There was an article in yesterday’s Daily Mail that said that most people in Britain were not getting the Internet Speed they were paying for.
Periodically I test the speed I am getting on my ADSL connection. Bear in mind that I am paying extra for 10MB as opposed to the 3MB we were originally allocated by Telefónica. In light of the newspaper article, I thought I would check again.
Due to various reason (the phone line, the protocols and the PC itself) it isn’t possible to get the full speed claimed. As you can see Telefónica reckon you should get between 80 and 95 percent which for me would be between 8 and 9.5MB so clearly 8.6Mb is well within tolerance.
