What speeds? UTV I use, pretty dodgy for me and there support has just got even more pathetic due to "staffing issues" - no wonder, most of the staff I speak to go on holidays every bloody week!

That is because on the second site you were downloading from two different servers on that site. You will always get different results from different servers.

If you want to get an accurate reading, them download something from one of the big servers. Maybe try the microsoft website and that should give you a good indication.

What results did you achieve by the way
