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.

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.

That's like a bandwidth orgasm.

Hehe... university network speeds rule...
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.
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).
and they said I was having a bandgasm.
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).
