please look at my sig and tell me if that is believeable or not, i'm really confuse lol
It is possible, you must have fiber optic tho...
Yeah, it's very possible. Speed test dosen't lie.
i don't have fiber although cox may have a fiber backbone, i'm on cable with a standard issue cox cable modem
Its probably in KiloBITS. On the bottom, change it to kiloBYTES
Or it could be that now, cable companies are going 10 and 15mbps. Not that hard to believe. Your upload is good, P2P will love you
Im pretty sure its b/c its in kilobits. By default, its in kilobits. I got cable too, and when i change it to kilobytes it goes to 1203 down and 18 up.
I've seen scores like that on cable and even higher. The trick is to unlock the speed limit in your modem. I freind near me unlocked his modem once and got 8.3Gb/sec; until the cable co. came knocking on his door. They said he was stealing the bandwidth for the entire neighborhood HUB. They took his modem and replaced it with one he could not 'unlock'. Both the telephone and cable co's in california are going Fiber optics. The cable co has allready upgraded most of my city, but only the main lines will be fiber, all branch lines to houses are standard. The phone co will be upgrading in the next 2-3 years and bring fiber all the way to the side of the house. Some new construction areas here allready have that. But, you gotta pay for the hookup in the cost of the new home, the speeds are crazy and the service cost more.
Yeah but im just saying, by default, speedtest.net is set to kilobits
Actually, Verizon has fiber in some of my local areas. For around $40/month you get 10Mb/s down and 2Mb/s up. For the same price, cable only gives you 8Mb/s down and 768Kb/s up. Can't wait till they get fiber in my neighborhood. lol
Here's mine. Unfortunately, my neighborhood hasn't received the upgrade to 768Kb/s up yet. It's still 384 up.
Im on 8mb/s down and 128k up
here is mine....
in MB the KB one is in my sig
I have around the same speed.
wat net have you got TK? ADSL2+ with TPG?
I have fiber optic. But i can go to 40.000 for 20 euro's more.
damn i wish my upload was that high!!!
