You're talking too slow. What did you say?
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 8:31:41 PM EDT
think of all the time you wasted posting this topic.

It was actually a stress reliever, because I just went to a couple picture threads. This one was fast by comparison.

I have dial-up with analog phone lines so the fastest connection I get is 24.4bps and we don't have cable where I live

Directwave (Satellite) is $600 down and $59/mo or $99/mo for 15 months

Netbeam sounds the best though..It's $149 down and $39/mo

Someday I'll be able to afford the $149

To make you feel better -

just run the test a second ago, with about 6 bit torrent downloads going at the same time



My account is set for unlimited bandwidth download, 512k upload (I work for the ISP and all, that helps). Late at night when no one is stressing the wireless backhaul, I have seen it hit 15mbit

Okay, ran a new test really really reallly early this morning, when no other customers were really stressing he backhaul on our network. I also changed my PPPoE profile to unlimited upload instead of 512k, just to see how well it would do -

Eat your heart out 56k'ers



This test was done using a SF Megapath server off of dslreports.com

Come live in NYC ; for 10Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up.

Edit: according to speakeasy:
Last Result:
Download Speed: 9234 kbps (1154.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 921 kbps (115.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

Thing is, with cable, the speeds start slow and increase, so it throws it things off in small-file speed tests.

That's why I rarely surf Arf.com when I'm at home. It is just too damn slow. I'm on high speed at work and nothing compares to it.
