The speed is excellent but 8mb has been around abit now, some IPs have gone up to 16mb now thats fast, I'm on 8mb and have been for sometime, the only thing to watch out is you don't get a download limit or a bad usage limit.

Most broadband suppliers in the UK have an 8mb max, i've been on that speed for over a year now. There are 3 providers currently in the UK who can offer 24mb using the new ADSL2+ standard.

Stop messing around and just switch. Request your MAC code and be done with it.
