    Default speeeeeed!

    Hey all,

    I was wondering... How fast is your internet connection? Comcast just upgraded in our area, so when I'm not on the University's superfast line, I get this:



    14.8 Megabits! Finally something useful. If only we could speed up the upload rates...

    So, any of you out there on Verison FiOS? Roadrunner Fiber? Something superfast? Whatcha got?

    This is the place that most other websites get their speed test webapps from.

    and 1245 kbps down and 618 kbps upload by QWEST DSL line.

    Edit: good point about the ping 184ms here

    Edit: $50 per month for a stand alone DSL service ( no land line phone service )

    AT&T has the pro with 3mb down speed for $24.99, I just upgraded from 1.5 mb which was ok. Any better prices out there?

    Qwest DSL, last I tried a friend's cable it had higher latency but faster continuous transfer rate. I don't know if that's still true or not.
