Am I not the only one with the feeling that we're funding you lot?

You, you with the big broadband speeds, yeah, you and your shiny double figure speeds. Us, with our minuscule connections are getting a wee bit **** off with the whole thing!

Cant even watch video clips without that that annoying whirly spinny thingy coming on every two seconds.

Makes watching porn a damned nuisance I tell you!

Damned nuisance...

Possibly - it rather depends on how good your WiFi reception and quality is.

Truth be told, I'd only really think about testing it on a wired connection, otherwise, all you're really testing is which is the bigger bottleneck / bit of unreliability - your WiFi network, or your broadband connection.

If your using g or better your wi fi will not be a bottleneck.

For the sake of testing I would also always use a hard connection.
