    I saw that, I'm not happy tbh, I get 7 out of an 8 mbit connection most of the time, once they show who the better isp's are, which mine is one of imo, everyone will be signing up and I'll be lucky to get 3 mbits after that.

    Just done the test, 5 up and 347 down, gonna do the normal one now.

    7 up and 347 down again. hmmm.
