      Bit of Fun: Lowest Speed?

      Hi All,

      Just a little fun amongst the dissapointments!

      Whats the lowest speed you've had on the BT speed check? ( http://www.btopenworld.com/speedtest )

      I'm pretty sure i've managed to clock up a slowest of the slow 673 bytes/second!!

      You're lucky. I can only dream of speeds like that!

      Just kidding, the lowest I have seen is 8kbps. Actually I see this regularly.

      I've managed 34kbs today, so I'm off!

      Just called the freephone number and spoke to a nice Scottish lass. I have to confirm my cancellation in writing and await their contact. I was told they will collect the modem and bits "eventually". So back to dialup (the quicker option). Bye all and good luck!
