Bank transfer faster between different banks now?

Found 7th Jul 2008
Just transferred some money to someone with a Lloyds TSB account from my HSBC account and it said..

"Your payment has been sent and will usually be credited to the beneficiary's account within 2 hours. (H48) "

News to me, usually it takes a few days doesn't it?

I was reading something about it the other day. A few banks are participating on quicker transfers between accounts so count yourself lucky! It does usually take up to 3 working days to clear.

Halifax too now... excellent news

yep hsbc 2 hours!

the sort code checker site shows which bank accounts accept faster payments. can payments be made from that particular account faster aswell?
