    I also used speakeasy.net/speedtest, it reflects the same thing speedtest.net does.

    In my sig, Virgin Home Media - Cable/fibre. Pretty good can download from certain torrents at max speed, though generally downloads films at 20-25mbps :toast:

    I think I figured out the abnormally high upload speeds. It seems they boost the upload speed you get for the first like 10 seconds of your connection, then it sinks back down to 500Kb/s, probably to make themselves look good on speed tests.

    Had Virgin Optical Fibre for more than a year when I lived in Belfast and I used to get pretty good average speeds but now I've recently moved to London and had the standard BT Broadband (Virgin isn't available here and couldn't get BT Optical Fibre for a while because they hadn't installed the cables yet) and then I got the BT Infinity yesterday and this is just something incredible. Really, really good apart that I get capped at 'peak times' due to me being a 'heavy user' (some stupid policy that heavy users get capped in peak times in order for other people to have decent internet without me taking it all up). I'm also loving the Upload speed as often even if you have huge DL, the UL is just awful.

    Exactly what it's for. Comcast does that crap too. They call it "Speed Boost". That's how I get those 400KB/s spikes in torrent uploads sometimes. Although, it does help on small uploads and downloads.

    Now, before anyone accuses me of faking anything, I didn't. I simply ran it at 6 in the morning. When I seen the result I thought 'lul wut'.

    I was hitting 20 to 30Mbps the past few weeks, but it seems to have slowed down. The TWC guys were in my apartment complex the other day, I wonder if they did something to slow me down. Either way I guess I can't really complain.

    $35 a month. 10Mbps/512kbps

    Edit, here is another test ran during the night time:

    Guess my connection isn't the greatest though for gaming:
