Is this good, bad or indifferent as far as speed goes ?

If you're on an 8meg line then that is pretty reasonable for a weekend.

Yes it's an 8meg line, but I do have to say it dosn't much faster than the 2meg one lol.

Eventually you run into problems with the speed of th eserver when you access a web site. Most are on shared servers which can have 500 or 5000 websites on them. When they get busy, things slow up. Then if you are on a busy ISP, things also slow up. But yes, that speed is very reasonable. The upload is always a lot slower than the download.

I got it on a "twelve month special" for 29 per month, includes free phone calls, standard tv, line etc. I hope to be moving before the twelve months :) so will " renew " for the latest offer :)

Ah, yes, I managed that last time we moved, however it wasn't such a great deal then... Just a 5pm saving and no speed increase... :(

Thanks. waveysmiley

Wow..That is fast.. I am on a paltry 5 mbps line.. I do have a good uload though..I get closer to an UL of 1 mbps...

For an 8 Meg line I feel that is very low bandwidth on the Upload.. I would atleast expect 1.5 meg consistent on the upload side..

Mate, I wish I had those stats... I'd be happy with a 1meg U/L...!

I must say though, my U/L is usually better than that stat... I usually get about 340-350kbs...
