How can you check what Kps the broadband connection is, as I am on 512 but want to up grade and want to know exactly what my connection speed is at the moment??? also when I up grade my ISP (Wanadoo) say I have to pay a £20 fee to cover BT coming out to open up my phone line so it is able to accept the up garde, does this sound true or another way of getting £20 out of another punter
that before your connection speed can be increased a BT engineer has to visit your exchange and make a configuration change to the throttle on your broadband connection. Until this is done the service speed will not increase.
Hi, when on-line you should have a small icon showing in your quick launch bar at bottom right of screen - hover pointer over this icon and it should show speed, but in any case, I don't think you would notice much difference going above 512 -it just 'sounds good'. The slight improvement in speed would only really help if you did a lot of video work; I think:-) About the bt line? sounds a bit dodgy to me.....but I am only an amateur.
