Charter has to be the worst ISP ever. I wish there was a decent alternative for me.

Now that I'm home, I could do the test for real, just in case no one believed me. :P

Doesn't seem that the upload tested as well as I actually see in the real world, though.

Note for Comcast people: The stupid "Speedboost" only works for the first 10 - 20 MB of your download, so it is really a false indicator of speed.

Anyways, here is mine, DSL.

23 Mb/s?!??! Man, that's good. I'm on DSL now but I get Comcast Triple Play installed next Saturday.

I almost choked when the gave me the initial Triple Play Price. I called again w/ a different rep and he gave me a quote that's only $15 more than my cable bill alone. Not bad.

Maybe I will finally be able to stream Netflix in HD on my HD Tivo...

Here's my home connection. I pay for 15/2, but am considering dropping down to 10/2 so I can add FiOS TV and pay the same as I was for just phone+internet.

Here's my home:



This is through DirecTV's broadband offering, Wild Blue (as in "yonder"). That's all I have access to here: there's no DSL available via phone providers, and no cable connection in my house (too far off the street).

Check out that ping. It takes a while to beam stuff to/from the satellite, I guess.

No idea why they suggested KS as the server, although I guess it won't matter too much to the satellite. I tested a server in VA and got 1.57/0.08, 1054ms ping.

I had never checked our Internet speed since we have had fiber optics installed by our provider. Pretty impressive. I will need to run the test on one of the servers running on our 1Gb backbone.
