Who is your provider and what upload speeds should you be getting.
Also programs running in the background will affect these test results.

that's as good an upload speed you're gonna get unfortunately.

Yeah, upload speeds are always a fraction of download speeds.

I'm on BT "up to 8mb" but I never get above 3MB.

speedtest.net is good - it allows you to test your speed from different servers around the world

so it looks like i was using the wrong testing sites.so if iv got 10mb am i not expected to reach 500+ upload speeds

A good test for download speed is to download 4 consecutive files from virgin games

your upload speeds sound about right, AFAIK it is 526k on the 10mbit service.

This is not a reliable speed test for speeds above 2mb

I'm on 10mb with virgin. Your speeds look great for a 10mb line jim :) Mine will normally slow down a bit between now and 9/10pm but it doesn't really bother me that much. We had a really bad results a few weeks back, we were barely getting 1mb (sometimes not even 512!) but thankfully those problems got sorted out.

These results are for UKONLINE, North Yorkshire, Paying £24.99/month for 2meg unlimited.

Tried asking them for upgrade or a price drop today as I thought the price I was paying, was a bit extortionate, but the operators computer said Noooo.

so I have requested my MAC (code, why do people say MAC code when the C in MAC stands for code). Possibly moving to nildram, any personal reviews on this company from own experiences.

AOL living out in the sticks... It's funny because when I lived in London I could only get 2MB but in the middle of nowhere I can get these speeds!
