One thought on “Broadband Speedtest

  1. I tried the Large (15Mbytes) test and it took 9.5 seconds.
    I am on NTL @ 20 MB
    I ALWAYS get 20 MB on My broadband.
    I would NEVER touch ADSL from a BT line.

    Cable is the only way to get true broadband speed.
    If you are in a cabled area – dump BT and go NTL. (now virgin)
