Well, switched from Bulldog last week (that was another BD nightmare ) and joined the Telewest 10Mbps service. Can't complain about the Telewest customer service. Installation guy was ontime and helpful. Same for their telephone support. BUT! My connection speeds are not up to scratch even the Telewest suport guys have confirmed I should be getting much higher speeds. Averaging around 4.2 - 5Mbps (down) and 350Kbps (up) and this on a purported 10Mbps service. The only thing they can suggest is swopping their supplied Motorola modem for a new one, which they will deliver Wednesday. So I ask here in the hope that someone may have a suggestion or recommendation. FYI, I am also running the connection via a Netgear WGR624 router. But the "slow" speed remains the same whether the iMac G5 is connected directly or via the router. (The iBook G4 is showing the same range of speeds). All Macs running on 10.4.8. All comments and suggetsions will be greatly appreciated.
