    Broadband Speed Tests


    speedtest.net - I have pinged about 10 servers tonight, half in France and half in Ireland & UK. Every French server is pathetically slow in download and pings (28ms) and uploads are in the region of 4-5 everywhere, I am supposed to be on 11. Best was Virgin Media Croydon with 125MB (I am on 120MB at present) and 12ms ping (I used to get 7ms) with slow upload again!

    I really would not put too much weight against what speed test results show. If you want to check what your Upstream & Downstream are. Run Shaper Probe.

    Never heard of that one, this one I use is recommended by Virgin Media, my ISP. I used to use BBmax but VM said it was not accurate. Their engineers use speedtest.net

Okay, so I was interested to test out Win 8's boot time from "shutdown" (it's in quotes because if I remember it right, its shutdown is a complex hybrid with hibernation and a shutdown) to startup. What I'm curious is though, has anyone with an SDD and UEFI tried it out to see if they achieved...
