      Speed Test

      Any views on which speed test is the most reliable? I used to use Dan Elwell's, but since being connected to Sky Broadband the download speed test doesn't work.

      I prefer this one http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/

      I find it a lot more accurate when I need a rough idea how the connection is doing but a good ftp site is the best indicator for a more accurate speed test try this one

      ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/edunfs/mirror...4-bootonly.iso

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
