I have a slow broadband connection and I just downloaded windows media player in about five seconds. 13 meg in about five seconds!

I've tried downloading various mp3s and so on and my download speed is absolutely blisteringly super-duper fast.

I've done an online ADSL speed test and I'm up there in the fastest speeds at around 2Mbps.

What the hell? I hope Tiscali don't notice their massive cock up and let me keep this speed.

Could be stuff cached on their servers too. Though I wouldn't think that'd account for the ADSL speed test.

I'm now downloading at around 130 - 140.

If it stays here and doesn't drop any further I'll be happy.

cool, i'll post further such chat in the Wow thread in Games.


For the record, one of my cowies briefly had 8mb broadband through Bulldog. It was extremely unstable though so he is now down to a steady 6mb.

That's ridiculously fast. I guess I'm still thinking in dial up terms where a meg is something that takes three minutes.

How can you determine your download speed?

Nearly everyone in Umeň has 10 Mbit through fiberoptic cable, or 8 Mbit through VDSL.
