I know this question must have been asked times before but is there a site where i can check my BB download/upload speed?

Cheers, Chris.

or.... just try downloading something BIG (EG. the latest drivers for your graphics card). Windows will tell you the download speed as it goes and give you a total dowload time at the end. I think this is a much more accurate real world check. Only my opinion of course.

If my maths are correct your download speed will be 28.96kbps (29 near enough) on average - my best when I had dialup was five to seven kbps so that's about right on 300k BB.

Thanks for that, yes you maths is spot on the download speed is fine, it just made me smile when I saw the upload speed, I wish :-)
