    I have a BT broadband adsl connection and regularly have download speeds of over 3000kps. My upload speeds are however usually in the region of 260 kps. I use Speakeasy to run the speed tests and they say that upload speeds should be similar to download speeds. Is this right? I am running win xp sp2 and connect to a router via an ethernet cable. Using firefox browser. Any advice appreciated.

    Check with your ADSL service provider to see what speeds come with your particular service. At least in the USA, many broadband provider's packages have upload speeds that are slower than the download speeds.

    Thanks for that, my provider says that the max upload speeds are 448Kb so I am within their accepted range.
