Nice, virginmedia's 2mb... thought I'd do this test at the 'peak time', but doesn't look like they're decreasing our speed  ;D

I saw this posted on HUKD yesterday and gave it a go. Has anyone else tried it?

http://www.dslzoneuk.net/socket.php?type=interactive

My speed seems to have doubled and I'm not kidding you. It's basically unplugging unnecessary wires in your phone's master socket and extension sockets, particularly the "bell" wire which apparently isn't needed anymore. I suggest making a note of what goes where before you do this though just in case. Worked for me anyway, before this I was getting around 1500kbs and now it's up to 3000kbs :)

PS: This is for UK phones.

Was quite surprised to be honest, because i can only reach speeds of 175kbs when downloading torrents or generally anything from the internet, and when uploading on utorrent, i reach speeds of about 10 ???

Dude, those numbers are kiloBITS not kiloBYTES. You have to divide by 8, which leaves you at about 200KB/s, which is pretty much spot-on given the overhead needed by the protocol.

The website provides BULLSHIT results.

As I posted above, it showed that I have half the bandwidth I've regularly observed. When you're talking about modern DSL speeds, these apps need to be taken with a pinch of salt: if you've got just 100 people trying the app with 16Mbit DSL lines at the same time, that's nearly 200 megabytes per second load on the server.

If you want to measure your speed reasonably accurately, grab yourself a program that measures bandwidth at your NIC or per network connection locally, and download two or three Linux ISOs from different FTP servers at the same time. You'll get a much more accurate idea of your maximum speed.

It's also worth mentioning that some older routers can't handle that kind of bandwidth well, and, particularly over WiFi, your router may be the bottleneck, not your actual connection.
