      there you go. i find that this is a good server to use. another is the massey in france. brilliant ping as well. if you do a ping test through cmd it may even be lower.

      What is FTTC and How Does it Work? | Ley'ing it Out - here's is an interesting read about FTTC VDSL has more frequency space so can support higher speeds.

      VM is still FTTC (a hybrid like Sky, BT Inifinity etc...) not FTTP. VM uses coax back to their street cabs

      Maybe because it it twice as far away as the French server, according to the tester.

      In saying that I have always got better results from the Paris server than any of the UK ones. As I said before, I don't think the French are so keen on doing speedtests as we in UK, so the servers are less busy.
