      what kind of speeds do you get? and do they stay consistent throughout the day or near enough

      problem is my line can support uptp 8mb so that is a waste of alot of speed there, but as long as i would get 5mb plus i wouldnt mind

      Am on an 8meg line and i max out at between 5-6meg, it does drop during busy periods but nothing to the extend of sky, i think the lowest i have ever had is about 4.5meg, you will require to go threw a training period obviously, and you will need to supply your own ADSL equipment because its only 1 month contract, but they have a store and you can ask them to preset it all up for you i believe.

      ADSL24 - Welcome Join there forum and ask as many questions as you need to before you join, however i would suggest waiting a week or so for the new packages to come! ill post speedtests this evening if you want?

      Ill get you a BT official speed test when i get home around 7pm

      there due to offer new packages on a different network from augest, but there old service will still be available

      New Packages:

      All prices include VAT and the office ones are also showin exc. VAT in ()'s !

      Ok. Below we have the first set of prices we have been able to arrange with our new supplier. The pacakges are not final, but we think we've done as best we can on these prices considering you can use it any time of day/night without having to wait, or be throttled/marked with the ALT etc.

      Home 50 - 19.99
      Home 70 - 22.99
      Home 90 - 26.99
      Home 120 - 30.99
      Home 180 - 39.99

      Office 25 - 21.99 (19.12 exc VAT)
      Office 50 - 24.99 (21.73 exc VAT)
      Office 70 - 27.99 (24.34 exc VAT)
      Office 100 - 33.99 (29.56 exc VAT)
      Office 135 - 37.99 (33.03 exc VAT)

      As Requested ADSL24 19:25pm

      Your DSL connection rate: 4896 kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP profile for your line is - 4000 kbps
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 3732 kbps

      My IP Profile is a bit up the left lately, internal wiring issues.. my bad
