The smaller the number the better. Its the distance you are from the server you ran your test from.
Bear in mind the other end or your server/equipment has to adjust (step down in speed if that end is faster than your equipment/server or if your server/equipment is faster than the other end).
noo im all 1000mb set up router modem everything this is the ping i get from not even 50 miles away ?
It depends on the route to the server it needs to take. For example, someone next door might have Fairpoint Fiber but if they were to ping me (being across the street) the packet would have to travel all the way to fairpoint's top most router, go across the internet however many hops, on to Comcast's network potentially 50 to 200 miles away, then all the way back to my house. As a result a result such a connection would have a latency of something like 50ms instead of <1ms for crossing the street. So depending on where the endpoint is on the internet itself can impact what your ping is.
Example: Speedtest to Comcast's server in Boston:
...and an equally distant server in Vermont that is known to be on a fast fiber backbone:
My bandwidth is just as fast but the route across the internet first requires the packet to travel to Boston or NYC then back to Vermont, as a result the ping is 18ms higher even though I'm just as close physically to the server as I am with Comcast's, it still needs to make that trip probably Boston or NYC, as I said before, to get to the other server anyways.
1000mb is the max ethernet your equipment can handle behind the modem. The modem will connect at the speed it does. Also it only uses what it needs on ethernet. Its not running at 1000 all the time more like what your modem connection speed is. Ive used speed test.net testmy.net to see if a customer is getting their advertised speed they paid for. Ive also fixed wifi issues by moving the modem from inside desks/tv cabinets to fix speed and reception issues.
thanks guys for everything
Are you speeds constant on mediacom?
for the most part yess but im running windows 8 and ive just seen some wierd funny things going in on it security wise i think windows 8 is a joke im seriously thinking about going back to windws 7 ultimate because my ping was way lower with that op systme dowload and upload are the same but ping jumped way up lmao i had windows 98 up there i just caught that
ISP maintenance last night and I am now the full speeds I am paying for
WiFi at Goldens Deli
Test 2 Same place different Server...
Love my ping
New 105Mb/s Comcast Xfinity service... over a 5Ghz N wireless signal;
And with 2.4Ghz N wireless signal:
Indeed it is friend
in my sig
Hey guys, how much do u actually paying per month getting 10 MB/s above in your place? I wanna compare to my place, becoz i believe my country is one the most expensive broadband at lowest speed!
I pay close to $30 a month for this SAD speed.
I hate when service is monopolize by 1 company only!
My Internet speeds are good for me.
I really wish I could have a faster internet connection
I hate my latency.
Which would make no difference regardless of the internet you had because you're traffic is traveling crossing the world.
And it proves I'm getting shafted by Aussie ISP's.
It proves that light, electricity, and radio waves can only travel so fast.
Sounds like adsl not direct from the phone box to the jack you modems on or jack/chord is crappy
I couldn't actually post the full result because it then froze. Believe it or not, that is actually and improvement over what it was this morning...
