Got 878 download and 133 upload.
So much for the 2 meg connection we are paying for! Less than half the speed it should be!

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

Since the subject seems to have strayed from Amy's problem, to who's got what speed... anyone else got 20 meg cable..? Wink

God damn Brits and their small ass, relatively easy to completely replace, cable networks... Wink

A friend of mine has just had a 20meg ADSL DUAL line put in! But it costs 300 euros a month (200 pounds)

Virgin Media offer 20mbit cable for the £30-40 price range I think. And obviously cable is much better than ADSL so that 300euro business is very unfortunate.

ADSL goes through your telephone line meaning the speed advertised will often be completely different in reality as it all depends on how far away you are from the telephone exchange. So you can buy 8mbit and easily only get 2mbit.

With cable it doesn't go through your phone line and the speed shouldn't degrade depending on your location.

I'm pretty sure the US has a better broadband infrastructure than us...?

Maybe in some places, like big cities, but not everywhere... Over the entire area of the USA, I would say 5% has broadband? And not necessarily good broadband either... I would love to be corrected if I'm wrong though...

So we have more subscribers... Doesn't mean it's better than 20 meg... I haven't even heard of that around here...
