I pay for 100mb, and I get it when on steam and other applications. Speedtest.net does not all ways give the best results I find. I use BBC iPlayer for testing my speed.
Got to add mine here just because it is so bad.
Text only took too long trying to open speedtest.
33.2 k over a 52k modem.
No adsl, due to BT linking us to the exchange 7km away instead of the one 2km, tried getting them to do something about it but they wont even though they have fiber laid under one of our fields going to there building on the over side of our wall. I hate BT, everyone else I know around this are has approx 16mg.
No 3g coverage in the house either.
Bt are a bunch of useless b`tards they only want to do any work at all if theres competition or government bribes. Where i live its like a ring doughnut all around theres fibre (or will be) but estate i live on is being left out. Not as bad as the above we get bb 800k here but atm it dies every night and resets to 400k or less as we are 9km cable from the exchange. Phone lines poor too noisy requires you to repeat yourself all the time but apparently its fine and within normal parameters. Tech support just blame long cable but someone in openreach/bt decided it was acceptable and they flat out lie predicted speed is 3.5mb
My mate in Ireland gets this and its on a home connection, the company also does 150Meg packages but he cant justify it. I'm getting around 7meg average.
At the moment? I get 800Kbps up 1.2Mbps down, if I'm lucky... As I'm stuck on a 3 mobile dongle until BT finally get my line installed.
