Just to make you feel 'at home' its not that much better here in downtown Doncaster, I can usually manage about 2x those speeds but not always.

I'm on a BT FTTH Trial - best bit about it is the Broadband is totally free - we also took part in a 21st Century Network trial back in 2004 - we had free internet and phone calls then Posted Image

Similar for us in Shropshire — 3.5 down, and a paltry 0.32 up! The speeds that some members get are just incredible, even though they are poor compared with countries with good broadband.

Anxiously awaiting BT to lay down the FTTC. My line attenuation is dreadful, around 50DB.

How I would love to play COD on your connection. As your ping is so low I would destroy everyone. http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif

Can vary a lot throughout the day though. Evenings might only have a download speed of 3megs.

Although it certainly doesn't feel that fast

It's probably because there aren't that many servers that could utilise such high speeds. Since my broadband's gone to about 60meg, the only real difference I notice when browsing is that clips on the BBC News website and iPlayer programs get going quicker. Having said that, I did download a movie on iTunes the other day and it took around 5 minutes for a 1.6gb file. My son says he can carry out mass slaughter a lot quicker on Call of Duty now our ping is below 10ms.

I am on Virginmedia fibre optic too and I cannot fault it, it's the Ronseal of Broadband IMO.

Our village has got some funding which looks like it's going to enable us to finally get the fibre to home via a 5ghz wireless link back to Penrith. This would offer 70mbps download and upload and also be sufficient to allow Orange to install a something which would then give mobile reception to the village (and I don't mean UMA).The benefit over the current set-up is that we won't be reliant within the village on numerous wireless devices, which can't service everyone due to trees etc, and the more devices you have, the more chance of problems.

Being close to the exchange, we are able to get quite a good speed using ADSL2+ although it varies quite a bit at peak times :(
