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?

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.

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

I just got finished installing a new splitter on the line with a higher frequency range. Here's my new score:

Download Speed: 27828 kbps (3478.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 2906 kbps (363.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Anyone living in an older house should be sure to check their cable splitters if they have any installed. Most of the older ones are 5-900 MHz (or less) and that's going to kill your speeds as modern cable lines operate above that 900 MHz ceiling. You should be fine with a 5-1000 MHz splitter. I just installed a 5-2400 MHz splitter and my speeds have improved.

Of course, if you can avoid using splitters at all that's the best solution.

How Fast is your Internet?
« Reply #25 on: February 25, 2010, 07:28:27 pm »
I'm upgrading my internet from 7 Mbps to 12 Mbps (I wish I could get 20, but it's not available in my area. Also, that's a tad extreme)
So, it got me thinking, how fast is your guy's internet?

Post what you are paying for. Then go here, and post your actual speed.

To give you an idea, here is what speedtest.net has recorded from different parts of the world:
Global Internet Speeds


Download: 5.96mbps
Upload: 0.62mbps
Ping: 186ms



To give you an idea of internet speed, here is some numbers!  :D

Ok, so internet speed is measured in kbps (kilobit a second) and mbps (megabit)
Where people get confused is that files on your computer are measured in Bytes (8 bits in a byte)

(Note: Small b = bit. Big B = Byte)

1 megabit = 0.125 megabytes (or 128 kilobytes)

5 mbps    =  0.625 MBps (or 640 KBps)

10 mbps   = 1.25 MBps (or 1280 KBps)

Nah, standard mid-range service from Comcast. Been on it for a few years, actually; however, I would like to upgrade at some point. Comcast HQ is fairly close to where I live. If I go down to the Pike I can see the tower. Since I'm within the HQ's AoE, my Internet speeds are doubled and do +5 damage to undead enemies.

We pay for 1.5mb/s, but we've only ever gotten 10% of the advertised speed for all of our plans. The fastest download I've seen my PC hit is 165kb/s, which is pretty paltry compared to what's advertised.

We should pick the place that is farthest away from where we live and see how that goes. Either that or Australia.

To Australia!



*edit*

I didn't even read that last part. I just though "I should try Australia..."

weird.  :P

I was poking around the internet, and couldn't find any answers, so maybe you guys could help me.

How much throughput does the phone line have? I'm wondering because since I have DSL, and it goes over the phone line. I doubt it goes very far on that, but still, it's a bottle neck.

I should know this since I work with networks all the time.
I'm asking because since I'm paying for 12mbps, I want to get my moneys worth.

Any thoughts?

*Edit*

Ok, found this:

"How To Speed Up Your Broadband DSL Throughput"


I might need to do some rewiring...

*Edit 2*

Woot woot! Internet just went out, and came back on. Looks like I'm upgraded  :)



Still wish I was getting my full 12 instead of 10, but that's double what I had.  ;D

I'm so out of date with technological trends right now. I wish I knew what the current hypothetical max obtainable 'speed' was. What with 100 Mb/s right around the corner in the Home Market (I'm sure Pat can attest to those rather annoying Comcast commercials about Comcast's "Xfinity" service) and the emerging '4G' wireless platforms (with speeds rivaling and/or exceeding home market counter parts), it makes me wonder if how close are to hitting the technological and what the theoretical limits are for existing technologies really is. I suppose this isn't exactly the thread to ask that question, but looks at some of these results and thinking about where we were just 5. 10, and 15 years ago makes me wonder.
