This is just for a bit of fun, i'm expecting some US members to be in the lead tbh...

You'll need to create an account on www.Speedtest.net first, which i'd assume most of you do already so you can track your results etc. Then join the Speedwave here....

Not sure why i am on there twice?! i only did it the once

 
I'm out of bed and dressed, what more do you want?

I always take life with a grain of salt, ... a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

One more step to enlightenment ... but which way ?

Whos not done this? I thought (assumed) we must have some 50Mb (or even the new 100Mb) Virgin Media Subscribers here?

Also, who is Catmeatchunks?

I have done it. Although waiting for Talktalk to deliver new router and come and setup fibre optics. Catmeatchunks would more than likely be Taffycat

I created an account, joined V_R's test page thingie then done a test which it told me would become part of that page. Hasn't shown though

I created account as floppybootstomp.

Download speed was 10.87, upload 0.98 and ping 25ms.

And that's ADSL 2+. Not good really, I was told I'd get between 12 and 14 d/l speed, Zen say my local exchange is at fault as that's the best the exchange can do. I tend to believe them, Greenwich has always been a problematic exchange with, apparently, archaic equipment.

Anyhow, tried again but still not on 'home page'. Same figures in test but it's on my own results page as 9.25 download speed this time

I give up.
