    I had forgotten how bizarre satellite scores are when doing bandwidth tests. The latency is ATROCIOUS, but once it spools up and buffers a solid stream, the bandwidth isn't that bad. A 512k connection to any website on terra firma isn't too shabby.

    Current speeds are:-

    Downstream 7,361.3 Kbps ( = 7.2 Mbps )
    Upstream 1,077.1 Kbps ( = 1.1 Mbps )

    Should be capable of 9mb down but I need to do some tweaking.

    Time Warner just officially upgraded everyone from 5000/384 to 7000/512. DSLReports.com speed test clocks me in at 6477/439.

    Are they doing that to everyone? Is it just the higer priced package? I just got TimeWarner Cable, and I'm still running at 5000/384. In my area, its still 5000/384 Standard and 7000/512 Premium

    Same question here, I'm running Roadrunner both here and at my parents' house in NY's Saratoga area - both look like they're still running 5000/384.

    Just moved to a new apartment. I was scared that my internet would be slow since the internet is included with the rent. But so far, I'm liking the connection here!

    Sheesh! :smokin:

    Gotta do something about my Comcast connection. Up is always about 370, but down ranges between about 5,700 all the way down to about 250 Kb/s, depending on who-knows-what.

    480 Kilobit upstream

    and i'm always running stuff that chogs down the max throughput of my DSL line. Its about $50 Canadian/month.

    Just think of my poor freinds on the East coast of Australia that are paying 50 au for just 432kbps or 55kbs download and upload of 120kbps or 15kbs on DSL from Optus Net. And thats the perfered provider too.....:thumbsdow :thumbsdow
