hi i have been advised by ntl that my bb service has just got faster jumping from 150k to 300k all at no extra cost. however i feel that my service is in fact slower in recent weeks. pages and downolads take longer to load now. how can i check out the speed i'm getting?
many thanks

One reason your service might have been slower in recent weeks is that it's the school holidays, therefore children have more access to the internet, ie more internet traffic.

I am on NTL BB at 600kbps (now 750kbps) and sometimes it is slow and sometimes it is instant. There is a "contention ratio" which means the more people on at the same time in your area the slower it gets.
