Smile Bell South

I have BS ADSL also & my speed seems to go up and down with different web sites. Everytime I do a speed test, it's always the same speed.

Is that how yours acts? Have you done any Connection speed tests?

If you are dealing with a slow server, then no matter how fast the connection is, it will load slowly. When a server slows down, it is slow for everyone. If the server is always slow, then it is.

For example, sometimes this BB takes forever, but generally is pretty fast.

connection speed test

MSN.COM has a speed test. Drill down from the portal page.

Hope this helps.
