The speed here depends on how many mice actually show up for the treadmill run.  Time Warner rules the roost down this way.

This thread is giving me an inferiority complex. 

Don't worry, mine is more pathetic...






But I won't complain as it comes included in my monthly HOA payment and it is fairly close to the 12 Mb/s that they promised.  I could upgrade to 24Mb/s for about $24 a month, but I haven't really had the need for it.  My "legal" downloads and porn streaming are done in just a matter of seconds with the speed I have :)


Now, if I had this I'd be quite sad:




And to think that back in the day everyone got so excited when they went from a 28k to a 56k modem.  Remember getting kicked off by AOL as you were in the middle of some hot convo?  "Goodye!!"

Edited to say to Ann the time is right - we're on British Summer Time now. :-) I'm enjoying the lighter evenings.

Very nice 'P'.  I wish the Schuylkill Expressway, aka the Sure-Kill could go half as fast.  Two weeks from today we will be passing through your fair city around mid-day so perhaps it will be moving somewhat ok.  I will toot the horn and wave hello when we get there.

Welcome to Australia, slowest download speeds in the developed world.

I just did the test from my work computer - download 2.70 Mb/s (faster than 67% of Australians!!!). Beat that.

And people dare question the govt about building the national broadband network (fibre to the home) that will give 97% of Australians download speeds of a minimum 100 Mb/s in peak times. The market has failed us miserably.

I find it amusing that I get a faster speed from the speedtest run to melbourne, than to the one in my home city

under 2km vs 400+km

Apparently everything is slower in the South.

Back in February 2010, Google announced its plans to build out a fiber-optic network for a city in the United States, promising connection speeds around 1Gb/s ó 100 times faster than the broadband most people are used to. The announcement led 1,100 cities to apply, and today Google has just announced the winning city: Kansas City, Kansas...

Ford,

Greensboro is quite a ways from Chester.  It seems to me that Time Warner would have you connecting to a Charlotte server instead.  My results came back with a 'C' rating too.
