I finally was able to get a check by my ISP and they also said up to 4.5MB, though they still offer me 1MB. I am gonna get onto them if if they wont up it to 8MB with free UK calls (only an extra £2!) I will switch ISP.
Thanks, I usually work my way through problems better when I have someone to bounce words back on
LOL on saying that their speedchecker showed me as having a 32MB line.. something wrong their I think! Made me laugh!
Your ISP may offer a lower speed to you due to your distance from the central office or remote terminal. The farther away you are from either one of these, the slower speed you will get. They may have determined that the speed they are offering you is the most reliable speed for your distance........ Just a guess.
