i noticed that those of you with braodband are able to check which speed you are actually connected at, I've just had ntl 150k broadband installed, how do i check that its actually connecting at 150k? thanks in advance for any help

i tried to do the test but in the drop down list my speed wasnt there...

Sorry about that, just checked myself and can't see your speed either! Don't know if this will be the same for you, I'm with AOL, If I click on the "Help" on the top of the tool bar, then click on [About AOL] a window will come up giving details of my ISP. Then I click on the Ctrl and Y key, this will give me a reasonably accurate indication of connection speed.

I would think it is the same procedure for NTL, if not someone will be able to help further. Regards. j.

if it hasnt been altered from the 128k one yet why would they tell me that they installed 150k? i'll check my speed first...but i'm sure that i have 150k installed

i used this and it said i was only connected at 62.8 kbps...surely this is incorrect?

Think that suzie005 meens the test program has not yet been altered, and is still showing 128k. The one from dadyassa will give you a reading though. j.
