    I has a mediocre ISP & limited bandwidth options...and sadly it is a major improvement over what it was 3 years ago. *cries*

    Wow. Looks like you have already been blazing your way across the internet but could you be faster still and do you have the best deal.

    Kelmo...look at the distance to the server that was chosen for your speedtest.net test. Guessing that may be the reason for the higher latency displayed in the test. I'd blame New Mexico! :D

    Yeah... I noticed. I can not seem to find one closer... I don't seem to have any problems that I can perceive.

    Maybe a nice tools sticky is in order? Tests and pings and a widget or two? Just thinking out loud...

    Did it just for fun, not the most impressive speed in the world...

    Kiss my bytes! About the worst one I've seen. And the actual distance is over 200 miles line-of-sight, over 250 miles by phone lines for DSL.

    Can I have a crown? We're actually *hopefully* getting wireless broadband next week, so hopefully it's a temporary crown ;)

    I'd really love to know though, why it is I can upload so much faster then download (according to that test) cos if we could download that fast too, I'd be really happy!

    Incidentally, I like to pretend that you all are faking your speeds, and that internet that fast isnt really possible ;) (find out next week! I HOPE!)

    Distance!

    Damn I still get decent throughput, even testing to a server 7500 miles away...

    I've had it go up as high as 13.x, too.

    Of course, if I test through St. Louis or Chicago, it doesn't go above 4, and of course, those are the routes my ISP routes me through to EA's west coast servers.

    Part of the problem is that I'm literally a few thousand feet from the furthest distance my cable co. will offer internet out to (probably a good 15 miles from the hub of the local branch of the system), and that they inherited really crappy infrastruction from Charter when they bought Charter's KY operations. Even the installers were getting half the signal strength here that they were supposed to be getting, when they were doing the install. But, it was better than what the phone system had to offer (the phones weren't reliable enough for conversations, let alone dial-up - Alltel was letting the phone infrastructure slip faster than Charter was the cable - and NewWave's done more meaningful infrastructure modernization than Windstream did, to the point I finally went to VOIP in disgust).
