I'm wondering if broadband speeds do not affect how fast you download images for viewing, as I've switched providers (from Be* to 02).
All speed test websites give me an upload of 1MB and download of 10MB, yet it takes VERY LONG for pictures to become fully available for viewing (the pictures are pixellated and get less pixellated, or extend to the full height) and .gifs are unviewable (I don't have the patience).
On my old provider, pictures downloaded more quickly and gifs were usually available in a matter of seconds.
Is there a third, perhaps external factor?
*And I'll have none of that talk with people boasting about their speeds being faster than mine
