    266KB/sec is faster than 2Mb connection speed right?

    My connection has been realy crazy lately, I have been getting some really good constant speeds apart from yesterday were I had the worse speeds ever.

    It was taking 3 minutes to download a 3MB file. Open office was going to take 14hours to download, I have just done it in 8 minutes :blink:D

    Does seem a little high but 1mb is usually around 120kb/s download speed and 2mb 240-250, so not massively out

    Yup 266KB is faster than what you would expect from a 2 Megabit connection. I would expect around about 200KB per second as a rough rule of thumb. The two separate 10Mb connections we have at work tend to peak at about 1150KB/Sec when we get a good sustained download.

    The kbps that an ADSL account syncs at though is often not representative of the speed you will get from the connection. As an example, my downstream speed typically syncs at over 3000, but I can get about 180-200KB / sec at best.

    I thought 2Mb was about 240KB/s so 266 must be about 2.2

    Those things are never accurate :twisted:

    Yea, my old 2mb connection used to say "you are now connected at 2.2mb" or "1.1" on my 1mb connection. This was using an old USB speedtouch modem.

    If you're on a router you should see synch speed of something like 2200

    (1mb connection) 1024kb/8 (8 bits in 1 byte) = 128kbps (that is theoretically the max transfer speed before attenuation etc on the line)

    On BT's fastest ADSL connection I am only getting 501Kbs download and 109Kbs upload.
    Just really sad that NTL's 20MB service is just around the corner where I live and can't get it.
    Every day I pass by those lovely metal square boxes on the ground (CCTV) and to make it worst around the corner there is this restaurant with access to 3 of those and I CANT GET ANY :x
