    BT Dial up Speed At Home.

    Hello all.
    Well can anyone beat this ?.
    On my home BT dialup just had a 12Kbps connection (9Kbps was my lowest last year).
    So what I do is disconnect then reconnect 24 the did same 36 once more 45.2Kbps and that's about the best we get 3 miles from the exchange.
    From Michael.

    I've got a modem kicking around thats seriously slow somewhere (less than 33.6k), it actually takes a good 3-5 minutes to load the google homepage on it. No idea how fast it actually is, but it probably beats your lo-score :P

    Not that I ever use that old hunkajunk anymore...

    Not everywhere has broadband as yet remember, a friend of mine who lives near Oswestry can't get it, and apparently the whole of Milton Keynes has low quality aluminium telephone cabling, thus can't get ADSL.

    trouble is, I'm on 8mbps broadband!

    Bunch of turkeys!
    I'm thinking of learning hindi, so that I can better communicate with their complaints department!
