Your computer hardware has nothing to do with the internet speed.

My connection costs 40 Euro, that would be 50 $ I think. But you can get 15 000 kb p/s for only 20 Euro here, but of unreliable servers.

For that price (50 dollars) the most I can get is 2mbps, I hate that stupid monopoly that is the only one to offer ADSL :thumbsdown:.

Your computer hardware has nothing to do with the internet speed.

Unless you have an absolutely crap wireless adapter and an absolutely crap wireless router - then it might suffer. But yeah, computer specs don't matter at all with a wired solution.

Oh and jf6293... wow, nice connection you have there!

I'm on my "up to 8mb" now. Still gotta wait a few days for it to reach max speed, only getting around 2.5mb at the moment, but that should improve :)

Well the closer you are to the access point the better. I use to know a guy who lived close to the Stock Exchange, got internet speeds that we're out of this world.

Mine completely varies depending on what time I do it now. I guess more people using the service so they throttle our speeds or something. Here's a few I've done over the last couple of days:

2.50pm:

4.30pm:

1.30am:

So yeah it varies between 2.5mb and 6.2mb it seems.

I don't know. And I'm not sure how it is in other countries, but in the UK it's like this:

Most people are asleep or aren't using the Internet after 11pm. Not until around 7-10pm are a few people on, checking their emails and stuff. Then not until about 6 o'clock, more or less EVERYONE is at home and browsing the Internet, thus resulting in slower speeds for all of us. When you've got a slower service, like 2mb or less, you're more or less guaranteed that at ALL times. However if you're on an ADSL service which is stated "up to 8mb" the ISP isn't under any obligation to provide you with the full 8mb (and some lines aren't capable of receiving that high a speed anyway.
If you've got cable or satellite based Internet then that's a different matter, but my post is regarding ADSL ;)

We're supposed to get max speeds of at least 6mb. And so far the fastest I've got is 6.3mb. So I'm fairly happy with that. The full 8 would be great but I'm not sure if I'll ever get that to be honest.

I downloaded 25mb heavily compressed database backup last night in 1 minute, used to take me several... think of all the porn I can download now! :P

Ok is it me or am I getting completely ripped off. This is what I have (or should have)

Orange Broadband

The fastest I have ever got on this Speed test is just under 2mb. But after reading Chris' post that I can see that it might be low, I am on at the busiest part of the day. But when I am on tonight (12 midnight maybe) I will try it again.

Yeah you are. You could try late at night I guess.

* Broadband Unlimited gives you a maximum broadband speed of 8 meg, but this can vary dependent on the distance to your local telephone exchange. We will give you an accurate estimate of the broadband speed we can provide during the order process.


Do you live in the middle of nowhere? Or like, out of town/city...?

I live in quite a big City,Newry. It's only 45 min away from Belfast.

But then my Computer is crap, I seen the posts above, but believe me you wouldn't want this if I gave it to you for free.
