Windows 7: What's your Internet Speed?

They have a FTTP trial running on Plusnet who I am with, I am not in an area where it's enabled, but a few of the guys on there are getting some decent speeds. The best result one guy has had was 344meg down and 28meg up.

I thought my connection was fast for downloading games, but 344meg would be insane!

PP21,
Aye that's for sure speeds around now are crazy when you think back a few years. With all these speed increasing I hope BT has all the Node's upto spec and they have put in a good backhaul framework for their network. I think they have as not see many problems but in a few weeks we will see how their Infrastructure will stand up to all the pressure it's going to get.

Hi there
problem isn't the SPEED anymore --it's the CAPS that ISP's are insidiously applying.

Fortunately when I'm in the U.K I use SKY --still Uncapped but if you download or even just PLAY a lot of proper HD quality video (FULL HD) then you eat an insane load of bandwidth very quickly -- and more and more companies are "Capping" connections or applying totally vague criteria such as "Fair Use Policy" -- which is probably just as transparent as a Bank refusing credit based on some totally imponderable data obtained from a credit agency like Experian etc -- the old Soviet KGB was actually quite OPEN in comparison. !!

The thread should perhaps have an offshoot as to where people can still get UNCAPPED monthly quotas.

Cheers
jimbo

Seems about right, it is a 100 mbit/s down, 6 mbit/s up connection, one of the fastest (affordable) here in Germany, where the ISPs don't really understand what upload might be used for.

Since it is over fibreoptic cable, I totally wish for snychronous up- and download but meh....that is too expensive

BT and Sky are 2 ISP's that operate uncapped package's in the UK and since ISP's have had to block access to torrent site's usage here has gone down by a large amount, in fact I was shocked by want bandwidth was being used for P2P torrent sites and that has gone back into the pool. I use around 200Gb per month unless my Son or Grandson appears and then it goes up a lot.

Hi Paul,

Because the ip profile for my line according to BT Speed tester is 77.43. As far as I know it's not possible to get speeds faster than the actual ip profile.

PP21,
I believe that if DLM is working correctly in the New Dslam and your line has low errors and not ali cables and you are not far from the Dslam then DLM will give the best speed it can and that the IP Profile is only set for a safety reason for BT to tell customers that's the faster your line can go. If my understanding is wrong please tell me. In my signiture my average speed for June was higher than my IP Profile setting and it was the same for May.
I think the problem is that there is no speed tester out that give's an actual correct reading.

There hasn't been any drop in demand for p2p after the pirate bay was blocked, as the pirate party opened before it was blocked.

Virgin Media also operate an uncapped policy, but all 3 are subject to fair use policy, that mean once you have downloaded a certain amount over a certain period of time you get your broadband throttled.
