I have a wireless connection that constantly changes from 54 Mbps down to 11 Mbps (at least according to my computer's current connection stats), so I really have no idea how fast or slow I'm going in comparison to the other connection here. Bleck.

D_999 - Nice setup - but does it not get to the point to where you don't notice the difference between T1 and T3 lines? (when it comes to normal surfing - NOT downloads) I mean - don't you like max out the servers and-or your computer? Either way - nice setup.....


Internet2 is useful for more than just DL's.  Realtime high-res video conferencing, VPN'ed NFS mounts or Xsessions across a continent; anything high-bandwidth.  It's fun for the whole family (of geeks).  Of course, it's highspeed now because it has such a limited user base.  If it were opened up to the commercial internet, it'd slow quite a bit.

try here. then click on test and tools in the left had side. next click on speed test. note you must have java installed for this to work. from here click on a server, doesntmatter wich, but i always go for the least busy. scroll to the bottom and press start. it will begin testing your speed. nothings saved on your pc by the way its all java. when the test is done you will see where you stand.

heres mine

BioSlayer: thanks (again) for the info, im going there now as i type this.Smiley

My results: http://www.dslreports.com/speedtests/2626492;191846;dda9ef99d8879af787063c97c59dbbcf;2.0;pit.speakeasy.net/1090009221

Your download speed : 2626492 bps, or 2564 kbps.
A 320.6 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 191846 bps, or 187 kbps.

Hot damn! I've got a cable modem, which is about $50 a month. It beats the pants off of a lousy T1 line, for a fraction of the price!  Grin

That link abowe gives me the exact transfer speeds both ways. I think it's the max limit of that "tester".

My 100mbit line should boast up to 13.5 mbytes/sec. And it does it when I connect to my friends living "inside" same university network at Tampere, Finland.

To "outer world" outside our network, I'll get maximum download bandwith about >1 mbyte/sec.

So to outside our network it's about 10 mbit connection.
But inside 100 mbit, and that's what I like a much.  Grin

All right! Cox just upgraded their service. From 3000/384 to 4000/512 Kbits. (384/48 KiloBytes/sec to 512/64 KB) Here's my new results...
- 3566/436    (445/54 KByte)
- 3351/482    (418/60 KByte)
I live close to the Cox office, so I know I'll get really good speeds. They also offer a premium 5000/768 line.  I hope they keep increasing their speed, for free of course.  Grin

I have exactly the same as Ellobo, though mine tends to be faster, sometimes reaching 25 Mbit/s. Tongue

you're most welcome. the green bars represent an average of users in your speed range. it seems though, that your connection is tops amongst your peers. Smiley well talk at ya later...
