On my pc i used to download tons of files at once, on my mac if i download more than 1 at once, one is fast, and the others are horribly slow. The browser is also slow as SNAILS when im downloading something. O and i have Optimum, so can any1 suggest something.

you may need to offer some more information. lots of people here have absolutely no issue with speed. add a few more details, take the expletives down a bit - so you don't attract the wrong sort of attention from the administration, and then maybe we can help you out.

Sorry for the Expletive (Tikked off) um what im saying is if im dowloading two music albums, which on a pc would download at the same speed, on my mac one of them would download fast and the other slow, and when the first one finishes the second one picks up the speed.

What are you using to download (bear the rules in mind please)?

If it's legal music off of bittorrent, you'll need to make sure port forwarding is set up correctly.

If you want both of your downloads to run at the same speed I would try downloading igetter then once its installed when you go to download something right click and select download with i getter
