Because we are in Britain
Upload doesn't matter to me, luckily.
I'm just curious, has anyone broken my record yet?
So slow that speedtest can't actually run the test...all the time.
my phone (now pretty much my permanent internet connection, gaming and all)
Just a couple of pages back, there was this:
I seem to recall someone at CERN posting here too...
Edit: they only had ~300Mb/s download. Even I have your upload beaten though
I found this amusing.
O2 internet £13 ish per month / BT line £13 ish per month
Pay £30 per month on Virgin 30m service...
adsl2+ speed on BT in lincolnshire
Virgin just doubled my speeds for free
I want this connection grrrr
BT, as per usual. A damn sight better than TalkTalk, though.
"Up to" 12Mb, so it's a nice sight to see it actually hitting it.
Shame my ping goes to 60+ on wifi upstairs. I need to run an Ethernet cable through to my machine at some point. (This is tested on the downstairs Dell that's plugged straight into the HomeHub3.)
Virgin just doubled my speeds...
Though of late the connection has been a lot more flakey and unreliable....so bad at times I can't even open simple web pages....so bloody annoying....
This was yesterday - usually I get a better ping than this (just re-ran the test using the same server and got a ping of 12) but this is the best download speed I've managed. Best upload is a little higher:
Virgin Media 100mb business fiber connection.
Finally speed back to normal.
Bristol University Resnet, costs £75 for the year (October - June). The speed is supposed to be 50Mb/s symmetric so it's doing better than it's supposed to. It does have a cap of 48gb a week though which exceeding gets you put on a restricted network of about 5Mb/s each way. I'm gonna miss this speed when I move out of halls next year.
EDIT: I'd like to see what I get for streaming though... Can't stream anything without a completely unacceptable amount of buffering.
