Answer: My broadband connection. Telewest have just informed me that they've bumped it up from 2mb to 10mb at no extra cost. The upstream has gone up from 256k to 384k.:cool:

I'll be able to answer questions before anyone's asked them.O-Ha

How true.
We had 512 at work with Zen and I was upset when they gave a free upgrade to 1MG users to 2MG and then went and bought 1MG and the speed is not as good as it was at 512.... it is all to do with contension rates... we live and learn
