      The upload looks really nice, shame about the download. At least you have it now though. No doubt there will be a lot of others clambering to get their connections upgraded as soon as Sky confirm that this can be done.

      The ping is exceptionally good though, especially as you were pinging the London server from Yorkshire.

      lol - no problem. It was the upload that gave it away.

      Here's his speed test w/o having to link to the site separately:

      I wonder if you have the same issue as those on SFU getting 25Mb/s?

      Nice to see the figures at last though. Hopefully those on BT Infinity 2 will finally stop showing off and rubbing it in too

      Lets's see some proper testing - download a file from Microsoft.com

      none of this silly speedtesting business!

      Go to the BT speedtester. That will tell you your connection speed. Then go download a linux distro, i tend to find that these are the best for gauging the throughput speed.
