Broadband speed

Postby Squiggle » Mon Apr 06, 2009 10:22 pm

When you are cursing your normal 8mb+ speed for slowing a bit.....

Remember us country folk!

Just had a test and the fastest I can get here is 0.5 - 1mb

zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

PS Why did the frogspawn in my pond go frothy and disappear? Really!

I'm in a proper CITY and we only get around 6.5 from a 10mb package, not too shoddy though when downloading.

Oh those lucky CITY folk! :wink:

There are no goldfish in my pond......this is a natural garden......the excuse for how untidy it is! :)

Eat eachother? But why the froth? I KNOW I'm going to regret asking that last question .................

BUT, OK you deserved this:

Test for alzheimers:

The following was developed as a mental
age assessment by the School of Psychiatry at Harvard
University . Take your time and see if you can
read each line aloud without a mistake.

The average person over 40 years of age
cannot do it!

1. This is this cat.
2. This is is cat.
3. This is how cat.
4. This is to cat.
5. This is keep cat.
6. This is an cat.
7. This is old cat.
8. This is fart cat.
9. This is busy cat.
10. This is for cat.
11. This is forty cat.
12. This is seconds cat.

Now go back and read the third word in
each line from the top down

I've decided I'll be 100% over this bug tomorrow. Trying mind over matter.

Nite nite one and all.

That'll do me! I'm on an 8mb connection and can very nearly get that in the front room. I'm sat in the bedroom at the moment so that'll do

And Squiggle your proximity to your router affects your speed.

Hi Dan

If my router was nearer, I'd be sitting on it...

Well, not quite but it's right nearby. Netgear 54Mgps wireless router.

Proximity to the telephone exchange I'm told.

Moles nibbling the cables?

Average broadband speed in Oz is 1Mb. The Federal Government has just announced that it will have every house in Australia wired up to a 24Mb connection in 8 years at a cost of AUD43 billion. I'll believe it when I see it. It took them 100 years to finish the rail line from Alice Springs to Darwin so I'm not holding my breath for the fibre-optic man to come knocking on my door.
