Judging from other responses, my latency sucks. Why should this be?

WiFi gives crap latency figures compared to wired.

Fair enough. Did wonder if that was the cause.

Damn it. Thunderbird is sending me to a lot of really old threads lately.

As was promoted by BBC Watchdog during their usually flawed
investigations, but seems a clear tool nonetheless and is free of
adverts and other nonsense.

Download 66.8 Mbps
Upload 18.5 Mbps
Latency 6 ms

Those copper Strowger relays have gotten faster.
Shame it can't upload very fast through these copper straws.

This £14 128GB microsd card


Out of stock and one wonders whether the contents match the labelling!

Here is a proper one: -
although the price has gone up over Xmas :-(

will take 2 hours to send with Bhtee cowboy installed networks
but 3 minutes with 1Gbit symmetric fibre B4RN farmboy installed network.


IoD calls for 10Gbit fibre networks to keep UK
competitive in the global race

Indeed - big factories or offices need Gigabit or faster connections.

so that 128GB files can be sent in under 20 seconds.

My PC has a Sata III hybrid drive, so its maximum transfer rate is 6Gbps, so it could neither send nor receive at 10Gbps for more than the few seconds it would take to [un]buffer all its RAM. Do try and keep some realism in your posts.

The UK pipes into foreign countries need to
be at least x100 to keep up.

Probably are.
