Broadband Speed

  wids001 11:27 30 Jul 2007


I have just signed up to 2meg cable broadband, but being new to this I'm not too sure if the speed I'm getting is correct.

It varies between 100kps & 220kps.

Does this equate to 2meg?

many thanks

Yes, tops out at 240Kbps

If the speedtest result is in Kbps - Kilobits per second the result is not that good.

Have just checked my speed. Running at 5.8kilobits per second, which is 735 kilobytes per second so you should see approx 245 kilobytes per second for a 2 meg speed which is close to what you are seeing at 220. brundle also states that 240 Kbps is the max you should see.
