41€/month with telephone
good or bad for 40EUR a month
Mine is sig.
Comcast has since changed, and I need a Docsis 3 modem so my uploads are at about 6-7 now.
Not at those speeds, that is way to fast for a T1.
Just To Clear Up Any Confusion About Speed Testing..
Speedtest.net Is Inaccurate... Their Site, Has ActiveX/Flash Errors & It Has To Ping To Overseas Servers, Before Test Servers etc..
That's Why, There Is A Delay, Before Download & Upload Tests Start..
Download off Microsoft, Apple Or A Deticated FTP Server via JDownloader & Check Your Speeds etc..
Most Broadband Speed Tests.. Use 1000bit Calulations Too.. (instead Of 1024bit)
A True 1 MebiByte Binary Computer File Is 1024bit & A 1 MegaByte Decimal File Is 1000bit..
Any File You Download, Is Really A MebiByte File.. Not MegaByte..
A DIMM Of DRR3 SDRAM, Is Really Called GibiByte (GiB) 16GiB (Binary) = 16384 MegaBytes (Decimal)..
So The Fastest Download, By; sdrx1700 @ 737.78 Mb/s = 737780Kb/s = 92.2225MB/s
(1000bit - SI Decimal)
It's True Figure, Would Be; 720.48Mib/s = 90.06MiB/s (1024bit - Binary)
It Doesn't Seem Much.. But It Does Matter & Many People, Go Over Their ISPs Download Quota & Get Shaped, From These 1000bit Calculations..
An ISP 500GB Download Plan, Is Really Only 500000MB & Not 512000MB etc You Lose 12GB..
Same Thing, Goes For HDD & SSD.. You Won't Get The Volume Stated.. Marketing Ploy..
Dude... your excessive use of capital letters hurts my brain.
I Can't Help, That You Were Born, With That Issue.. Slap Your Mum.. =P
At least, a fellow Aussie, has a sense of humour.. LOL..
At home (DSL 6MBit/0.6MBit)
Netbook (outdated 3G modem (theoretical 3.6MBit/s max.))
Server (OVH France)
I live too far out in the boonies to get anything considerably faster than 6MBit DSL, unless i choose cable with ridiculous pings and even less upload (25MBit down, 0.5MBit up.. does that make sense to anyone!?)
Phone line is too noisy (SnR) to get any more than ~7.5MBit through it on the DSL side of things..
Haven't been here for awhile
Inaccurate? No, not really.
First, who cares if it pings severs over seas before it starts the test, the test is still testing the streaming speed to the server you choice, the delay before the test doesn't matter.
Also, the industry standard is 1000Kb = 1Mb, and when I say industry I mean the networking industry. So when you pay for a 50Mb/s internet connection, you are paying for 50000Kb/s. That is why speedtest.net, and every other speed test, use 1000Kb = 1Mb, because that is what the industry uses. The same goes for networking equipment. A Gigabit switch is actually 1000Mb/s, a 100M switch is actually 100000Kb/s, etc. So speedtest is accurate for what it is testing. People are usually using the sites to test their internet speed to make sure they are getting what they are paying for. If they wanted to be accurate to what software wants, they would be using Bytes not Bits, and use 1024KB = 1MB.
Also, just to clear things up, the software industry is actually the one using the prefix wrong. They should be using the Ki, Mi, or Gi prefix, those are the binary prefixes that use 1024 as the step. But they used just the single letter K, M, and G which is the decimal prefix that use 1000 as the step. So when speedtest or the HD manufacturers say GB or MB, they are actually accurate, it is software like when Windows say 500KB/s that is wrong, it should be 500KiB/s.
Holy Crap!! Those are some crazy speeds v12dock
Optical connection (they said it is 1Gb/sec.)
God damn US. Paying more for far less. Home internet connection.
This speed I got with wireless N.
I use an TP-LINK router and TP-LINK wireless PCI card : TP-Link TL-WR1043ND and TP-Link TL-WN951N
Here are my Internet speed test results,
DOWNLOAD: 0.31 Mbps
UPLOAD: 0.30 Mbps
I got the speed test results from . This site provided me results in both MBps and Mbps.
this thread is just for speedtest.net, not for other sites. link removed.
