  1. Hi FOlks, I carry out regular speed tests to keep a careful note of how my connection performs under normal circumstances so that I have ammunition when it all goes pear shaped and I am being told that "This is all your line will support" Useful? yes it has been in the past and will be again. However, I suddenly thought today that I ave no ide where all this downloaded data is being stored or...even if it IS real data that is being transferred so...basically that's my question, Where does all this speedtest test data end up and...should i be cleaning it out at some point? By the way, my go to O.S. is Linux Kubuntu so advice about Windows, although useful, will not be relevant. Cheers for any enlightenment you can provide. James
  2. Why would you post Ookla speed test results in this forum? How strange.. By the way, the U.K. is not all "Great" as you so flippantly state. All you know is that your particular connection and area are well catered for. We are still on a 20C ADSL MAx connection up here in Northern Scotland, which is still in the U.K. As a result, people who live here get a bit fed up of all this generalisation. Before you get all defensive and insulting however, consider the position reversed? You maximum throughput has just fallen to 6Mbps downstream and 365Kbps upstream (My maximum on a good day) how do you feel? In any case, I'm perfectly happy with what I have...as long as the steam powered exchange doesn't get too clogged up and flood the backhaul, we can stream a movie and surf the net pretty successfully. Can't upload anything large though or everything else stops No cable, No Fibre, just good old Copper ADSL. Enjoy what you have because you never know what's around the next bend. J.
