click here for an NTL broadband speed test. The results vary from day to day. These are my results for NTL Home broadband 128K

Mon, 20th May 2003 4:36 GMT

1st 128K took 16360 ms = 8012 Bytes/sec = approx 67 kbits/sec

2nd 128K took 8680 ms = 15100 Bytes/sec = approx 126 kbits/sec

3rd 128K took 8790 ms = 14911 Bytes/sec = approx 124 kbits/sec

4th 128K took 10220 ms = 12825 Bytes/sec = approx 107 kbits/sec

1st 128K took 10760 ms = 12181 Bytes/sec = approx 101 kbits/sec

2nd 128K took 8300 ms = 15792 Bytes/sec = approx 131 kbits/sec

3rd 128K took 7080 ms = 18513 Bytes/sec = approx 154 kbits/sec

4th 128K took 7360 ms = 17809 Bytes/sec = approx 148 kbits/sec

As you can see, quite a significant difference depending on internet traffic I presume.

I find it depends where you're downloading from. Microsoft seems to be one of the fastest. Some site's are slow. I have seen download speeds of 200mb/s well over the 128mb/s I should get. Also seen well under 128mb/s too. The speed test sites all seem to give different readings too.
