It's always the download speed that varies a lot. My upload speed hardly ever varies, less 0.3% usually.

I am with Orange and in mid January, at no cost, they "upgraded" me from 2Mbps to up to 8Mbps.

 

Since then I suffer about 8-12 disconnections between 4pm and midnight each day.

I have had numerous conversations with young Indian children in their overseas technical department, all have promised that it will improve within 24 hours and that BT have been notified.

 

Its clearly not Orange's fault, but I may move back to their "beginners" package at 2 Mbps, at least I won't keep getting cut off.

Same here Cranfield, I used to be with Freeserve then Wanadoo and never had any problems with either of them. Since Orange took over though I've had nothing but aggravation !

6365 / 1024 = 6.2158203125 Mbps

 

1024 Kilobytes in a Megabyte

 

Hi SI oops forgot about this thread,

Broadband is in Megabits not megabytes, bits normally refer to data transfer (1kilobit= 1000 bits) and bytes are mormally used to refer to storage space (1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes) dont get to thinking that because you have a 5.5mb connection that you are downloading 5.5 meg of data, when your ISP offers you a 5.5Mb connection, its megaBits not MegaBytes

 

to get your actual data download you need to divide by 8, 1024 divided by 8 = 128KB

bt are offering me 5.5mb so thats 5.5 x 128 = 704KB/sec, if you look below, thats just under what i should be getting, it will be more/less at different times of the day.

 

from BBMAX

Download Speed: 5170 kbps (646.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 382 kbps (47.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

 

notice, that its stating 5170kbps, well its going to that on the speedo to but refering to it as megabits on that, is it just me or have they made a mistake, ah well, ive sorted the maths anyway lolol

 

5170kbps x 128KB = 661760 (im asuming this is MEGABITS)

661760 / 1024 = 646.2 KB/s

pheeeeyeeeew.

now on a network card

 

Download Speed: 932 kbps (116.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 375 kbps (46.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

 

the card was a pig to install ,it instantly gave resourse overkill!

4 (yes 4) bit graphics ,pages taking 10 mins to load (just getting to hardware manager) strangely the graphics card had all the conflicts after an hour of faffing around disabling this and that without result ,i swopped pci slots and away every went back to normal ,hey ho
