Yes very good. Bit disappointing result for upload speed, tho. But it's still fast. smile

The download is well above the national average. I can't think of any reason why you'd need that though unless it's a house with a dozen teenagers smile

The upload is poor for that kind of download in my opinion. Probably not a serious issue though.

But really to say whether it's 'good' or not we'd need some more context. Type of connection would be most useful smile

Does it strike you as someone going for bragging rights? Look how large my download is?

Could be. Seems rather lame. Anyway I can beat them on the upload by 50% smile

It's not how fast your connection is. It's what you do with it that counts. wink

It certainly does. Considering 2-3 Mb will stream HD video, I find this whole quest for speed that is no use totally pathetic. Though I suppose the choice of ISP could be a pointer to IQ :}

Also high latency, though that can be a good point in the sub-text.

Well I have 55/14 and last month I 'did' 7.6GB with it. That will probably annoy a lot of people smile
