Wouldn't downloading a file and seeing the speed that it comes down at be a better guide? Unless the site you're getting the file from strangles it's speeds, of course.

Just wonderin'...

Single thread download tests aren't that accurate I have been told.

I tend to use FlashGet, which has multiple threads. :)

I'm still waiting for my 'up to 52M' from BT.  Seems that they have work to do outside the house
I jumped off a bridge in Paris.

They told me I was in seine

Just changed over to the new deal £9 cheaper, no change in speed though.

We're supposed to be getting 180 Mbps. :sigh:

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

That site is no longer valid for decent tests. It gives me half speeds  (100/10).

This one gives me 212/18 which is what I pay for.
