Misleading graphic as it apparently compares 80/20 with ADSL2

https://www.plus.net/home-broadband/package-guides/fibre-optic-broadband#file-transfers

This graphic - although illustrative - is grossly misleading as it doesn't differentiate between the two fibre products and standard fibre is only twice as fast as ADSL for upstream

@Oldjim

Refresh the page and watch as it demonstrates how much quicker Fibre will download upload mp3s over ADSL.

Yes you did - the accompanying verbiage refers to uploads and that is where it is misleading

This is the text

Why wait to upload and download larger files? With superfast fibre the time it takes to send more of your photos, emails with bigger attachments, videos or graphics isn't super slow.

So, you can post your latest holiday photos to Facebook in minutes, quickly create a YouTube video straight after a big event, or speak with family and friends on Skype smoothly with fewer interruptions.

  • Safely back up your files to The Cloud faster
  • Chat face to face - with crystal clear video calling
  • Photos, videos and music can be uploaded or downloaded in a flash
