Hmmm. One has to wonder at the accuracy, since I'm actually 200 mi from the server--not the 100 listed. Still, not too bad for being out in the woods, 200 miles from the nearest real city....and sure beats the 43.3kbps dialup 3 yrs ago. :rolleyes:

At my house, although I don't use the 'net at home as much as I use to. The latency is horrible compared to others who have posted.

Looking fine. Came in handy for setting up QoS.

Hehe... university network speeds rule... :D

I think I've actually been able to get higher uploads than that before. I've uploaded files to external sites at 2.5MB/s... oh well - can't complain. :P

Hehe... just got a better speed. I'll try again tonight when there are fewer people on campus.

On my lousy 8/0.8 Mbit.

I had a very nice 100/100 Fibre-LAN connection before (not very uncommon in Sweden), but I unfortunately had to move to another apartment. I got a maximum of around 90-something Mbit/s in both directions with that one. The price of that connection was about 50$/month, my current 8/0.8 costs the same.

I think 77mbit down or so qualifies to be called as such. We've got super fast links at work (OC3 between all sites) but they're just that (inter-site, no internet access over them, i.e. just intranet stuff), and we use local internet providers for internet access (cheaper that way).

Anyways. Is it just me, or speedtest.net is quite pessimistic, or perhaps it's the one mirror I'm trying (Montreal) that's not so reliable or something? At first I thought it was just something with my connection. I routinely get speeds around 1150kb/s to 1200 sustained (saw getright hit 1250 tonite, even with emule running in background). Yet, that site says I only get like 8mbit or so. Tried it at my dad's over the holidays (same mirror), and even though he's on a "basic" plan (640kbit), this thing reports less than we get downloading stuff everyday (download at ~100kb/s - never under 90, and that site reports high 500's to 600kb/s every time we try). Maybe one has to be super-close to the server for it to be a reliable measure or something.

Edit: LOL. Something's wrong with that mirror or something. Just tried it and it tells me 5030kbps, and somehow as soon as I start getright (or anything else almost) I hit twice that instantly. Distance information is quite off too (says <50 mi, but it's actually over 100).

I never trust those online speed testers. They give you a different number each time seemingly without any pattern to them. :wacko:
