speed on 8MB ?

What speed should I expect on an 8Mb connection. Initially I had up to 6MB but it seems to have deteriorated markedly. Is this normal ?

speed on 8MB ?

I dont think the speed test gives an accurate measurement... Ive been on "8mb" for a few weeks now, and Ive never seen the test do more than a little over 3mb.

I believe its adaptive, the more you download, the faster the speeds, Ive noticed when using a download manager, downloading multiple files.. that Ive peaked at just under 6mb. I have read somewhere that in reality, you are only likely to max about 6mb.

I think its only in rare circumstances that you may get 8mb, but Im not holding my breath... but then 6mb aint bad really is itHuh

The average should be just over 6mb/s - it depends on distance from exchange, how clean your line is and if it's raining (no really). My euro mates on 20+Mb/s lines don't usually get more than 4mb/s out of a single download, but parallel downloads can max their conn out, it just means the uploader is throttling the max speed or they haven't got the most expensive hardware to upload with. Anyone know the upload speed on a pn 8mb conn? I'm bored trawling the site now :/

Just over 400Kbps for the domestic MaxDSL and 800Kbps business or LLU
