Windows 7 Ultimate x64

In the rural area I live I get 8MB which is better than 90% of rural areas, mostly 2MB when they are lucky and .512mb when they are not.

We are an internet company with 12 people sharing a 5MB line at the mo! The local exchange (Cumbria) is not LLU and not scheduled for any upgrade according to

After turning down the horrifically over-priced leased-line option from BT (2MB D/L, 1MB U/L = 1,700/yr) I've just purchased a Firebrick with bonding token; I'm going to give bonding multiple lines together a shot! *crosses fingers*

As stated I could only get 1.5Mb in my cave here in the Welsh hills, I was looking into if I'm able to sort out better BB but alas even with all the sheep still had no joy . Then Infinity arrived and away I went. There are a lot of people who still have very very poor BB speed in the UK and the company's say it's to expensive to upgrade, having said that BT I still find it hard to work out why since day 1 of their Fiber roll out they have known that the modems are cheap and nasty and fail continually and yet here we are several years down the line they are still using them.
Hey JerometheGiraff even I would have to stop at that price lol.

My Dad did work for the BT Broadband Business and what they do (This applies for any BB Service) Is they calculate Your Internet use and how much you pay then generate a speed For example 8MB Download and 0.3 MB Upload - Then they place a limiter in the Exchange Box after that they will refresh their service control panel Thing (Can't remember its real name) and then that will set a limiter of about 1MB so At the moment you are gettng 7MB But then the Router shares out that 7MB To all the devices so the conclution is

You pay for 8MB

You Should recieve the full 8MB - But after the Service control panel etc

You get about 7MB which is then shared to multiple devices in your house so Tops about 5MB

This does not include the Factor of How far away you are from an Exchange box

Fibre Optics are slightly different but the above counts for DSL
