just wondering what yer connection speed
to test it go to www.bandwidthplace.com/speedtest
I'm in Australia too, and I got 746.6. But all my stuff is going through a network, so I guess that is slowing it down a bit.
mac15, are you with Optus or Telstra? Cuz if you're with Telstra I'll laugh at you...
i'm running a trial for optus. VDSL getting 6892.2
Roadrunner Tampa Bay
On wireless home network
My connection speed
I made the test 3 times
each one was different....so how accurate is this test ?
It started at 700+ and the last one 1.1 MB
3.2 megabits per second
390.3 kilobytes per second
2.6 seconds-The time it would take you to download a 1 megabyte file at this speed.
Your raw speed was 3197522.58 bits per second.
Those are my speeds
1.1 Megabits per second
138.4 kilobytes per second (I've gotten as high as 160 on other transfers)
1 MB file download in 7.4 seconds
I running through a network server as well...
1st time:2.2mg/sec: 2nd time:2.4mg/sec: 3rd time:2.9bg/sec
1st time:286.2kb/sec: 2nd time:297.3kb/sec: 3rd time:349.5kb/sec
1st time:3.8sec: 2nd time:3.4sec: 3rd time:2.9 sec
road runner tampabay
network is slow now though
here are mine
Your raw speed was 1663140.94 bits per second.
Communications: 1.7 megabits per second
Storage: 203 kilobytes per second
1MB download: 5 seconds
The time it would take you to download a 1 megabyte file at this speed.
we are too far from the NTT office to get the 8mbps service YahooBB claimes to provide
Considering how I have seen much faster downloads then that site provided, I am going to say that for the Northeast US it isn't very accurate. I have downloaded at up to 1.5Mb/second, but the site has to be able to push that much data, and not be bogged down with tons of traffic.
I might try it again later, but doubt it. The only time I have seen anything faster has been at work where we have 3 T1 lines to the outside. I downloaded a file one day where pretty much everyone else was gone for the day and it went into negative numbers (after passing 2.5MB/second). It went too fast for the browser to understand (hence the negative number).
closed a bunch of windows and quit some apps,
tested at 2Wire
on ADSL from Ameritech
1260 down/1340 up
Re: new test
on 2wire I got 1224.5 (average between 1100 & 1300 speeds)
My bandwidth is pathetic (breaking down in tears) wahhhhh.....
I'm on RoadRunner In San Diego:
Keep in mind I'm running Limewire in the background
2wire ranged from around 1300 k/sec to my peak reading here:
Still running Limewire...
maybe it's because u are bloated?
just kidding.....he he he...
i got lots of speed mine is
1.7 mbits/second communications
4.8 seconds file transfer
When I did the test, my brother was also playing starcraft over the internet(high bandwidth usage if you didn't know)
I'm actually calling my ISP techies to find out why the test numbers I got were so damned low. Considering how so many other people are getting good numbers there has to be something up with my connection here.
I am stuck with 28.8Kb dial-up, sometimes slower.
Re: Man, I feel like I've been living in the 90's for too long now!
I feel for you King.... I will never go back to dial up internet... even if it means not taking an apartment because high speed isn't available.
Techie for ever
can't go back to dial-up
I don't care for tv much anyway.....but I'd sacrifice having cable & phone for dsl or cable connection for the internet....
I couldn't possibly even think of it....
