Speed

I am on 2mb premier, and i recently did a speed test..

Downstream 1518 Kbps (189.8 KB/sec) 1639 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 241 Kbps (30.1 KB/sec) 260 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Why is this? Why isnt it slightly faster?Huh

thats pretty close to a 2mb connection and well within the BT acceptable limits, it could have been a contention problem at your exchange or within Plusnet or just some general "background noise" on your connection
