    OGC Can we ALL have a crack on this test and post results below so we'll know who is best for hosting, i'll then keep this thread updated in table format for results. If we all take test on this site using maidenhead server we'll all have fair results. I think i'm right in saying that upload is important for hosting.

    You are correct it is the upload that matters the most.
    I'll edit this post when I get home but my usual tests are around 711kbps upload.

    Everyones server is not in Maidenhead, they are just using that server as a reference point to test their speeds. If we keep it common as Richie said we will all have a fair tests.

    Right did it again due to me running lots of stuff in the background.
    Richie to get your upload speed increased you need to ask your ISP what packages they do, and I you are with BT you may aswell start looking for another broadband supplier as I don't think BT are very forth coming with increasing upload speeds.
