I've just upgraded to 2 Meg BB, these are my speed test results, are they any good?

Downstream actual speed 1836 Kbps
True speed (estimated) 1982 Kbps

Upstream actual speed 246 Kbps
True speed (estimated) 265 Kbps

Thanks, Chris.

i will do a test and ten will be able to compare it with you.

They are perfectly fine but will vary from time to time.

When you've tested your speed every day at varying times of the day over a period of, say, 3 months, you'll have a good idea of the averages you can expect.

Until then, a one-off test is meaningless.

Downstream 1921 Kbps (240.1 KB/sec) 2074 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 188 Kbps (23.5 KB/sec) 203 Kbps (inc. overheads)

slightly different to yours but not a million miles away.

in reality, i normally get a 137KB/Sec download and about 24KB/Sec upload so the figures are pretty accurate.

hope this helps
