Hi folks,I've noticed that my download speed has seemed a bit slow of late.I'm on 2mb.I've just done a speed test and it's showing 1970kbps.Is this correct?Thanks.

Almost spot on!

I take it that you are with Virgin.There was a few problems with them last week ,But looks as though they got it sorted now,Your speed is spot on or as near as possible.

All broadband uses some of the bandwidth to manage the connection, so you will never get the full stated speed, even if you are on VM cable. This is made worse by the issue of distance from the exchange for non-cable users (covered by the forum elsewhere in depth)

Your figure of 1970kbps for a 2mb service is excellent.
