...since when did my connection get upgraded? Well, that explains the glitch last night.

I just downloaded a 4.21MB file in 6 seconds. I thought this link was only supposed to be 2Mb/s. Let's see...

Speedtest.net claims this:
Speedtest.net: Download: 6.54Mb/s, Upload: 0.79Mb/s, Ping: 34ms

Pure internet speed tests are however generally a bad way to test your connection speed, as there's far too many variables in the list. A much better way is to download something chunky from as close to you as possible, and time that. My ISP runs a public ftp server, so let's download something from it. According to my FTP client I managed a transfer rate of 7.64Mbps (I'm not sure how it worked that out), which as about what my connection is actually synchronised at.

Yay faster internets!
