    Just out of curiosity, what kind of bandwidth do you guys get? I'm near PHL PA and i get about 3.2mb from comcast on bandwidthplace.com. At work (a partial t1) only about 1.1 mb. Though they do have alot of computers on it.

    Run the test twice. The second time your test score will kick ass, since Safari has the 1 MB cached!! :D

    My 2MB Blueyonder speed tests at about 2.5Mbit, which get's me a max d/l speed of about 300kb/sec.

    i'm on the college LAN though, which slows to a halt when idiots using Outlook decide to open attachments :(

    Seems to be doing pretty well today though.

    My connection was too fast to be supported by the speed test. Over 8 megabits :D

    Aw man, mine shows a 2.1 and 2.3 mbit. :(
    I wonder what's causing the loss of that 0.7/0.9 mbits... overhead?
