    Biggles got a reaction from mikej101 in Hi All from Mike in the UK   
    good evening  Michael ? , or Hi M8 from Biggles UK ,
    I am intrigued by a UK Sat connection. v. rare in the UK,
    Seen a lot of 56k dialup ,adsl, fibre. Fttc ,Ftth but never Sat ,
    that is totally new to me , please post more details ,
    But I guess TMN is the right place  for Sat questions , and never did me any harm only
    good from  dial up through to Fibre to the cabinet ,

    Biggles got a reaction from CA3LE in Who?   
    Canadian cousins Doh , only kidding I love them to bits ,
    as Ca3le says  ( my take )this site has endless deep corners,
    I have often posted and said "Doh" ,
    just shows how Americanized I have become ,
    normaly I would have said , oh dear I have just made a fool of myself  , indeed Doh  saves keybord stokes ,

    Biggles got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in TiP Measurement Summary   
    Dammit ,I guess I got to move to Singapore , but then maybe Singapore is v. close to Dallas , ?
    just guesing on that , being there is so much Chinese stuff in America , LOL ( Brit humour strikes again )
     
    Just been Testing with my Brit Telecom  ISP , using my rock solid 40 X8 conection to TMN Amsterdam Netherlands ,( 300 miles )
     repetedly gives. 2.9 down 6 up , while a download from  M/soft USA gives 4.4 ,
    and a dreaded Flash test to Kansk USSR (3000 miles) gives 29.8 down 4 up  , local UK, admitedly flash tests, gives me 37.5 X 8.2 ,
    to be honest I have given up speed testing full stop , too many varibles IMHO .
     
    BTW Pgoodwin,  from memory TIP stands for "trouble in paradise ,"  maybe I am wrong on that ?
