      He won't get below 60ms on the Birmingham server that he originally tested it on? Well, here's mine off a shoddy wireless connection and also four times the distance he was from the server.








      I'm sure your disconnection issue could have been sorted pretty easily, as 99% of no sync/intermittent sync/slow sync are.


      Just shows how bad you're sky connection is:





      And When i was with Sky, drops happened after 4 months.

      Smooth connection before but after that once they were oversubscribed that was it.

      Terrible experince.

      No one could get it to stop dropping connection, tried everything.

      With a ping of 0 ms you should be getting web pages from the future, can you get the lottery numbers for the next couple of weeks please?

      That's of course if it doesn't break the universe by trying to get them by breaking the laws of physics.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Its most likely 0.4ms <

      My connection is uber fast.


      And just because you're connection is terrible and speedtest proves it dosent mean speedtest is not reliable.

      re: General ADSL discussion

      You really don't have a clue and would be better joining or maybe starting you own cable forum.

      Advice given by users is usually quite knowledgable on this forum, you are bringing down the tone
