my router is rated upto 11mpbs what is the realitic max broadband speed?

depends on your Account with your ISP and BT line quality

There are only a handful of suppliers who offer speeds in excess of 8 Meg.

Just curious, is 11 Mbps not the maximum wireless speed?

Wireless goes to half of Ethernet Speed

Wireless goes to half of Ethernet Speed.

8 meg will be as high as you can go on a BT line at the moment. though you will not get nothing like that

Not sure what you mean by this? I can get 12 Meg over wireless using my LLU connection, same as using ethernet.

If you are lucky you will receive one eight of the connection speed. If you can get 20Mb broadband you can download at 2.5m/ps. So your standard B connection can download at around a 10Mbps connection giving you a download rate of just over one meg per second.

If people would only get the units they use for speed correct, then the posts would be more comprehensible and convey some information. Please!

Mbps = Megabits per second - also Mb/s can be used

MBps = MegaBytes per second - also MB/s can be used

mbps = nothing (though it might infer Megabits per second

m/ps = nothing at all

meg per second = nothing at all

note -

M = Mega = million

m = milli = thousandth

Nit picking?

" If you are lucky you will receive one eight of the connection speed. If you can get 20Mb broadband you can download at 2.5m/ps. So your standard B connection can download at around a 10Mbps connection giving you a download rate of just over one meg per second."

Please excuse my errors in my haste to post.

Though every one know what a 10meg connection is and if you can download at a meg a second.

I know what you mean but to say you only get an eighth of your connection speed is misleading. A 20 Mb connection can download at a theorectical maximum of 2.5MB/s. This could also be displayed as 20000 Kb/s depending on the speedtester.

I've just performed a speed test, results as follows -

13651 Kbps
which is around 1.67 MB/s
including overheads

So in other words almost 14 Mb.

"If you can get 20Mbps broadband you can download at 2.5Mbps."

That is simply not so.

A 20Mbps connection downloads at 20Mbps (or a little lower in practice.)

That's equivalent to about 2.5MBps (NOT 2.5Mbps)
