NTL - Am I missing something?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just discovered this website so, I thought I would check out the speed of my cable connection as I thought it seems a little slow.  I have NTL's highest speed package, whatever that maybe!  The reason I say 'whatever that maybe' is that I have always had the highest and this has automatically upgraded over the years.

These are the results of a download test I ran just a few minutes ago

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Download Connection is:: 2910 Kbps about 2.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 355 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/10/15 - 3:29am

Bottom Line:: 51X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 2.88 sec

Tested from a 2992 kB file and took 8.422 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: Looks Great : 0.94 % faster than the average for host (ntl.com)

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-C24617DGP

User Agent:: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; (R1 1.3); .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) [!]

Am I misreading the results or is it suggesting my speed is 2.9 megabits per second?  I have just checked the NTL website and the top speed package is 10Mbps!

Should the above results be cause for concern, i.e. a telephone call to NTL to see what I have been paying for over these past years.

All comments would be greatly recieved,

P.S. Is there another speed test I should be using?
