I am currently using The Post Office as my ISP and they say they provide download speeds up to 8 Mgb. My current line speed is only +- 1.5 Mgb and I would like to know if I change to another ISP will it be possible that I will receive faster download speeds ? The same phone line will be used through the same local exchange, so my thoughts are that the speed will not change no matter which ISP I use ........ or am I wrong. ?? Do the servers that the various ISP use provide the difference in speeds ?
Please help me understand how it all works. I don't want to change ISP's if my speeds won't improve.
