    Following DJNafey's excellent article today.....This thread is for testing and sharing your broadband speed.

    Firstly go to this site: http://www.speedtest.net/

    Run the test and then you will see the option to copy the link to post on a forum, then just post yours here! If you wish also share what your supposed to get as quoted from your ISP.

    I'm supposed to be on 20/10 business with BD-DSL since a month, but they really do screw around. I'm just waiting to end this month and move. Any advice from fellow UKers?
    Closest BD exchange to me here is 80 miles away hence my speed lacks massively at times, plus the servers I used were 300 miles away from where I am. That slows everything down. :(

    The test I use and is quite representative for BD customers at least is here: http://speedtest.bulldogdsl.com/lt.html

    Hello,
    Mine is supposed to be 512 download but never has been that much since I got on satellite but, it sure beats Dial up. DSL or cable is not available.

    Download speed 374kb/s
    Upload speed 26kb/s

    Rather than the recommended "local" server I went to Atlanta which I knew was the major BellSouth hub:

    It appears to me that the speed is more dependent on the target server then on your ISP potential.

    Would that be corrrect?

    Yep Jephree - server being contacted makes a notable difference on speed, always, and the biggest is probably how far you are from the nearest exchange. Closer you are, the faster the speeds usually are to the advertised if the line has the potential, is not capped and all your hardware is working well.

    I found that during my break and off-time at work when not running anything work related and we're permitted internet access (certain times), they cap our upload to 489kb/s and download to 6000kb/s. My temporary home line here is also supplied by my employer and runs the same deal. :(

    I have hit 15MB/s-3MB/s before using this same line early morning 4am once before when measuring on another site. A big one off I never see reproduced. Sometimes my download exceeds 25MB/s and many other times it hovers around 5-6MB/s. Upload never exceeds 899KB/s that I've monitored with this line.
