    Is anyone trying any files from heanet.ie though ? It's still without a doubt the fastest place to download anything from. If that doesn't max out your line then nothing will. Try the link somebody posted back on first page :
    http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-i386/4.10/4.10-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso

    See what speed that download settles down to.

    I'd just like to remind people who are trying to test their speed.

    1) Everyone on NTL at the moment is probably trying to download the entire internet at the moment :) in order to try out their new connections. So the network is likely to be a bit up and down.

    2) Speed test sites like irishisptest.com are probably being hammered by so many people testing.

    MY tests have ranged from 4.5m to 9m just a second ago :)

    Things will settle down over the next few days.

    Nice one. Power cycled and getting roughly 4mbps with 500kbps up. Wheres my other 4 mbs?

    I'd like to say a special thank you to Magnet Networks without whom NTL wouldn't have felt threatened enough to increase the speeds.

    Now would you all please stop downloading I've a very importnt speed test to do.

    I'd like to say a special thank you to Magnet Networks without whom NTL wouldn't have felt threatened enough to increase the speeds.

    I'm not sure if Magnet had much to do with this upgrade, I think it may have more to do with UPC about to complete it's purchase of NTL:Ireland and UPC bringing the speeds in line with what it offers throughout the rest of Europe.

    See my thread on Chorus below for my interesting stuff.

    It will look really good to be able to advertise 10m BB when they rebrand NTL and Chorus as UPC. I'm sure they will have a massive nationwide TV and newspaper ad campaign for the rebranding.

    If they could only launch their voice service, then they could really put the boot into Eircom by offering the triple play.

    You know it is incredible to think that my upload speed is now faster then what my download speed was on DSL just 3 years ago!!!

    It is also incredible to think that the download speed is the same as a 10mb ethernet connection!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,762 ✭✭✭ WizZard


    Why oh why can't I get NTL. I'm sitting in the middle of their southside network for God's sake :(

    Congrats to all who have these new speeds though! ;) Lucky sods :p

    Im actually curious. Im moving into Ranelagh on Saturday and I know that they have ntl Television there does that mean u can get the 3MB(NOW 10MB) broadband. Other question is do NTL do their BB and TV together, Im looking at their site and I know they do seperate products but is there a single product that covers TV and BB?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭ masteroftherealm


    Teeheeehee nice now you know what Ive had for the past while...

    You must get NTL Analogue TV service if you want to get BB. Sometimes if you get BB, theygive you the analogue TV service free for 12 months (worth €19 per month).
