Think we do run on copper wire here. Don't know why it was so slow last night, think it must have been a problem at the telephone exchange or Virgin. Here are my usual speeds, and i never get any faster than this.

If you're 2 or more miles from the exchange on copper then you'll never get great speeds. :(

Ahahaha, yeah it must be really hard for Lanky to browse the interwebs, most pages probably time out before he gets a chance to read them :lol:

According to Pingtest.net, the 'best server' available for me is still faaaaar from here. :?

I still wish it was a bit better at times, but I'm quite happy with what we have. The next upgrade would mean paying almost double of what we're paying right now, so this will probably be it for a while.

I live in the arse end of nowhere. It used to be a lot worse than this, so I guess I should think myself lucky xD.

Just had BT Infinity installed so I thought I'd post a before and after ...

This test was run on Tuesday night on my standard connection.
Image

Then I had BT Infinity activated and ran these few tests on my Android tablet last night (wi-fi)
Image

Just ran this test 5 minutes ago on my desktop PC (ethernet)

Image

Gone from slower than 86% of GB to faster than 87% of GB.

Well pleased! 8-)
