Top 10 Fastest Broadband ISPs for July 2002

Due to popular demand, we have released a list of the top 10 fastest broadband ISPs according to the results accumulated by our Speed Tester during July 2002. ISPs are ranked by average downstream speed for 512Kbps connections. We also plan to start publishing ISP speed test results on a monthly basis shortly. In the meanwhile to whet your appetite, here is the list:

Rank ISP Downstream (Kbps) Upstream (Kbps)
1 446 224
2 Zen Internet 441 228
3 One.Tel 437 233
4 Nildram 436 225
5= Andrews & Arnold 429 221
5= Demon 429 230
5= Freeserve 429 225
8 Eclipse Internet 424 230
9 BTOpenworld 421 212
10 Mailbox Internet 418 223

Last month saw a close battle for 1st position with taking the gold trophy by a 5Kbps downstream average over rival ISP Zen Internet.

Please note that smaller ISPs may be excluded from this list due to a lack or absence of speed test data. In addition, we urge our users to try our ISP Comparator which considers other factors such as reliability and customer service. Remember to ask in our Message Boards if you're choosing a new ISP!
