      If you are on Connect, which you appear to be, these speeds are just not possible. Speedtest.net is a waste of space.

      This surely means that my pc is to blame

      What the hell is wrong with it ?

      Connect is upto 8meg so the speedtest site is borked again, it really is poo, I don't know why people use it. Try the Sky User speed test.

      hey bildaman, dont rely too much on speedtest. it depends how far are you.

      how speedtest works:

      point A (bildaman) >>>>>>>signal>>>>>>>>>>>> point Z (speedtest)
      result: slow connection

      point A (bildaman) >>>>>>>>>signal>>>>>>>>> point B (speedtest)
      result: best connection
      the result vary on which server on speedtest.net is open.

      ^^^^^^^^^^
      If it is down to distance how come I get a higher speed from the Paris server than any of the UK or Irish ones? Speedtest.net is rubbish, looks fancy but that is all, it does not give consistently correct results.
