Re: How fast is my connection?!

It will fluctuate due to the reasons I gave above about server load etc,but you are on a very good connection that is operating at very near the max after overheads that infinity offers.

Re: How fast is my connection?!

How fast is your connection?

 

I'd say Very.

 

Just downloaded the 1GB file from thinkbroadband (as a direct download) linked to above and it took 9m31s so that's less than 20Mbps according to the site.

 

Not bad for a 76Mbps connection (insert sarcastic smiley here). Getting really fed up with the "BT must know there's a problem and will fix it....." excuses as we all know BT won't fix anything if it costs them even a penny. 

 

Ironically I left BT for Sky when BT charged £5/month for w/e and evening calls when Sky were offering them for free.

 

I will be looking at Sky again when I get out of this "rip off" contract extention as by then they wil have a FTTC option.

Have you started your own thread on the problem you have and contacted the mods yet?
