    I used to have a fantastic connection ( BT 21CN Trial - 10 Meg down , 2 Meg up ) but alas the trial finished and I'm back to regular RADSL - fastest I've seen from it is about 1.3 meg



    loving that site though - its prettier than a pretty thing innit

    Dont know if its because its a sunday or because I'm on the end of a 15m phone extension, but thats a worringly high latency, and I'm supposed to be on an 8meg connection with BT , up for renewal in april so I might just change.

    I am so annoyed with my speed now. I have just been to Skys site to have a look at pricing

    "Sky's Broadband Network is yet to reach your area. Still you can get Sky Broadband Connect now for just £17 a month."
