My speed seems particularly slow when I first log on Is that normal? Is there anything I can do to improve it?

I tested using above- my download speed was 2520 kbps and the upload was 79kbsp.
I have no idea what that means - can you help?

"what speed are you supposed to get"

Which, as you know, is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string"

What buteman really means is what speed package are you paying for? Up to .........??

Tiscali 5mbs I think. I was going to change my provider earlier this year but when I contacted them they improved my package (or so they said). Should I move to virgin?
