I am also having problems, I upgraded to 2 mb but saw no change from my 1 mb connection so I phoned India. They tell me they are unable to do a real speed test because I ditched their Sagem modem (after problems) and they don't know how to manage my D Link usb/adsl modem. Some technical help!!

No problems here on 2Mb. Could be a contention issue. What does the speed test click here show.

I have just upgraded to 2mb. I have just done the tiscali speed check (twice in quick succession). these are my readings :-

current bandwidth 256mbps 303mbps

you can download at 32mb/s 38mbs

YOU (in the box below) 262144kbps 311081kbps

I dont know whether this helps but these are my currrent readings but the speed does not seem any different than before.

I tried to ring the 'dedicated 24/7 technical help line in India but after going through all the 'press buttons' on the phone I was told to ring back later as they were too busy.

I dont suppose it really mattered because even if I had got through i probably wouldnt have been able to make then understand me or me them.

I ran 3 tests on your link, they were 798kbps, 999.3 kbps and 1003 respectively. This morning I got 1.21 mb and it is normally about that on my 1 mb connection.

I am on the Tiscali 2Mb package. Just done the test using the above link, and it stated 2.21Mbps. Just tried the speedtest from click here and the speedtest result was 1.75mbps.

Just tried your speedtest site, I'm on Tiscali 1mb package and it came back with 1.70mbps. ...alB

I am showing 1.05 mbps

Done another test using click here and its reporting that the BB connection is running 87% efficient at this moment.

Also did a test using click here

  spuds 17:51 28 Jun 2006

Just completed another two test in tandem, using click here. The readings now 1.25Mbps and 1.35Mbps.

Think I will leave it at that before I revert back to dial-up speed. Strange though the speed of page downloads seems to be flying, with no hung-ups today :O)
