Above give similar results which are in line with download speed of files say from MS.

The difference is that the first group range from 600KBps to 1.5Mbps; wheras the second show between 6.2 and 6.4 Mbps

Your very first link provides consistent and similar readings to that of thinkbroadband.com's speed test.

Certainly they are not slow in my case...:-)

in the second group and put numion in twice, in error.

This seems odd because this has been the case for a few days now.. Prior to that I was getting similar readings as yourself. I am with Orange.

speedtest.net maidenhead shows expected results of 6.4Mbps whilst the London server shows under 1 Mbps.

Weird. Looks like I may have congestion along the way in London and I live in North West London.

I have since found that the speed test sites in first group show correct readings early morning at 6.00 am.

I'll now ark resolved.
