LOL...

I'm with Sky and they are great!

£10 per month for 16Mb download uncapped and I regularly get 15Mb+, especially when connected to a good server.

I was able to download 3.2Gb from one of our company servers in the USA (not on the company network) in 27 minutes recently.

I'm not far from the local BT exchange (about 0.5 mile) too which I think makes a difference.

 8)  I'm going to look into this methinks.   :o   We used to have sky a few years ago, that was before they started doing broadband, and now it's starting to look attractive again.   :beer:

Just run a test after a loyalty upgrade to "up to" 24mbs with talktalk. ( it is 5pm which may slow it!)

I don't have java installed so I can't run the tests. Do I need Java for anything else?

Just run mine which is down the telephone line on AOL.

http://www.speedtest.net/result/1110275495.png

To be honest it varies on time of day and how often I've downloaded/uploaded stuff, as AOL like most ISP's, can slow down your connection. This even happens at 04:00 when I know not many people will be on the system.  :'(

What really upsets me is the upload speed! If you can get 10mb/s download then, all things been equal, it should be the same for uploads. It's the reason I don't bother with Virgin, BT or sky.  >:(

Now, if you think your broadband speed is fast enough then try downloading this picture! http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2011/01/scienceshot-a-trillion-pixel-image.html?ref=hp   :doh:
