    I got 20 meg from virgin... that's got to be one of the best. Best i have seen it do is about 2400kbp/s

    People at work/school/university will have the best download speed.

    who are you with for that speed? and are there capping periods during the day, and how much do you pay

    How do you find your download speed?

    I used to love taking my laptop into college to get my seed ratios up. There's just something magic about seeding something at over 2MB/s, and knowing how happy someone on the other sideof the world will be to see their superfast broadband connection finally paying off. There were some sheepish looks shared between my friends and I when the IT manager would walk into the room and start sniffing around, but nowt ever came of it.

    But, yeah. I'm not going to beat an educational network with this piddly little 22mbit line, but I thought I'd share that with you anyway.

    Any recommendations for a home broadband provider (not cable) - it would have to be uncapped and fast as possible, budget say up to £25 max per month

    Also from o2, there's Be. They offer 24mbit uncapped, and are mostly pretty good, although they do require a 3 month cancellation notice period, which sucks epic-style. £22 for that. I'm going from Be to O2 as soon as my notice period expires, since O2 offer some obscenely good deals to O2 mobile customers. £60 TopCashBack back to you, too. Score.

    You not on a fixed 1/2 meg circuit are you?

    don't really know what you mean tbh. I think i'm on 2mb broadband atm. Just checked with o2 and I'm not within their coverage...:x

    Your speed test results would indicate your on a fixed 1/2 meg circuit.

    No it's the speed that AOL have configured for your line. If your on a fixed 1/2 meg line you could live on the exchanges doorstep and you would still only get a half meg. If you know how log into your router (if you have one and not a usb modem) and check your synch. Be back on in a bit nipper is shattered and needs to go to bed

    Yeah I'm in the country about 3-4 miles from a town where the exchange is (i think...) Do you think AOL would do anything though? And I think theres virgin media cable under the road about 50 yds from my house (well ntl cables were layed there a good few years ago into the town) Wish I could get that...
