ISP speed lies!

Posted 08-18-2010 at 03:06 AM by rich_c

I just read an article about how ISPs 'exaggerate' line speeds by claiming an average of 6.7mbps whereas the reality is around 3-4 on average. It kinda reminded me of going into an electrical store and buying some sort of HiFi/music related kit. They'll claim the amp will deliver 100 watts for example. Yeah. Peak to peak! I can't remember the exact formula for converting PP to a more 'realistic' measurement but I seem to recall the answer was somewhere around 2/3 - 1/2 of the claimed figure. Probably a relevant formula for deciphering ISPs claims too!
