Hello everyone and good morning. I am currently with virgin media for my broadband service, and below are the specs for my desktop pc, which I purchased in january 2006
Dell Dimension 5150 Pentium 4, with Microsoft Windows XP, Home edition, service pack 3 3.00GHz 2.99GHz, 2.00RAM, 160Gb hard drive. purchased in january 2006, and still runs great.
Okay about 2 weeks ago virgin upgraded me from 2mb to 10mb, and I have tested my speed from 1 of the sites that i oz told on the forums here that their engineers use click here and I got the following: Download speed is 13428kpbs upload speed is 474kbps I just wanted to know HOW what range i now am between 2-10mb, as I dont really know what this equates to and are their any webistes that just show the upload and download speeds of between 2-10mb, instead of all these large figures pls, and also I'd like to know that with the specs of my desktop, can it handle 10mb? i have a wireless router, as i have a PS3 gaming console as well. thanks
okay i have used one of the links that u sent me, I think it woz speedtest, and i got the following download speed 25.75mb/s and upload 0.49mb/s and ping 55ms............i still do not understand how this equates as all i wanna know is to show that my new broadband speed is up to 10mb....and in that format. And also from the specs of my desktop, is it ok to handle up to 10mb??? thanks
Your click here is the speed test that the Virginmedia engineers use and by the looks of things you are getting the full 10Mb Download. When using speed tests it is always best to do it when nothing else is running on the computer.Any thing running and it will affect the speed. Eg. If I use Ladbrokes and then run a speed test my results are normally about half of what they are normally.
