broadband speed

  TheJam 07:07 10 May 2007

i am contemplating an offer from my cable company,of going from 2meg broadband to 8 meg
my question is
will that make much difference to web pages loading speed?
or is more to do with downloading speed?
thanks in advance

Hi, I believe it is more to do with downloading speed, though I would guess that pages might load a little quicker. I am also on 2meg.

You won't notice much, if any, difference with general surfing but downloads will be up to three times or so faster.

You may well find your new speed may not be 8meg but UP TO 8 meg - read the T & C carefully!
