What gives with my connection ??

Ok so my connection seems real slow lately for some reason? So done a few speed tests just now and the results are weird, what do you make of them (used plus nets speed test and ADSL guide’s speed test) all setting are the same (firewall off) for both tests and no I didn’t disconnect when I did the plusnet tests!

ADSL guide test:

Saturday, 05 November 2005, 17:14.

Downstream 341 Kbps (42.6 KB/sec) 368 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 79 Kbps (9.9 KB/sec) 85 Kbps (inc. overheads)

The above is a rubbish speed for a 2mb connection right?

Plusnets test.

05-11-2005 17:15:30 0
05-11-2005 17:11:37 1730.3

speed = 0 weird, yes?

While the bottom test shows a reasonable speed my connection doesn’t feel like it is running at this speed as it take ages to load webpages online gaming is appalling with lag and my connection generally feels sluggish and slow, any help will be appreciated.

Not much help but 'me too!' get good speedtest results but various pages timeout and take ages to load.

What speeds do you get using the BT Tester?
