Download speed of 427kbps!!!!

Hi,

Just thought I'd brag that at 8.25 this morning my latest speedtest returned 427kbps download speed. Cool!

Now as you may know this is well over double what I normally get and I am looking forward to getting these kinds of speeds 24/7. I play Magic the gathering online and regularly get opponents who ask me to speed up or sort out my lag problem!

Be interesting to see what it is at peak time this evening and then also to check it after the new pipe is in!

If the new pipe does the trick and gives us all speeds we expect, even at peak times, then great!

I don't know about that game, but bandwidth has never really been an issue with Plusnet, their problem is ping rate.

Playing an online real-time game requires a ping rate of less than perhaps 150 or the game is unplayable.

Last night at about 10:00 it was 977. Everyone else connected to the server I was playing on had an average of 50.

Do the maths.
