Right now mine is 3906 down, 646 up from the Toronto server with a ping of 120. I was able to get a max up of 4124 down by using the server in Montreal with a more reasonable ping.

It’s been slow today for some reason, typically it’s much faster…

907 kb/s up

This is mine on my laptop. I rank 97% higher than most connections.

I’ve gotten (seriously) anywhere from 2K down to 10K down. Something’s screwy with my wiring.

I speed is probably limited due to my wireless connection.

Oh how I despise Comcast.

aanuszek1 Your speed is rather decent. Look at my speed that I get from Comcast on a wireless network.

uberbatman Holy crap that’s a fast download speed the max I ever got for my download speed was 20000 kb/s. It’s weird how your upload speed is still pretty low though.

I should have a 24mbit line, but the telephone cables are old ‘n crappy so it gets slowed down an awful lot.

I can’t wait for fios in my area either

robmandu's avatar

I have FIOS in my area… and, believe it or not, Road Runner is a better deal… because I can get them to match the Verizon’s price for the closest FIOS tier… and I get faster speed.

So those of you waiting for FIOS, switch if you want… but if nothing else, play one off the other and save some $$$.

supposed to be 24mbit down and 8mbit up, but it’s more like 8mbit down and 1mbit up.

hypeserver's avatar

No offense MacBean, but I really didn’t know that dial-up was still around.

MacBean's avatar

Yup. It’s still here for all us po’ country folks who don’t have access to or can’t afford anything else.

hypeserver's avatar

Ouch I’m feeling for you MacBean hopefully you’ll be able to get a cable line or DSL line out there soon.

jazzjeppe's avatar

Gotta love it! $35 a month!
