    390Mbps down, 20Mbps up.

    As part of of a package with TV and phone line for £100 a month. I don't consider it too bad. Especially as work give me £40 a month to cover broadband at home.

    Pester the crap out of your provider. Will take many calls but eventually, at least in my case, but up to 15 from similar speeds. In the meantime, they'd also cut the cost because they didn't supply their minimum.

    No, no and no.
    Long story, won't go into it as I'm sure everyone's bored of hearing about it, but BT rule this area and that's all there is to it.

    Pay £55 a month for Virgin Media Vivid 350 + some TV channels. Receive roughly 387 down and 21 up. Completely uncontended too, as I'm on a brand new rack, on my own, in the cabinet. The install engineer was a legend

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    I get a decent speed to 50 meg with bt infinity and am unmatched when it comes to ping so I'm happy.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    1.8mbit down, 0.6mbit up, ~35ms avg ping. I believe it's around £30 all in with line rental. All things considered the value isn't godawful but technical limitations make it hard to call this a "steal".

    Yeah, you see the issue here is that you're assuming that it is *possible* to do better but the provider is doing a bad job. In my area, doing better than 2mbit is currently somewhere between voodoo magic and a physical impossibility. There aren't even enough connected customers to convince anyone to care about this ADSL exchange.

    Jeez. Are you sure you didn't swap these values by accident? Don't get me wrong, I have seen the bottom of the barrel (and for those interested, it looks like this) but to me a result of less than 30KB/s down is certainly a fault. I live beyond the 63.5 DB attenuation point and still reliably do better than that on downstream. What's the situation?

    No, you're right.
    0.7M down, 0.2 up.
    Will edit.

    However, we've actually had 0k down showing before.
    We also lose service regularly.
