Ok I have to admit, it's better than having your phone line tied up..
But every time I have to download any whopping files the little box that pops up and tells me how my humble (700MHz Zentium SlowPressor) PC is doing it NEVER approaches the 150k I was promised by NTL (closer to the 50k I used to have - or at least that's what my "magic" download pop up tells me).
So I am I just being optimistic? Time to join the REAL world?
Or, and here's the nub, can I work any PC trickery to speed things along?
Will my new (stuck in the post) 2GigaHurts PC be my new found f(r)iend?
click here before getting any accellerators, run the speed test selecting cable/satellite modem test if you are on broadband, try a smaller one for dial up if your tests dont come up to par scroll to the bottom of the page and use the autofix provided you will be surprised, i got an extra 10k on my daughters minimum ntl package.
