    Random topic, but I'm interested to see what the average person in Ayr (sorry/congratulations to anyone to doesn't live here) gets download speed wise. We were told we'd only get around 7meg with BT but as you can see, we got around 12 lol I'm using speedtest.net

    Here's my result

    And why not, heres the ping test result to.

    I'm not in Ayr but I was bored and thought I'd show off! (Who doesn't need an excuse to show off?)

    I'm not in Ayr either.

    I don't trust Speedtest anymore. I've found it to be erratic at best. It gives a low reading for the first part of the download then leaps way above your actual download speed. The final fugure isn't the average speed of your connection but the "actual" speed it thinks it is at the end of the run. On my 8Mb connection I've had it reading 40Mb+. While this is something to show off to your friends and brag about, it's not an accurate reading. You'll get a better idea of your download speed by just downloading a BIG file from a file sharing website (not bit torrent).

    I have a room to let if anyone is suffering terrible speeds and wants somewhere to stay in Ayr with tolerable internets ;)

    I'll try and check the two lines at the shop later - one is on Opal, the other on Zen. Could be interesting to see the variation there.
