Internet Speed Ranking


Recommended Posts



I have a pretty killer computer, but for some reason my Internet Ranking is listed as Top 17%. This is bringing down my total ranking and I am pretty sure my internet speed is better than 17%. I have Mediacom as my ISP and have the fastest service they offer (20Mbps download and 2Mbps upload). This is called their "Online Max" and I pay a pretty penny for it. Their "standard" service is 8Mbps download and 512Kbps. Given this, how can I only be in the Top 17%? Is everyone in the Top 16% and higher on T1's or such?


Here are my system specs:


Core 2 Extreme QX9650 @4GHz on watercooled system

i780 FTW Mobo with watercooled North Bridge, custom MOFET heatsinks, and South Bridge cooler

2x 300GB VelociRaptors in RAID0

2x eVGA 295+ in SLI

4GB G.Skill PC2 9600

X-Fi Fatality Titanium

17% is correct. There are now many cable companies providing 30,000 kbps as their standard, which is raising the bar for the rest of us.


You're paying for 20K and getting around 16K and 17%. I'm paying for 20K and getting around 19K and 13%.
