You can thrust me anytime u want Mike
Well we got Broadband now.. Some of the services aint great but its better then nothing!
My mate is living up in Bara Glas(think thats what its called) and he has DSL since oct 04. He is currently with UTV and I can tell you that he is getting brilliant speeds.
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!
First one seems more reliable as I got different results on the secound one - tried both servers and on both the results where different!
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
