Just completed a Internet speed test
and wondered what other members results were Like. I live out in the country and our Internet Provider is a service that is subed by Kent County Council and is a by sight wireless signal and is still faster than the BT fibre as the cabling from the box to the user is a mixture of copper and aluminum and the latter has high loss so many here have only 10mbps.

When I lived in Maidstone I had my bungalow on site of a Kent County Council IT center supplied by Virgin and the download speck was was good in those days at something like 46 Mb/s and I thought that was good and that was 6 years ago

Not that good but I'm told it's my local BT Exchange with it's antiquated equipment that throttles my service. I pay for a faster service but BT manage to put the kibosh on it.

God bless Cameron for his promise to provide 10 MB by 2015.



:mad:
Uh-oh, politics and religion in one sentence :eek:

Cameron's history now which is possibly the only good thing to have come from the result of our recent referendum ;)

Oh dear, I do believe I got a tad political there, my apologies...

Mediocre internet here, as we're quite far from the cabinet. Still, it does me ok :).

Darn it mine has got slower. You'll notice that my internet speed is 92% slower than the rest of the UK. Great result for a citizen of one of the richest countries in the world. :cool:

Doesn't VF use the Openreach network? If so then you shouldn't be limited to just them. :)

Not really up on what is what but there is Superfast/Fibre in the street. Still deciding if I need just broadband or broadband plus tv. Probably will go for fastest broadband as I can get anything I want to watch from the net.
Still looking for deals and they may change before I am ready to sign up. I may be able to get Talk Talk to give me a great deal as I am at the end of my present contract.

Lets face it any speed I can get will be fantastic compared to my present crawl :dance:
