    What's your connection speed? [speed test links inside]

    Discussion started by Poop Man Bob - Jan 26, 2004

    Test your speed.


    How to:
    Step 1
    Decide which server to use, click that link. The new page should show a JAVA applet. If one server is busy, try another.

    Step 2
    NOTE: if you haven't already done so, you will be prompted to install the java.sun.com plugin before using the speed tests. Most computers will already have this installed, though, so don't worry.

    Step 3
    The test may take up to 30 seconds. Don't use your connection during that period. After it is complete, the page will change to show the results.

    Step 4
    Post on here, motherfuckers.



    Pick a server:

    USA:
    http://den.speakeasy.net - Denver, CO
    http://dfw.speakeasy.net - Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
    http://nyc.speakeasy.net - New York, NY

    Canada:
    http://www.speedtest.newtel.com/ - St. Johns

    Australia:
    http://www.tcpiq.com/tcpiq/linespeed/default.asp - Queensland

    UK:
    http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp - London




    My results:
    My download speed : 2849 kbps.
    My upload speed : 370 kbps.

    Would have been faster if the Denver server worked.

    my speeds are horrible right now because I couldn't pause Azureus or Emule (it takes a long time to process through everyone's queue) but, I will return to this spot with my true readings tomorrow!!!

    Ok, I'm fixing to switch from COMCAST because the service (cable) cuts out every now and again for a couple hours.... not to mention after 3 months of getting the reduced rate in the beginning, you get bumped up to about $50 payments a month.... and service termination charges etc.... apply. So, I'm gonna sacrifice some speed for some extra cash by getting DSL.... now the question is which.

    I'm considering CharterCommunications because broadband reports says they're good.

    Avoid SBC/Yahoo! at all costs. I just terminated their service and got RoadRunner cable. Life is good.
