Listed below are links to weblogs that reference How I got on with six weeks of UPC's 100Mbs broadband service:

I was interested to know what their 100Mb service was like, even a N wireless router would struggle to maintain 100Mb speeds. But great to see someone in Ireland providing ultra fast broadband in urban areas, it's also nice to see that the UPC network is capable of it with current network. Hopefully it'll put pressure on Eircom to upgrade their network in urban areas to at least VDSL technology, we can always dream.

Adrian, you do realise that as you were connecting using wifi that this was what was dictating most of your throughput?
You could have had a 500Mb connection but if you then put a wifi router in the middle you create a bottleneck.
Even if you were using an 802.11-n router you could only have reached a theoretical maximum throughput speed of 70Mb.
Just saying like ;-)
