      Re: Speed Checker (Beta)

      2816kbps down, 207kbps up. With firewall, AV etc switched off.

      I normally get between 3 - 3.5mb down and 330 - 340kbps up.

      Re: Speed Tester Results

      There is a definite reporting speed problem, if a customer is over 8mb it would appear. Below 8mb (most of the ones reported as similar) all seem to be below this threshold.
