Here's my speakeasy result. I'll give the speedtest server a try also. I'm on a gigabit connection at my workstation, but it looks like my company needs to upgrade some of teh tubes™.

We're paying for 3 mbps, so i guess this isn't too bad. (Although ridiculous at $149.99 per month) I'm not exactly sure what kind of connection it is. All I know is it uses an antennae to receive the signal.

EDIT: Yep, it's just like me to forget to upload the screenshot.

Japan YahooBB, ADSL. I didn't choose the highest speed offered simply because I didn't believe it would really make much difference. DSL and ADSL are both distance sensitive, so buying the higher bandwidth, more expensive package is often times a waste of money -- you can't go faster than what your distance from the DSLAM allows.

I pay for 12 Mb cable connection from Comcast (over Airport Extreme wireless N). Not bad, given what I pay ($50). Only complaint is the throttling and snooping.

On Virgin Cable in the UK - supposed to be 20mb so pretty happy with the speed. It's being upgraded to 50mb some time this year too

I hope everyone remembers, that these speed tests do not measure sustained throughput.

If you want to see what your DL speed truly is, then you can try this.

Go to the Apple website and DL Mac OS 9.2.1 North American update. It is 82MB in size. Time how long it takes to DL this file from the Apple website.

Here would be my speed criteria:

Reasonable --> 3 minutes or less

Decent --> 1 minute or less

Fast --> 10 seconds or less

BTW, my friend's service was FTTH (100Mbps) which averaged 9 seconds, with the fastest being 7 seconds and the slowest being 12 seconds. Cost was $40 per month.

I have cheap ADSL which costs me about $25 per month. I just DL'ed the file in under 1 minute -- about 58 seconds.

That is good enough for me and worth the price. I could upgrade to faster ADSL (VDSL) service, but it would cost me about $45 per month. Unfortunately, in my area, I cannot get FTTH.

Oh, and the speed tests never give an accurate reading of my actual speed.
