  astra46 22:04 24 Feb 2003

I have just has my line activated with Pipex brodband.

My download speeds seem slow at 38kb/sec. My friend who is with bt gets up to 60kb/sec.

What speeds should i be getting? Is there a problem with my line, i seem to be getting disconected quite a lot, especially when downloading.

Using a Netherlands based speedtest I currently get download at 50.9 and upload at 27.8 and my connection is via Pipex. As BT is the wholesaler it shouldn't make any difference which provider you're using.

The note on the site mentioned by Topcat I think is in respect of log on problems to web site space by recent registrations.
