I miss living on campus at the University here and having 100mbps speeds.

There's 50mbps fibre available in Morecambe, but only via Smallworld.

Are you sure you're not getting a false reading because the Gloucester server you're connecting to isn't very good?

turns out the ethernet port i was originally plugged into was the wrong one, no one said there was a specific one, until later. for the record it should be port cigE
its still around 92 and we cant get it too improve.
anyway in about 6 months it goes up to 160mb dl.

Google, never satisfied with the pace of change, plans a test that will provide 50,000 to 500,000 people with fiber-optic broadband Internet access with a network speed of a gigabit per second starting as soon as this year. Now why would anyone want speeds like this. I can think of people that...
