Inexpensive DSL, rated 864/160. Only paying $18.95/month, no caps, no ads, no blocked ports. They've been reliable.
This is using an old Win98FE box, 366MHZ, equipped with a software firewall and Proxomitron. Running thru an even older PC (P5-133) converted to Smoothwall. With hardware this old, I'm quite happy with the performance.

24/8Mbps connection - not very accurate for the closest speedtest site it seems:

A bit more believable when testing a few hundred kilometers away at the southern end of Sweden:

Wish FiOS were in the neighborhood :(


Hmm, down from over a year ago, ping is better though; Cable Broadband though so its variable.
Time to run some more tests, check the connection and if necessary call the ISP! :realmad:

That's strange. It does the same thing as my VTel (vermontel.net) DSL connection does, (sometimes) the download drops while the upload stays roughly the same!

Just ran it again, 1am Saturaday morning, and made sure nothing else was nothing else running behind the gateway.

Since it is a Cable connection the Downstream / Upstream bandwidth is shared amongst customers on the same node. Also it is an Asymmetric Connection meaning the Downstream/Upstream ratio is not 1:1. What is interesting is why they seem to affect each other, that is uploading decreases the download rate, instead of staying at the same ratio. I am not sure if that is a property of Asymmetric connections, Cable, the OS TCP/IP stack, some combination of those or other? Since the bandwidth from my ISP is variable it is difficult to figure this out.

It isn't university speeds, but it's close - and it's just an AT&T connection at work:

Probably would be faster later in the evening.

This speedtest is pretty slow for me, perhaps too many curious people :)
But I got me symmetric 30mbit fiber connection at home yesterday and it shows like 2mbit :P
