Thanks,

I got:
Download Speed: 5405 kbps (675.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 375 kbps (46.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
with that site

DSLZone reports
2.91 Mbps which is around 372.36 KB/s including overheads

and ADSLGuide reports
Downstream 4,798.3 Kbps( = 4.7 Mbps )
Upstream 376.1 Kbps( = 0.4 Mbps )

Just one thing, Why the differance in reuslts?!

I have ZoneAlarm, Avast and IncrediMail running on my taskbar..

Just a word of caution - a lot of people (myself included) automatically
delete anything from IncrediMail. It's one of those appalling pieces of
software that looks great to the user, and hideous to everyone else.
