To Adammaxis. 1 question, Do you have Optimum Online? That seems to be the only home service capable of those speeds. I have Time Warner's roadrunner in NYC. I'm 500 feet out of Optimum's coverage area. Here's my system: http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=TMJR9WWAFKUSLEQ7

 

I routinely get 4750/370. My peers 500 feet away can get 8000 to 9000/ 900.

Edited remark: You are Optimum Online, based on first 2 octaves of IP. Congrats. I need 802.11n or better to pick up Optimum signal.

you gus wanna try living in the UK then, Bt is proud of a 2 mb line and a whopping 256 kb upstream, unless of course you are lucky enough to live in a city, then you can get 8 mb with 400kb upstream, wow welcome to high speed internet :P , tho it's alot better than the 56 k that people who live in the villages can get, guess just become blaise about adsl, my service has gone from 512 kb to 2 mb in about 6 months, but i'm pretty sure 2 meg is about our lot.

I have earthlink, the cable is the same as rr throughout the US.

running a quick test right now (only for the internet speed)

youngone: most people don't need a fast upload speed (you and me do though, and some other people also), so they won't bother making it faster unless they see that a ton of people need it.

 

i feel bad for you people in the UK and stuff, you have expensive, slow internet.

checking drive C:... this takes longer than all of the other parts of the pit test together.

39.

45... getting impatient (it's been around 5 minutes)

finally...

Viewpoint manager installed by itself, so i guess it really is spyware/adware. I'll remove it later.

High Speed internet is high speed internet, i truely found that once it's high enough, you really can't make a page load that much faster....

i have a 2200kp/s-Downstream

and 255kp/s-Upstream

Its a low level by of Cable ISP, but its perfecly fine for me, and i also get that number, and my connectioned is shared by 3 other computers.

so it's pretty good..

It's not just about making pages load faster, but also about how fast you can download a file.
