    I've just signed up to a 4mb connection, what speed in kb's should my best download speed be?

    (best so far is 200kb/ps)

    4mb = 4000 / 8 = ~500 kb/s

    Cheers guys.
    It's supposed to be a 4mb line but they haven't capped it and I'm now connected at 6.8mb.

    Whats your ISP, i highly doubt they are giving your 6.8Mb, if your in the uk is basically impossible for them to do that.

    Someone i know has bulldog, they pay for 4mb but usually only get like 2mb, what a joke of an ISP.

    Peerzy, I'm not impressed with them but I am impressed with the speed, this afternoon I was connected at 6.7mb and uploading at 60kb/ps, at one point I hit 325kb on the d/l side and stayed above 300 for the whole d/l, just need to sort out the connection failures in the evenings and I'll be happy.


    ps, my connection speeds have been between 6.5 and 6.8, well that's what my pc and not my isp tells me, I tend to believe it.
