Re Mat Alans advice. I agree entirely but would like to let you know that I used his recommended one speedtest.net and got a DL speed of 13mbs. Very happy about that but I'm on Max ADSL with a theoretical limit of 8mbs! As he said, you cant believe any of them - too many variables involved, but I find thinkbroadband.com to be fairly consistent.

But if you have a BT line with ADSL then you can run the BT speedtester click here which is what they will tell you to do if you think you have a problem.

Sorry, last link is for Plusnet customers, click here is a link to show anyone with a BT line on ADSL how to run the test.

Interesting Ditch999 i have used that prog many times (just for something to do) from all points of the compass and always found it to be fairly accurate against any other test i have done...

not a great fan of speed tests they are mostly going to tell you what you don't really want to know...
