I wasn't suggesting that forum members test the speed of their broadband.
Damian and myself were discussing in another topic the slowness of the website.
 
www.practicalcaravan.com/forum/our-website/forum-speed-0
 
Luckily for me the forum topics load time is only between three and five seconds, fairly normal. I mentioned that my Virgin Broadband connection is only the cheapo version, about 2mb while Damian's is running at around 18mb. If my broadband was of the same speed and capacity as Damian's this computer wouldn't need a mouse or keyboard - it would work by using telepathy!
I hit 'Save' in the other thread and then clicked to this thread then I entered a post which said 'Parksy (speed test)' which was all that I could think of at the time.
I think that the time elapsed between clicking Save on the other thread, switching to this one, typing my words, clicking Save on THIS thread and the post loading etc was about 1 minute 9 seconds.
If you take into account my useless two finger typing speed and less than perfect manual dexterity coupled by the relatively low speed of my own broadband connection then the 'loading speed' for me on this website is fairly normal.
 
That being the case if Haymarket webtechs can identify the difference between my set up and Damians or others who are experiencing very low forum speed they might be able to solve the problem
