Top 10 Fastest Broadband ISPs for September 2004
September's speed test results maintain Zen in the top position although at a slightly smaller margin of only 1.3 Kbps above Virgin which climbed into second position last month. Eclipse Internet, one of the previous leaders dropped from third to sixth position.
This month has seen AOL climb into the top ten as Demon increased its performance putting it into ninth position. Wanadoo was probably the ISP with most to lose last month having dropped from fourth to eleventh position. The top ten average fell by 0.2 Kbps downstream and 0.6 Kbps upstream although the difference between the number one and ten positions decreased as Zen's lead was diminished.
As usual, we would encourage users to seek views and information on ISPs from multiple sources and not rely just on speed test results in making their choice. Previous months' results can be found here [seb]
