    Lousy speed here in rural Ireland, but I suppose I'm lucky to have a connection at all, could only get internet via an wireless dongle where my mum lives, here we get up to 3MB with Eircom, but at least I'm online.

    My current speed is:

    I was around 6.5MB with Zen last time I checked.

    Broadband speed is a great search term, and I have the domain broadbandspeed.me
    if anyone wants to buy it off me (sensible offers) and code their own speed tester!!

    I get just over 1Mbps down and 500Kbps up. Best I can do living in the middle of nowhere. Neighbors on Plus.net get 0.6Mbps down and 150Kbps up :D
