Thanks. Is your problem everyone in your area or you a bit greedy with downloads. I have no idea what the limits are despite the `no download limit` selling point they all seem to use. I think there was a big thing about this a while ago but not sure how it panned put.

Would I be right thinking there`s no point having high speeds at home? Just for mooching on the net and playing games there must be a point where you don`t get the use from the extra speed.

I guess you mean ping? Hard question to answer as it depends on a lot of things. Have you tried http://www.pingtest.net/ ?

The router the ethernet cable connecting the 2.
I do know that vista had a problem with some lynskies router and these needed a firmware up grade.
It could even be your ISP getting slammed out of it considering the time of year.
Check the ping at an off peak time early morning late at night and see if there is any difference.

trying a new adsl microfilter could improved speed. a dodgy filter reduced my speed from 800k to 200k.

Removing the bell wire(if connected still) from the master socket can see a reduction in line noise which can increase overall bandwidth and lower your latency(ping).

Ensuring that your adsl router is plugged into the master socket, as plugging in via an internal extention could reduce the bandwidth available.

Have you checked when your area will get updated on VM site?
Ours is due between April and July and we get tripled on existing speed (20 - 60) so mustn't grumble.

Below are my work results and later I will update with my home results.

Same as you mate, May-July. Not that I'm in a major hurry

I work for a managed services company, sitting on the telehouse backbone. I'm not allowed to do speedtest, they can't cope with our dual 15GB connections to this building!
