Internet speeds

Just out of curiousity (and boredom) how fast is your internet connection? You can get a free test here:

Post your speeds and your connection type. :slight_smile: High speeds will be applauded, low will be ridiculed. :wink:

My speed: ~2.4 (over 3 tests) (faster than T-1! Wow!) Connection: Cable :slight_smile:

1.1 Mbps That’s wireless 802.11b connected to comcast cable modem.

Meh…148 kilobits. Thats a wireless connection via pci to my toshiba cable modem, which hopefully explains the reason that my internet is much, much slower than average connecticut cable.

Heh. I’m still stuck on 640k/180k DSL. Same price ($50/mo) and same speed since we first got it 4 years ago. It’s a rip-off… but there’s no competition.

I got 2.4 megabits per second. This is through a SMC router then through my Motorola cable modem. This was all hard wired, I didn’t have any of my laptops on to go through my wireless cards (802.11b) and my D-Link base antannea first before going to the router.

I used to have either 1.6 or 1.8 Mbps for $40 per month but that was only a trial and now I’m at about 300K. :frowning: I’ll be switching to 1.6 Mbps DSL for $30 per month. :slight_smile:

1.4 megabits per second for a DSL, pretty good.
I love my DSL, i just switched my old slow and boring dial up, i am glad i did. LOL

Wow… And I thought my Cable Modem speed was slow… I guess not.

3.2 megabits per second

Communications 3.2 megabits per second
Storage 387.3 kilobytes per second
1MB file download 2.6 seconds
Subjective rating Awesome

Side note: I tried this test at school a few hours ago, and I got an error that my speed was either too fast or to slow to determine…
I’m guessing too fast!

1.8 mb per second

comcast cable isn’t so bad. :slight_smile:

Communications: 937.2 kilobits per second

3.4 megabits per second… not bad, considering I’m on a 802.11b connection to a crappy Linksys router, which is connected to a Motorola cable modem.

this is embarassing… I’ll have to redo this at my place:
this is Jack Flash (epix) DSL wireless 802.11b netgear on an old modem :frowning:

… hehe, ya’ll wait… my apt. has a new motorola with Adelphia High Speed Cable, and running a Super G… rawr! :eek: I’ll post when I get back down there.

This is pathetic:

Charter Communications Sucks

Earthlink Cable Internet, Syracuse, NY

Not too shabby…

I ran the bandwidth speed test on the wireless connection at Bird Library at Syracuse University and topped out around 4.7… now THAT was good :slight_smile:

1.2 Mbps
Comm: 1.2 Mbps

Very good, considering I pay for 1.5 Mbps (187 KB/s) , which means I’m getting 98% of my advertised line speed.:cool:

544.4 kilobits per second…and thats me bootlegging 3 giant 4 gig games and downloading 6 full albums :smiley: :yikes:

i have to try this again wen im not downloading ne thing :smiley: :]

3.1 on a netgear router connected to Cable… its not really the downstream that matters anymore its the up.

I do use a router… Oh and I use Optimum Online… They’re pretty good…

I had to do this as a comparison:
Below is Adelphia Cable through an 802.11b router first wireless then hardwired.

If you look back… you’ll see my DSL reading on THE SAME set-up. :yikes:
I’ll try to post one on the Super G later, or have Scott or Robert come in and post the Super G.
