connection bubble not showing correct speed

I have recently upgraded to 2mb from 576Kbps but when I connect to the web my connection bubble that shows my connection speed still shows 576Kbps, any ideas?, thanks

The speed shown in the bubble is not the actual speed you are connected at.

If you want to check the true speed you are getting, go to click here and do their speed test.

It's best to do this test several times throughout the day as connection speeds will vary a bit depending on the traffic.

I know its not my actual connection speed, but you would have thought it would show 2mb.

I wouldn't worry about it. These information balloons are only Windows frippery and, in my view, rarely serve any useful function.
