Speeds increased dramatically when I moved to Virgin Media.  There was also 
a big increase when I changed from Flashhd to HLShd, from 20-30Mbit/s to 
50-80Mbit/s.  Radio was slower at about 4Mbit/s for HAFstd but with DAFstd 
it seems to have gone up to about 40Mbit/s.  Some TV programmes are slower, 
at about 20Mbit/s, but I don't know why.
