Just had 1GB BB but when I check speed on the computer icons it says 2.2Mbps is this right

Which is the theoretical maximum speed that your modem and/or local exchange can achieve, NOT the actual speed you are achieving.

If by chance you are getting 2Mb, you may find this gets "throttled" back to 1Mb after a week or two. From reading the ADSL Guide forums, it seems this is quite common; it happened to me when upgrading my Pipex connection.
