BB speed is to do with the supplier, not the browser.
I also doubt the server is that far away, its more than likely sitting in the local telephone exchange

could be the manchester server was loaded up at the time you tested,

do like for like, select preston in chrome.
also noticed chrome doesn't give flash player priority when it doesn't have focus, so don't go on different pages or programs while testing


heres mine in chrome

I did 3 tests in each browser and the results were fairly consistent.

Why are Virgins upload speeds so slow when you clearly have decent connections?? Or is that just by chance they were were both low in your results?

it's because they've not upgraded the uploads yet,
even then it'd be 6mbps (10 : 1)

even the adsl at work is like that,
11mbps down, 0.8mbps up
