Post your internet speed
« on: January 04, 2010, 11:32:28 PM »
Instructions for those of you that don't already know how to do it

1. Go to http://www.speedtest.net/
2. Try to pick a city close to yours. Usually it will auto-select the city.
3. Run the test. Shouldn't take a long time unless I don't know, you still have dial up. :P
4. When the results are posted. Click on the button that says "Copy Direct Link"
5. Make a reply to this thread. Paste the picture link and wrap an image tag around it.

DONE!



This is at my townhouse. My landlord just put up Comcast with "Powerboost". That's why the download is so high.

I'm a little slow today. I usually have around 12 MB/s for downloads and 1.23 MB/s for uploads.

We use a Verizon MiFi Hub, since no one has strung cable up this mountain, and satellite is even slower. It's a bit off and on.
Nothing like what you guys have. I wish Chattanooga would string some Fiber optic up here.









And two more close ones for good measure.

Checked it tonight, a little slower than this afternoon when it was tested... We also have one Comcast hub which services our development, 16 townhomes and 6 condos, so it can get sluggish if there are a lot of people on it.



...and then 4 minutes later...

Only thing I'll say bout this is that Rupert is a 1.5hr drive compared to the 10-12 hour drive to Grand Prairie.
