I've got a standard model B, connected to a Gigabit switch.
Strangely, if I ssh to it and run iperf, I get

Isn't the Network port on the PI just connected to the USB bus?

Still, I think my daughter might be happy, she was doing her homework yesterday on my Pi Zero and asked 'can't you get a slightly faster one?'

I want another zero! All still out of stock.
This one looks nice but I haven't really got a use for it at the mo.

Apparently I've got a special code to jump the queue, but, I have a thing against "first editions", as they're usually the ones where faults are found and are ironed out in the next revision... Grin
Ah screw it, queue-barging here I come... Cheesy

Queue-jumping is very un-British. Angry

We're not "British" apparently, we're "European", so perfectly okay, apparently... Grin

Well, I'm British, I'm not European.  Europe's that place off the south coast!
Pi3 should be here soon though so getting kind of excited (in a rather un-British way).

My Pi3 arrived this morning, bought a kit to get started with it (2.5A PSU, case, 16GB MicroSD card, and of course the Pi3), haven't powered it up yet, just using my bragging rights... Grin

Ha! Forgot to say, mine arrived last Wednesday.  Tongue
Have had a play but not had enough time for anything serious.
