Is anyone else getting rather bored of being told how slow our broadband speeds are again?

  dagnammit 12:32 28 Jul 09

Nope. I like to know all you BT line users are going slower than me. :P

It's no news as it's been raised many times before. It just gives the little people an opportunity to rage against big, faceless organisations who are taking their hard earned money. The ISPs all say "up to" so what's the problem?

I'm not complaining,according to the test meter I'm getting 9.2Mb. thats up-to 10Mb with Virgin,of course theres no way of knowing how accurate these tests are,as I got the same result last week

simonjary....I trust you are getting a decent speed then !!!!

6.01Mbps. I was quite surprised it was so high, and think "up to 8Mbps" isn't the world's worst advertising claim.

should put the upto in 20 feet high neon letters.

Do people go into stores with upto 70% off and expect it all to be discounted at 70%.

  laurie53 20:58 28 Jul 09

No, but I do expect them to be able to make good some part of their claim.

I didn't for one moment expect to get the 8 meg as advertised, but I did expect, over the course of a twelve month contract, to get a little better then 970/980 k which is the maximum I have ever got.
