      speed increased?

      Ive just run a speed test and seem to have got a very good result for once. Im on connect and should be on 8mb but the test shows a bit higher than that. Do you think something has changed as this speed is not normal for my internet?




      It did settle down to 11000kb/s but peaked at 32000kb/s.

      At first I thought you were joking but then I realised you're probably not.

      Your speedtest result is not so much "very good" as actually impossible. Take your pick from:
      • You can't get 32meg throughput on an up to 8meg sync connection
      • Sky doesn't offer a product with that speed, because,
      • Single line ADSL can't run that fast


      Sorry to disappoint you but the speedtester is obviously playing up.

      there seems to be a bug with speed.io. I ran a test which gave me 7meg a sec, when I re-ran it it gave me 14 then 21.

      Looks like there is an issue when you run it again rather than go back into the site.

      Shame, i would'nt mind 30 meg broadband. Speedtest.net is showing around 6 meg, probably why my pages and files are downloading a bit quicker than usual.
