300mbps... I have 10 mbps!
[QUOTE=Shocky;34548426]Well they probably have then, just that I used to have BT years ago before switching over to O2 and I used to get throttled to shit.[/QUOTE] They used to throttle people who went over 300Gb a month, but that was changed last year apparently, I've not had any trouble with throttling so far. They do still throttle p2p traffic during peak times though, I've not done a lot of torrenting or anything since I've switched so don't know how that is myself.
I'm running off of 80 kbps here at my mom's house. Great fun.

I'm in Bedlington right now.

Thanks for the info.
I live in a crappy northern irish town, and they already have fiber optics here too :o Also heh my local cabinet is literally in my garden :v:
I have FTTN through AT&T Uverse, and the speeds are shit and the prices outrageous.

Fucking boggles my mind as to why companies continually find it necessary to upgrade ALREADY fast exchanges and leave the ADSL exchanges stuck without FTTC for another 10 years. Theres an exchange down the road from me getting BT Infinity in March 2012 and has approx 5000 connected people. My exchange with 25,000 people connected still isn't even on 'future planned' exchanges for FTTC. MAKES NO SENSE.

BT needs to be quicker than that to compete with Virgin Media. [URL=http://www.speedtest.net][IMG]http://www.speedtest.net/result/1753518909.png[/IMG][/URL] Such a bad upload speed too :(
For one reason or another in this apartment I'm renting I have more upload than download. It's weird as shit. [img]http://speedtest.net/result/1753549606.png[/img]

[QUOTE=Wolfyhound;34559535]Old speedtest and using a university doesn't count..[/QUOTE] I'm in halls Right now it's a peak time so it's a lil' bit shit compared to that BUT THAT'S OKAY because no one has to know
Also, [img]http://speedtest.net/result/1753873401.png[/img] This is on LTE (4G). Sweden rocks!
[QUOTE=dije;34559230]Other people are downloading but not uploading?[/QUOTE] No it's always like that and the only other people using it is the people I'm renting it from which is a family with two children (one not even a year old, other... 3 or something). So it's really just that speed they have on it.

If I had that speed and were living on the mainland of iceland and not on this island I wouldn't be complaining because that would be my choice and not my retarded ISP being lazy.
[img]http://www.speedtest.net/result/1754490496.png[/img] Glorious BT internet. The funny thing is FTTC came to my area recently and it's cheaper than the broadband package I'm currently on.
