Depends what you're using it for, i can usually max out my 50Meg if im using multiple threads (download managers / segmented ftp downloads) but page loading isnt really much faster, like you say a lot of it depends on the speed of the actual site

Not only the speed of the actual site, but also the speed of the many sites that deliver content to the page I visit. I have a good ad-blocker so I don't get ads, but I still have to wait often because whatever site I'm visiting is downloading some shit from another sites.

The good thing is I didn't have to pay more to get this high speed. But it most certainly means I could downgrade my subscription to a lower level and get my old speed and pay less...

The telecom companies milk us all and we are suckers...

12 a month for 50 Mbits? That's cheap, Sheep. lol that rhymed.
I pay nearly twice as much for 16 Mb. But it includes customer support and Norton.

University of Newcastle, but the server is in Sydney? What, is there a Newcastle just outside Sydney too?

Btw, taking a speed test from a university or similar is cheating. tongue.gif
