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... :)

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

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).

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 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 :D

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....
