    Does anyone else have Google Fiber? I've had it about 6 months now. I live in Kansas City where it is debuting, so I guess if anyone else had it they'd have to be in KC. Thought I'd post a few speed test results. I have my computer plugged directly into the modem/router box. If people are interested I can do a WiFi test too. My computer has the optional WiFi card from Apple.

    Interestingly when I go to this site I get much lower speeds. I guess it's cause my ping is higher on that test. Weird since the google test is powered by Ookla who runs the above test.

    In real world use, Google Fiber is awesome. The other day I uploaded a 50gb Quicktime file to my Dropbox account in under 10min. Also I uploaded that same file (80min HD video) to Youtube in just a few hours.

    I'd be interested in hearing anyone else's Google Fiber results with a Mac Pro. You can see my MP stats in my Signature.

    :eek: Wow, so you're basically limited to GigE speeds by your home networking gear? Jealous!
