In case I misunderstood your question 512KB is 512 kilobytes per second 2.2mbs ( Megabytes per second) Which is 4 times faster than the spped you are paying for. Check your ISP home page in "My Account" or similar.It will tell you which service you are contracted for.
I am with Pipex and my account is solo 500. They were going to upgrade me to 1MB but they informed me my line would not be able to accept the higher speed and therefore reduced my monthly payment.
dan11 this is the reading from your link, as I am not up to date on speeds etc could you explain what speed this would indicate? Thu, 05 May 2005 09:48:13 GMT 1st 128K took 2053 ms = 63844 Bytes/sec = approx 531 kbits/sec 2nd 128K took 1182 ms = 110890 Bytes/sec = approx 923 kbits/sec 3rd 128K took 991 ms = 132262 Bytes/sec = approx 1100 kbits/sec 4th 128K took 1162 ms = 112799 Bytes/sec = approx 938 kbits/sec
Thanks woodchip, can I take it though that my BB connection speed is now 2MB?
Awfully sorry for the ignorance here, it is just Pipex told me i couldn't be upgraded because BT said my line was not suitable. On checking with BT they said my line would maybe take 2meg, only to find out I would have to leave Pipex and sign with BT before this could be confirmed. Anyhow I have been batted in between these two giants for weeks now with no real answers. This is a condensed version of 4 weeks of emails etc
