[link to this post]
 
I live in Jersey, Channel Islands and Newtel Ytel are currently rolling out fibre optic broadband to area's where they have their cable.

As a taste of what you can expect I link to my speedtest.net result http://www.speedtest.net/result/2756427673.png

A bit different to this post
In reply to a post by nlel:
I live in Jersey, Channel Islands and Jersey Telecom JT Global are currently upgrading the existing copper to fibre optic meaning we will all soon have the option of gigabit broadband.

As a taste of what we can expect I link to this speedtest.net result

Wow. That's truly mind blowing speeds you've got there wink. My Sky Fibre Unlimited (FTTC) does 40Mb and that's not even full fibre tongue. Oh and it's £20 a month compared to your £15.74 or whatever including GST. I think I've got the better deal laugh

You could try a different test

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html

I always worry when people say they are on a 20 Mbps service and a test shows more than that, unless the ISP is being clever and over provisioning.

Most I have seen is 22mbit down, it doesn't always get that high but is usually higher than the 15mbit I was often topping out at with a Wireless-N adaptor.

If wireless N is topping out at those speeds you have a bad wireless setup or lots of walls in the way

Don't know why the wifi performs so bad, PC in the same room as the Router only a few feet away and a 5 bar connection. Just thought I would try with an Ethernet cable and now I won't go back to wifi. In fact just ordered a 5M Cat 5 cable from eBay as the current one is only 2M and its ok temporarily.

Just done some testing and I think it may be down to my USB wifi adaptors as my machines with built in wifi seem to be OK speedwise.

This test I find it the best.

Not sure why but it gives better results than the TBB one. Although I am sure this site's tester has a fatter pipe
