So how fast is your internet connection? I just upgraded from a 2 MB to 16 MB connection



There is no problem that cannot be solved by the use of high explosives.

You can use this speedometer to check http://www.testmyspeed.com/ it’s always nice to check that you are getting the bandwidth that your ISP have promised you

My "high speed DSL" is about 0.5 MB, thou most of the time it's 0.2 MB or much less depends on which application I'm using.  ::)

That's not too bad for ADSL Paul, quicker than mine anyway, I'm getting about 4736 Kbps at the moment, although my uplink is quicker at 896 Kbps.

Here in the UK, it depends on things like how far you are from the nearest exchange and whether that exchange has the latest kit in it. They are in the middle of a huge program to upgrade them all though, so we should all see better speeds soon.

Mine's not too bad considering I also have two TV's running off it in addition to my desktop, laptop and netbook!

6 meg is a decent download speed in much of the US South East AT$T area. Unless its U-Verse, blah..blah, etc. The corporate logo resembles the Death Star for a reason.... >:D ::)

According to the test, I'm at 4000kbps

I'm not much for current affairs, but apparently Australia's internet is the laughing stock of 1st world countries.

speedtest.net gives me 12 mbps.

Apparently a 800mb movie will take me 8 mins.

That's a bit like saying my car can travel to Melbourne in 3 hours. this is probably true, if my point of origin is the ISS when it is above St Kilda.

In practice, It takes me a crapload longer than that.

Tonight its not too bad but its not uncommon for it to drop down to 2.5Mb/s  The contention ratio around here sucks :rant:

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

also keep in mind downloading & torrents can affect the test.

for cleanest results try it with as little as possible running.

I sometimes post my results on one of my sites: http://www.themetal.net/taxonomy/term/3 altho it's typically when my connection is bad, as you can see, I've had better overall in the past, so they've actually downgraded our connection. They told us it was to make our connection more stable, which is a lie, because it's equally bad as it was, and slower.

I'd be happy if our upstream was actually the 1mb they promised... the downstream is fine, even if it is a bit slow. We have considered getting ONO fibre optic cable which is way lower contention and actual speeds are as advertised, not "thereabouts"
