Broadband speeds

Please can anyone tell me how I can be getting two completely differnet speeds. I am with Tiscali and on their speed check it says I am getting 2.18mpbs yet on ADSL I am getting 230.8 and it says it is very low for a 2 mb service while Tiscali say that the one their speed test gives is right, can anyone please explain what they mean thanks

It sounds as if you are quoting upload speed on ADSL and download speed on Tiscali. Try this one it is very clear whhich is which. I am on tiscali 2mb and at the moment I am getting 1955 down ad 253 up

the first is download at 2.18mbs
the other is upload at 230bps
this seems normal for 2mb broadband

Thanks for your help have tried the one you said and it works fine and the speeds are good, but on ADSL they are awful and it is the downstream I am on about not the other, so is there something wrong with Adsl they have always been so good in the past. first thing in the morning I get 1.9965 but later in the day it drops to 238ish so something is not right somewhere with them but happy now I know things are ok so will not bother with it anymore and stick with the one you told me about Many thanks all,
