I'm the champion(of slowness) so far...Of course I'm using dial-up.

OK, that's wierd. I got 24 Kbps down, which makes sense (26.4 Kbps dial-up) but 172 Kbps up.

The connection dropped and reset the link statistics before I could see whether data compression on the dial-up link accounted for the reading (I kinda doubt it).

At least the speed test utility didn't make any snarky "please connect to the Internet and try again" comments, however the "speedometer needle" barely budged off the stop

The idea that dial-up is still out there makes me cry.

It makes YOU cry ? How do you think WE feel ?

I could get Ka or Ku-band satellite internet , but I would have to cut down roughly 170 60-foot trees to get a clear shot at the satellites. It would really ruin the look of the property.

When time and money permit, I'll probably end up putting a small observatory* at the south end of the property maybe 1000 feet from the house, with solar panels for power, the satellite dish & modem, plus some way to get the network connection back to my house.

Hey, I just had a "simplifying thought" -- worst case I guess I could just hike out to the observatory when I needed to use the Internet.

* Put lawnmowers and gas cans in a small ugly building, you call it a shed. Put a telescope in the same small ugly building, and suddenly it's an observatory

not the worst I've seen... considering I didn't shut down other network apps, etc.

OK, after looking at you bozos, it's pretty bad. Gets the job done in general, though.

Yes, it is. I still am having trouble believing that a new, faster computer would make that much difference.

Hey Jack, yes I've had the exact same experience. A new faster computer does help speed up your Internet browsing, depending on how slow the old one was. I guess there could be a lot of factors with the new hardware and software.
