Its been like that for a while mate

I believe it goes on the longer the line from the exchange to your home, the more resistance there is

hence the lower speeds if you are further away


also depends on whether or not the exchange has been upgraded to take the faster services available - which i believe most have not yet

Also I have just checked my own postcode, and it says that i can only recieve up to 5MB/s

When in reality I am paying for O2's 8MB service, and at last check I am recieving 6.5MB/s


Seems the site needs updating. But still a very handy tool

We estimate your maximum download speed to be 6.5 Mbps (Megabits per second).

I pay for 8MB's

they always put "up to" before the Mbps so they could charge for 8 and you could only get 1 thats why the Gadget show where (don't know if they still r)campaigning for them to chnage the wording and be more accurate

Problem is how they market that, you can't really sell somebody a 6.38 Mb package eh?

Personally I can't stand adsl.
