Hey,

I was just wondering why don't we all name our ISP e.g. AOL, Speed of service e.g. 512K, type of service e.g. Cable and then do a speed test to actually carry out the test and post the results here. To make it fair I will list some sites from around the globe so that everyone gets accurate results..

For the UK & Europe:
http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp

For users outside of UK & Europe this test is good as you can select your location from a drop down list after selecting your type of internet connection.
http://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/

Note, UK and European users can use either speed test

My Results
Downstream: 470 Kbps (58.8 KB/sec)
Upstream: 245 Kbps (30.6 KB/sec)

ISP
Pipex Internet
http://www.pipex.net

Speed of Service
512K

Type of Internet
ADSL

Regards,

Chris

ISP: Free (www.free.fr)

Your test gives 2.7 Megabits/s, which is true. But I should have 5 Mbits/s. Damned.
Upload: up to 1 Mbits/s

Metronet http://www.metronet.co.uk ADSL 512 Pay as you go service

From Adslguide
Downstream 470 Kbps (58.8 KB/sec)
Upstream 246 Kbps (30.8 KB/sec)

Note that the speeds you get depend on more than your ISP. Your exchange will also be a factor if it is overloaded and your route to the ISP and then to the website you do the speed test on will vary between users.

The only slowdown I've noticed is when using servers that are heavily loaded. IE downloading Half Life 2 the day it came out! Man those STEAM servers must have been working overtime  Big grin hehe

Ok can anyone help me here with some advice.

I just got ADSL hooked up today, 512kbps.

I am downloading a few files such as modzilla from download.com and a few others from some other sites, and the fastest speed I have got today was 20kbps.

I am downloading a file at the moment at 2.14kbps. No actually its 1.4 now.

Can someone tell me what I should be expecting when downloading files with this connection, and also if theres anything wrong with these figures!?

I went to the test sites above, and downloaded the DR things already, but no difference.

Thanks!
