2nd 128K took 254 ms = 516031 Bytes/sec = approx 4293 kbits/sec
3rd 128K took 271 ms = 483661 Bytes/sec = approx 4024 kbits/sec

What process/software are you using to measure the bb speed?

I have 4mb NTL, and using your site link, had a huge varience over 5 tests, from 1.9mb to 3.8mb.

I used to have the 10mb NTL line, and complained several times as every test I ran indicated it was running from 4 to 7mb at its very best. NTL response was to first try some techno babble, then claim that they would look into boosting the local signal.

I did consider at one point seeing if there is a regulatory body (OFCOM?) who I could raise the issue with, but instead voted with my cheque book, dropped to the cheaper pack, and can hand on heart say I have not noticed a single difference.

Thanks, i have been with NTL for nearly four years,i had been on the one mbs since they did the free upgrade,i was quite happy with it,but i thought i would like to try the faster speed, theres no doubt it is very good compared with the one mbs,so i dont really know if it is worth a call,i will give it another week or so and see if it improves, thanks again.
