    142142 * __Why is I2P so slow?__
    143143
    144    * There are several reasons for this, not least the overheads placed on network communication by end-to-end encryption. That said, the main reason that I2P is perceived to be slow is the nature of the network itself.. since I2P relies on your upload speeds, or upstream in order to provide service to other users on the network, and the majority of users are running from domestic adsl/cable services, the speed of service is limited this way. For example, a user with an 8Mbit connection to the network may well only have 256Kb/s upstream; it is the upstream value that determines the speed a given user can offer to the network.
