Just before we went on holiday, I put through an order with Be* for superfast broadband. Its what they call a LLU (Local Loop Unbundled) service, basically they have their own equipment in the local BT telephone exchange and can offer much higher speeds than BT.
With a BT based “up to 8meg” product, the best I could hope for was the 2 meg I was already getting, you can see how I felt about this by studying the green face on the chart.
With the new Be* connection promising up to 24meg, I’m getting around 8 meg, you can see how this makes me feel by studying the chart, this time reffering to the yellow face.
I did the speed test very soon after hooking it, the modem currently suggests that it may be syncing a bit faster now, I just cant be bothered to turn off all my downloads to test it at the moment.
In fact, I may need some new hard drives for christmas, the current 4 x 250Gb are pretty full and now my machine is sucking the entire Internet into itself at an alarming rate!
