Default Why is my broadband faster than I bought?

Can anyone explain why my I bought my broadband connection from
www.sayuk.com (the £12.50 - 512k connection) why when I run tests on it, it
runs at 920k ?

I am not even close to the exchange.

Interesting!
Mark

BT$ upped their basic speed to 2mb - may be you get upgraded.

The other possibility is to say something and have it downgraded.

The third possibility, the clever option, is to shutyourmouthandsaynothin.

I take it you mean 'lose'? Or did you really mean his website will become
'loose'; like an elderly woman's genitalia?

There's a thought for you all before snoozey-sleep-time...

920,000 bits/s or some other measure ?

probably because you bought it from an incompetent supplier who either
ordered the wrong thing or failed to apply their internal rate
limiting to it.

I am not even close to the exchange.


which is irrelevant as you get a fixed speed or it doesn't work at
all.

The Grove is a specialist maths and computing college at St Leonards on
Sea, East Sussex http://www.grove.e-sussex.sch.uk/. Perhaps it's an
over-enthusiastic student or lecturer?
