Funny, last night on 2mb NTL broadband I was getting almost identical results to Cookee-yet today I'm getting this:-


It's surprising how much difference daytime usage makes.

Andy,

Your router/modem will also have a home page that will show actual download and upload speeds.

Aaah . . for the days of the 1200 baud modem with no error correction!

That's around 200 times slower than a 2Mb connection. Mind you, 20 years ago a whole green-screen full was 2000 characters, so still only took a couple of seconds for a new screen! A modern web page of around 50K would take 40s+ to load.

I remember Micronet, 75 one way and 1200 the other. It worked fine. The days before Microsoft bloatware.
