Well, before I switch by broadband to talk talk, I thought I'd try out Eclipse's LLU product.

It just got activated today and although the modem is reporting a downstream speed of 4360kps the speed test on ADSLGuide.org.uk is reporting a speed of around 2300kps.

Uploads are a stonking 832kps though - I now upload as fast I was downloading last week! lol :D

If Talk Talk is this good (and its a LLU product too, so it should be), I'll be well happy.

Lets hope their infrastructure can take all these connections....!

Yeah I know, I just wanted to post the stats! lol

I'll have this for a month and then switch to Talk Talk. Bearing in mind the service is vertually identical, only TT have a 40GB cap - Eclipse are asking £50pm for it!! Where as TT is free.

ah, not interested in a capped service!
Depends what you use your internet connection for though, I doubt I use anywhere near 40GB....

Is it 40Gb total, or 40Gb peak?

Lots seem to be going for the peak options these days.

In the world according to my dad we're meant to be on ntl 10Meg. Running the speedtest on adslguide shows:

Downstream 3,610.0 Kbps ( = 3.5 Mbps )
Upstream 481.3 Kbps ( = 0.5 Mbps )

Closer to the 4Meg I thought we were on. Granted I'm using my wireless connection to run the test it should still be higher. Wish I could run the test on the desktop but the pc is so knackered it won't even load the Java applet even though I reinstalled the Java Environment.

NTL are now removing their 75G cap and making it unlimited. They obviously have a lot of competition with the likes of TT.

if it is anything like TW - get your modem changed - its a known one. although it is uncapped the modem can't handle it. TW swapped out my old one within 3 days.

Well we are supposed to have 8Meg broadband from BT today.

However it says download 1.8 and upload 0.4!Mbps

It says it can take 10 days to find the optimum speed.
I bloody hope so, i was on 2.2 yesterday!?
