Please correct me if I am wrong, I am using my work connection, Pretty sure it’s Xtra Broadband Explorer.

I thought my connection was running a little fast so I decided to check the speed @ nzadsl....



I was thinking that can't be right, so I cleared the cache etc. tested again and got the same result.

I thought the Max i could pull through ADSL was 3.5mb?

If your provider is using a transparent proxy the speed will be between the test server and the proxy, not your machine - unless they use a Java-based applet to test things, like I've seen in other sites. In these case the data goes to the applet, not to the browser, so it won't be cached.

Maybe you have a gateway system (server) that has a cache? In which case, deleting your local machines cache will have no effect.



Try a different test, like this one http://www.jetstreamgames.co.nz/speed/index.html, note the result, then clear your cache and try again.



Are you connected via a 10Mbit network connection at work?

Do you have a DSL connection at work, or a private network connection to a head office?

Do you have a server?

Can you see your DSL router (physically see it that is)?

could be one of the older unlimited plans and not explorer. these are slowly being removed however and replaced with the 3.5m plans.  I have a client that currentlt gets between 5 and 6m on one of these older plans.
