Maybe there is something wrong with your connection :erm:

Its really a weird question....the test shows that your speeds have dropped....there could be millions of reasons such as line problems, modem problem, nic card problem, etc.....

There is something wrong with NTL. We track data corruption on the full tests, and nearly all the people suffering from it are on NTL. As far as speed goes, if our numbers don't seem good for you, go here and pick your favorite test:

In the chance of making myself look stupid, I will tell you what I found to be the solution that I had to a simalar problem.

 

I had my video color display setting at 32-bit true color. My download speed was around 500kb. When I changed the setting to 16-bit high color, my download speed went up to 1.5-2.0 mb.

 

You might check your settings.

interesting ..who new this could be possible ..in the event that i may look stupid ill try this myself..while knowing when i signed on with this isp i excepted a package stating my bandwidth would very between 350 and 650 kbps..and have the option to pay more for a better package like 750 to 1.5 mbs....and if i want the best i can have 7mbs ..my dsl provider states more money more bandwidth

my friend get to know who controls your service and get your moneys worth.
