Hi, so after leaving the evil Virgin Media we're going to the good side with O2 (again).
We'll be going for up to 20mb service, and they estimate we'll be getting 7-8mb.
1) How accurate is the estimate? If someone is with O2, would you be kind enough to go to their website, see how much they estimate your download speed and then see if that matches to your actual download speed? If so, kudos and ookies to you.
2) I assume for the moment the estimate is right. If so...
a) Can we watch a 720p youtube video without it affecting latency (one person can watch the video and another can play games without getting lag.)
b) Can watch BBC Iplayer HD without it affecting lag?
c) Can download something without it affecting lag?
d) And also how much would a Youtube video, (320p and 720p) use up? I heard 720p uses up about 4 mb of your connection?
3) Will I notice in difference in speed when I just surf the web? With virgin before all the problems started occuring I had 30mbps. With O2 I'll get 8mbps, will I notice a difference in loading webpages and loading videos.
