    My new apartment. Eh, not great, but I guess it's decent for Comcast in the DC metro area.

    My humble speed is a bit over 19 Mbps, still twice the speed I had with same company yesterday (new price, $24.95 per month):

    I left @prag in charge of our internet situation at the new condo. This is at 7am via wireless, can't say I'm disappointed. Let's see how it holds up to both of us using it at once.

    Before:

    Local ISP DSL

    I used to work from home for the above company so I had their DSL to maintain reliable support (ie: Self Support :nyah: ) if needed. I has the need for speed now and will be switching to ATT Uverse today. Funny enough an add for Uverse displayed on Speedtest.net as I was doing the above test. After test coming soon.

    Got a new cable modem recently. I'm paying for 30/3, so I think I'm getting a decent deal.

    After a week of down time:

    Doubled my download and upload. Went with the medium plan to dodge the $100 "Mandatory installation". Will upgrade even faster as needed.

    Welcome back, Internet.

    comcast just upgraded us to 25/5 for free (from 20/4, i think). Not seeing the speeds yet...maybe need to restart router :?

    and/or modem. I'd also give your modem a good 30 seconds or more of off-time to ensure it dumps cache.

    Is your modem a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, some DOCSIS 2.0's top at 20. Resset (Power off and on after at least 30 seconds), but if no change get ahold of Comcast like usual. Motorola SB6121 Surfboards are good DOCSIS 3.0 workhorses, Walmart has them.
  • shwaipshwaip bluffin' with my muffin Icrontian
    Yeah, I definitely meant to type "restart modem", but brain dumped for some reason.
  • ardichokeardichoke Icrontian
    You guys have finally done it (well, you guys plus AT&T continually raising my rates for the same slow connection, then never even delivering the full 1.5Mbit/s). I ordered a DOCSIS 3.0 modem yesterday and am wiring my house for coax this weekend. Comcast, I hate you, but I'll use your service since it's the only one in my area that can give me a decent speed.

    I moved from FiOS to Time Warner ... it hurts how bad upload is on cable, but as you experienced, every other option is worse.

    Yeah, it can't possibly hurt as bad as the 1.5Mbit down, 378kbit up that I'm supposed to be getting currently (though in practice my modem only connects at around 1.3Mbit down)

    Finally got proper Internet access in Illinois! Had been tethering to my phone the last few days.

    Got a fancypants new DOCSIS3 modem that's ready for them to crank it up to 11 when the time comes, but I'm hoping that one of the three small fiber companies in this town make it to my place, first.

    With a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem and quad channel bonding, this is the result I get almost every time. I wish I had the kinds of upload speeds I'm seeing with some of your connections!

    Uh oh... look who got more fiber?

    So if FermiLab is only faster than 99% of the US, what's the other 1% connect to the interwebs at?

    I found it I think.

    I was hoping to get a much more impressive speed from my server.... stupid ratelimited ports in the old datacenter. I should talk to network team about setting my port to unlimited.

    EDIT: Second and third test yielded somewhat better results...
