So we just updated our internet speed from 1.5 Mbps to 7  ;D
Here is the results from DSL reports:



What speed is everyone paying for, and what are you actually getting?

Hmmm, no wonder your ping is so high when we play TF2.

You should use this speed test, it's one of the better ones. Although it only offers sites in the United States.

Download Speed: 16491 kbps (2061.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 2104 kbps (263 KB/sec transfer rate)

Don't let my numbers fool you. They're horribly lopsided.

If you do some digging there should be a couple pages in one of the topics (probably in the PC Games section) that has a ton of speed test results from about a year or so ago. It'd definitely be interesting to compare the scores back then to the scores now.

That is actually what we pay for. Granted, the test server is only 40 minutes away by car...  ;D
