Broadband speeds?

A question that is often asked by potential broadband conscripts is the speed of various ISP's. Don't know about cable or sattelite, but as I understand it, if you get it down a BT landline then it is the BT exchange that is your first port of call (portal, ged it!). Does what happens after that affect the speed?

Gosh, I don't even remember posting this thread! The speeds you are quoting are not the actual speeds you are getting, they are from the program.

You should start your own subject to get help on USB, nobody reads the rubbish I write!

I do because it's usually funny.

PS. You've developed a tick since then!
