Not bad for a standard cable line, I suppose. Download speeds vary by quite a bit depending on the time of day, though.

AFAIK it's usually the network interface that makes 99% of the difference.

I would like to apologize, publicly, to John (Bridgman) and Michael (Richeydog) for every photograph I've ever posted on this forum. After looking at your speeds, I've come to the conclusion that you both must have the patience of Job.

Hopefully everyone will now understand why I was complaining about Randy's two megabyte Scarlett Johanssen avatar. I'm always happy to see Scarlett, just wasn't happy about the 30 minute download time for the avatar

EDIT -- Jack, don't worry. Your photos have always been tastefully sized and dial-up friendly. It's the "I paid for that 15 megapixel image sensor and I'll be d***ed if I'm gonna waste one single pixel" crowd that causes us grief.

You were right, of course. Here are my home results. (I had to use the New York server since the other ones were showing really slow results.)



Man, I love FIOS.

Just a note.
Take all these readings with a grain of salt. even though you can choose a server close to you, you still may travel a different route to get there nearly every time giving you different results each time.

That being said, if you do it often enough to get a realtively consistant reading, it can be useful. If your ISP offers a server actually on your 'network' so to speak, that is going to be the only true test.

You are always at the mercy of the world when you travel the internet. One bad hop through an abnormally vusy router in some city and your test can look miserable. But since there realy isn't much of a better way to test, I'm not dissing these too much. They are probably about the best test you can do for now.

If you want to realy make it interesting. Learn how to use the TRACERT command and you will be able to see the path your data is traveling and see where it slows down along the way. Also interesting to see how your path from one city to the next will often change and thus so will your speed.

Pretty easy to do. Find out the IP address of where you want to test to and Open a DOS window and type in
TRACERT [ip address].

IN fact, you can even use a URL
TRACERT www.google.ca

Just something for when you are bored. Or at least as bored as I am to type this out at 1 in the am. heh heh

Goodnight!
