I'm with Verizon DSL, runnng through my wireless connection while my daughter is playing games on the other laptop.

So that's not too bad for $21.95 a month.

I used New York because it was faster than a connection closer to my house.

It's real. I'm currently at Michigan State University, so this is campus internet directly to the Merrit Network via Internet II.

I have dial-up at home...

I spent $700 for this 300 baud modem in 1978, and I'm sticking with it until I absolutely have to invest in an upgrade.

...Bright House Roadrunner from Cocoa to Orlando server 4321 down and 480 up....

How did you get an Orlando server? I'm in Cocoa (PSJ actually) and get a server in Los Angeles?

Still, it's 4853/488.

I noticed that. I'm pretty slow on downloads, but I beat most of you all on my upload with the DSL.

I'll have to try this tomorrow from work, I think it will be a bit faster.

Nevermind. I'm an idiot. I didn't actually go to the website. Just clicked on another poster's link. Obviously they chose the LA server.

I went to the website and found the Orlando server.

I am smokin' the net with the speed---of a snail. I don't think 21 kbps down and 108 kbps up is very good. I could probably do better with a 20 mule team.

Thank you Verizon FiOS - consistent, too. Not Business Class, either. Beats the crap out of Comcast/TimeWarner. The other night I downloaded 24MB in less than 10 seconds. Schweet!

Yeah I find this site pretty accurate, and the chance it isnt you might be too far away from the testing server or there was some hiccup that can be eliminated by running the test again.

My speed is really good considering I am using a wireless connection, on Vista using XP drivers while another laptop and an XBox360 are connected to the net.

Sorry, just saw you had Comcast. BTW I used to be at least as fast until either the network got saturated or RR started throttling me.

FWIW here is another test at another site. It all depends on timing and servers
