Default New Broadband :)

Hey All, I just got new broadband with UKFSN It's £19.99/m for 30GB on peak (10AM - 8PM), and 300GB off peak. I got 8MB/s, and i am happy to say that the download speed i am getting from most http servers is above 800KB/s! It's Sweet Also, The company gives all it's profit to open-source ogrinizations! Another Plus!

Yeah internet here was BAD ("3MB/s" DSL and downloading at 10k) so we just got cable from graceba at the same price. 8MB/s and actually hit 1000k on speedtest.
