I guess it's because I moved from a densely populated area (1 million people) where bandwidth limitations were pushed to the limits, to a town that has a population of 9000, where bandwidth is not overloaded. Time Warner Cable modem for both, but my new connection seems like 2X as fast on opening webpages. What are you guys scoring?

Frankly, I think that the site's estimates are rather generous.

ETA: I am on DirecWay Satellite internet by the way. Horrible speed, horrible equipment, horrible prices, and horrible customer service. Unfortunately it's the only option.

I do. I actually get better upload speed than advertised (422 kbit), and my download speed is just about 3000 as advertised.

Keep in mind that this says KILOBITS not kilobytes. Divide this by 8 for the real number.
