My speed test results: http://www.speedtest.net/result/42304802.png (http://www.speedtest.net)

I was under the impression that the upload speed was normally slower than the download speed. I have done this test on a few sites and get about the same results every time. Could anyone explain this to me please? Is there something I am missing here?

Have you been speed limited by your ISP? The download speed look a bit slow.

Sorry forgot to say that I had dial-up. If I had broadband and that was my download speed my ISP would be getting some very colourful emails and phone calls.

Grand daughter just installed a new computer with a 56k modem in the Auckland North Shore area, her Dial up download was 36 which dropped to 24 at certain times of the day. Suspect her location was a long way from the exchange plus load problems. She has gone to Broadband and is as happy as Larry although the speeds are pathetic for what Broadband could be capable
