That's megabytes per second btw, not megabits.

BT Infinity, would be faster but the cable run from cab to house is ally instead of copper and OpenReach refuse to replace it.

It seems if you have the speedtest.net cookie on your computer it loads the images in whatever format you have set in the settings, which defaults to Megabits. That speedtest I linked to shows me Down 2.00 MB/s Up 0.78 MB/s Ping 9 ms because I have my speedtest page set to megabytes.

1 Megabytes = 8 Megabits.

Heh, its only limited by the other end, they dont have enough capacity for me to download faster, hence the upload speed being so much higher (as its alot less likely people will be uploading to webservers so they will have lots more capacity free)
