. I had thought it may have to do with the number of people on FLightsim.com at the same time I am on, but that speed is consistent no matter what time of day or night I am online.
Does anybody know why? I have not been able to figure out why one web site is so fast, and the other is so slow.
