      Whats your download speeds?

      Hi guys, ive just connected to sky broadband and im already at a loss. I was on blueyonder and easily bringing in 6.5Mbps which was on an upto 10mb line. Now im on max with sky which is upto 16mb and my speed tests are only coming in at 4.5Mbps. So the max limit is higher than blueyonder, but im downloading slower noe. Completly bonkers!! Could some people try and download this link and tell me what kind of download speeds you are getting please? ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/mirror/ftp.fr...md64-disc2.iso

      Mine was downloading at around 540Kbps.

      Thanks.

      Re: Whats your download speeds?

      sorry about that, the full url is ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/mirror/ftp.fr...md64-disc2.iso . I know my download speed is very slow so i may end up complaining to Sky and let them sort it out. I checked my local exchange and to drive there its about 4.5km away, so roughly 2-3km away straight line. What sort of speed would you expect someone with that distance to get?
