I usually get closer to 8000Kbps at night. Things seem to be a bit swamped right now.

This was tested with a wireless connection. A wired connection could produce different results...

..and what do ya' know, there is a substantial increase in download speed with a wired connection, but upload speed stayed pretty much the same, hmmm. Though I must admit, the wired connection was tested on a much less powerful system than the system with the wireless connection, so that could be a factor I suppose.

Probably getting interference on the channel your wifi is using. Channel 6 is so crowded in my neighborhood (because it's the default on most routers) that I get awful speed using that channel. I switched to channel 9 and everything is fine.

Our town is so small, We have 5 wireless routers in the whole town! I helped them all set them up! We do have a lot of normal fixed cable ADSL routers though!

Again, there is no way that is a residential connection.

And if it is not, it should not count. Last time I checked most work places will not let anyone take advantage of that kind of bandwidth (ie torrenting, downloading, streaming video)...

....broadband you say?

I'm still on dial up! My dad has been holding out for the longest time, we finally get broadband today (the line is activated and so on) and BT didn't deliver the router!!

We call them, and it turns out theres been a logistics error, we wont get one till Wednesday....

Numberzz, we have the same thing basically. I'm getting 20/20 Fios soon so this should go up. It's only 64 a month, too.

Right now I have just regular comcast, it's 45 a month IIRC.

Looked that up and it says that its UKs fastest broadband, and I'm guessing its true. Wow, 56Mbps connection.

20mbit both ways should be sweet when I get it.

On the west coast, what about SureWest, they offer 50mbit lines.
