    I'm on up to 8meg with Eclipse. I was on Eclipse at home in London but the service was so bad that I'm in the process of switching to Be. Hopefully it will be sorted by the time I get back for Easter

    The London one is a joke in the evenings.

    The test doesn't run at all. It hangs at the stage of "Testing Ping"...

    On Bulldog 16mb - but it only connects at 12mb.

    Ping and upload are rather impressive, I'm surprised.

    now that is the same as what I got before, the first test I did was at a time when tinternet was good, and this one is when it is bad. I just tried to connect to few cod2 servers but I just ping out after 5 secs.

    What is going on?

    I've had a lot quicker, it appears to be high contention unforunately, as it syncs at 7.5mbit, and usually runs about 6.5mbit

    Upload looking pretty good though

    Would be helpful if people posted what connection they are supposed to be on, eg myself:

    8mb BT Yahoo ADSLMax - syncs 7.5, runs 6.5 off peak, 2mb peak

    Edit - and according to the BT Speed Tester:

    Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
    IP profile for your line is - 7150 kbps
    DSL connection rate: 448 kbps(UP-STREAM) 8128 kbps(DOWN-STREAM)
    Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 5579 kbps

    This is a bit better, now the kiddies in the area have gone to bed



    and the previous result (at peak times) for reference:



    Interesting that upload speed hasn't changed, purely download (which suggests its not the likes of BitTorrent that is affecting the contention)
