That is a poor site to use to test your speed. They are selling their own connections, and so they throttle down the throughput to make you feel like you're getting gypped.


For an unbiased test, go to astound.net and click on "home services, and then speed test. The number will be different each time you run it.

Not bad. Thats generally going to be about average.

FYI to Everybody

They offer three choices after you do the test to post your results, you want to pic either the second choice and paste it here which will show the actual image or the third choice which will link to the image.

They actually are the same for me every time I use it and it is on par with every other site I have tested my speed on.

I've been using them almost daily to help resolve an ISP problem and I never get the same speed twice.

As to Astound, looks like they're selling service too, and I couldn't find their speed test

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.

I'm winning the upload competition at least. :) Pays to pay for Business Class.

I do remember my 300 baud modem, where I could read the text as it came across the screen left to right.
