My Broadband speed

  Hetti 18:13 06 Jun 2009

Im with Virgin media, and they are giving me a free trail of 20mg broadband, I checked speeds and this is what I have download speed is 12912kbps and upload speed is 712kbps would this be abt right for 20mg?

Then my next question is we use three PCs at the same time will the speed have any bearing on how fast each PC works?

We do not download much at all and we wanted to know if it was worth keeping the faster connection just for the benefit of useing three PCs (if there is a benefit that is)at the end of the trail.

I think your download speed is about 10mb.

This is the speed test that the Virgin engineers use.

Remember only use it when you have nothing else running.

I just checked speed with the link you sent it has increased since yesterday the download speed is now 41377kbps, upload 678kbps on my laptop,
however my hubby has had no increase at all on his laptop it is same as yesterday (previous post)
is this normal or should I expect better speeds on all 3 PCs?
Sorry if im a pest but dont want to pay for 20mgs if we are not getting any benefit.
