Eh... I'm doing OK.
Back at ya, from Corvallis no less Go Beavs!
My contribution to the speed test:
About the best we can get around here. Waiting on Fiber Optic availability...
OK not bad for France!
Meanwhile, while many people thorughout the state struggle to get decent internet (faster than a couple megs up/down) one ISP is going to construct this two phase network, as part of 'gig-u.' Gig-u is some organization that creates high speed networks, around research centric schools...to quote my ISP's website (the same ISP that will only give me up to 7mb down/1mb up service)
Unless I'm mistaken, I will be living anywhere from 10-15 miles out of this service area. What's more absurd, is that the town I live in, is far more populated/busy/business centered. The only difference in the two areas, is the one getting the internet has the state university.
Not bad, considering my internet comes with my rent... maybe it has something to do with the major science university nearby?
I have fiber optics and I'm pulling less
My area didn't have the infrastructure until a few weeks ago, but they only let us start at the lowest speed (6) instead of the max (24)
Don't really know why
Best speedtest I've received to date for $49.95/mo rural service
Cannaduh SUCKS !
I thought I was still stuck at 10mb/s down & 1,5 up, & then you guys made me check...
I should probably change my utorrent bandwidth-limitation settings now..
6mbit down (580k/sec or so) 1mbit(80k/sec) up. unlimited monthly amount. 45 a month. moving where i am going to be on fiber fun and even more nerdy times ahead
I pressed "Post Reply" about 24hours ago.... That's slow.
Not too bad...
guess i'll add mine to the group
Thought I was fast......what a buzzkill.
I win the booby prize. I got the lowest ping !!
I'm trying to do that speedtest too, but can someone tell me where I can find it? I''ve clicked any button that said something that coud hint it being a button/link to start the test, but the only thing I can get is this:
Clearly you are not an online gamer. Ping is a measure of latency, which determines how fast you can react in a game. Gamers would kill for your ping time.
This looks as though you've clicked the Begin button but it never selects a server. Speedtest pings the nearest servers and chooses the one with the lowest latency. You seem to have some sort of blocking in place, so I'd try turning that off for speedtest.net.
Yeah, I know. I was kinda kiddin' when I made that statement. I used to be a major WoW addict and low ping rates REALLY helped. But man, I pale in comparison to some of these DL and UL speeds.
I'm jealous of 11 ping too! mmenzie is owning the D/L record at 96.41 Mb/s, and I have the highest U/L speed posted so far I think!
man... i forgot to turn my proxy off on my last test.... here are the results with my proxy off
