    confused Broadband speed test...HELP!!!

    After doing several BB speed tests, i still dont understand. i am currently with AOL up to 8mb. my downloads dont seem that quick. when downloading direct from microsoft, the little download box indicates speeds of around 850kbps?! does this reflect my screen shots of my results?

    hard to read the picture but looks like your getting a download speed over approx 6.6 meg which i fantastic! i live in the countryside and i'm lucky if i can get 1.5 meg download
    suggest you retry your test at a time when everyone else is online around 8pm ish is usually quite good for a "slower speed" and at approx 1am for a faster one

    hard to see but if you're getting 6.6 like deztroyer is saying, thats really good for an "up to" package i'm with bt and i'm supposed to get up to 8 meg but only get around 4 on a good day

    this can be dependant on the time and software packaage they run to test the line - speedtest is a tried and tested company recommended by most of the larger isp provoders i would go by their readings = suppose its a little like the rolling roads and bhp test results some of our intrepid members are getting - but seriously i would be very happy with your results if they were mine
