Britain's future broadband speeds, allegedly.
What we can't understand is that if "10 million premises to receive speeds of between 300-500Mbps by end of 2020, with 1Gbps also provided" in the UK, and therefore websites will upgrade to match, how on earth is "a new universal minimum broadband speed of 5-10Mbps" going to be adequate. We are already effectively going backwards as websites adapt to faster speeds up to 60mbps and ours in rural Britain stagnate at less than 1mbps.

Funny how unbalanced the two speeds are. My upload speed at home is slightly faster than it was for that test at work. But work is 4 times faster than home for downloads.

I meant new DOWN record!

Guh!

FIOS offers the same UP and DOWN and they make it a marketing thing, but it's really only the DOWN you're interested in cos who is uploading stuff?

It's funny, because at work, we upload stuff all the time. Electronic filings at courts. The file size of exhibits can get pretty big. But then the bottleneck is the government website accepting the upload.

WTF is wrong with mine? IS it because I moved my office upstairs and I'm now wireless?
