I take it 2mbps is 2Mb or there abouts.Thats what I am on with Virgin.My upload speed is only 191kbps.So with that speed test that I sent you you should get a download speed of about 1970Kbps.

i run it a few times always comes up the same average 240 upload anyway the d/load is good im with virgin as well i always get around the 2mps so gettin what i pay for its the upload i dont understand or is it one of these obvious things and its just goin over my head

If you are getting a 240kbps upload you are getting a lot more than me.I usually get about 190 kbps.So I would say you are doing Ok.And getting what you have paid for.

An upload speed of 240-242kbps on a 2MB connection is actually excellent...:-)

It is represented by your 0.2 figure (it's normally rounded up) or down).
