denemc: We actually have Vodafone TV boxes (don't do it, they are terrible and we are getting them removed on Monday) and if I do the speed test with them on the TV drops out meaning the connection is saturated - which points to yet another problem they refuse to acknowledge. The Vodafone TV is supposed to be on a parallel fibre connection. If this is true, then doing a speed test would have no impact on it.

Zreh: Quick question OP (for educational reasons...): How fast do your torrent speeds go? I'm on 50Down/10 up (sobs) and I thought that it was fast. ~600Mb Down... Jesus.
edit: it's HTML5 vs Flash
Zreh: Thanks for the information! Have you ever gotten 25mb/sec while you download? I usually get about 4.8 down max on my torrents and 6.1 down when pulling something from Google's servers. Also.. I noticed that you linked beta.speedtest.. is there any difference with the normal speedtest or does it just look prettier? edit: it's HTML5 vs Flash
