I’ve just run my ISP’s speed test tool which is something that I occasionally like to do to see how fast my broadband Internet connection is, and to see whether I’m getting anywhere near the 8 Mbps that I’m supposed to. So imagine my surprise when it came back and told me that I’m connected at nearly 31 Mbps!—

At least I do appear to be getting my full speed quota, which is more than can be said for many people who were upgraded from 2 Mbps, judging by some of the posts on my ISP’s forums.
