I tested many times, and got always something like this!

But I'm sure it's wrong. Isp ( Yahoo Bt broadband 8md ) my download speed when I download a file goes from 500kbps, at the start, to 250kbps at the end.

ps.. I'm using TCP optimizer 2.03, but I don't see any improvement.

bye :?:

This time of day will be slower since everybody is also using the bandwidth. But that appears slow still.

Try reading this to see if your computer is clean.


And then you might try to tweak it if you haven't as of yet.


And welcome to the forum  MaxMau  :wave:

Anybody out there is using Bt yahoo 8mb as isp prov?

Never seen anyone in the UK get 8Mb with ADSL, it is sold on the UP to 8Mb

I  just done the BT engineer line test to  my exchange (2miles) and got this


The speed test has completed on test server test.speedtester.bt.com for user 0208xxxxxxx and you have downloaded a 1.7Mb file at a speed of

1905 kilo bits per second (Kbps), your service bandwidth will have been quoted to you in kilo bits per second.

Your IP address is 217.47.xx.xxx, your browser is reported as being Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 and is running on Windows XP.

BT would regard the speed ranges shown below as normal service:

  For 250kbps End Users speeds between 50 - 250kbps.

  For 500kbps End Users speeds between 100 - 500kbps.

  For 1000kbps End Users speeds between 200 - 1000kbps.

  For 2000kbps End Users speeds between 400 - 2000kbps.

You may now disconnect from the speed test account (click 'disconnect' in your internet connection window) and if you wish to regain normal access to the internet please re-connect to your ISP using your usual username and password.

Please note that test results may vary according to varying traffic in the network. If you continue to experience slower throughput when logged in to your ISP, this may be due to a slow internet site or high traffic levels beyond the BT Wholesale Network. Please report this situation to your ISP's helpdesk.


  but BT is happy to sell me the up to 8Mb service ?

but note the low speed complaint level, below that they will not provide any assistance ,

I loose about 5-10% testing in the USA,
