it all depneds on were the server is located for example user in a talktalk connection would get faster speeds then other ISPs as it on the same network as they are so less chances for bottle necks

Re: talk talk speed tester

Okay personally i feel the only decent way to test your speed is to download a large file.

Here is the new world of warcraft beta download on my fibre which is supposed to be 40/2:



finished the download at around 6.08gb in around 20 minutes.

I am now downloading diablo 3:



Around 33 minutes to download 7.60gb

0 complaints here!

Agreed.Smiley Happy
Although, if you don't have unlimited download allowance, something smaller maybe?
Like a Nvidia driver, or something from iplayer. As long as the source servers are reliable it gives you a better idea of real world speeds than a speedtest, which is only a snapshot:

^Quoting for truth, keep an eye on your data allowance if you are not on unlimited.

I am currently on the unlimited plan and in the last 4 hours and 45 minutes ive downloaded almost 24gb of data, this is over half the monthly limit on the essentials package.

I am a usage hog when it comes to downloading, I will post up my usage stats in a few days when ive finished downloading my steam games and blizzard games Smiley Happy

I think i will be in the region of 300GB+ haha Smiley Happy

Not for the month just for the last 2-3 days, I went to my account and took a look which shows the details as 0 so I have to wait a couple of days Smiley Happy
