How fast is your Internet connection?
I am starting this thread coz I am fascinated to find out how fast other PC users Internet connections are.

By going to you can find out how fast your speed is.

This is mine at server level. Thats why it's so fast, coz you need all that bandwidth to support the users accessing the server. (Also why the Upload speed is faster)<-- BEAT THAT!

Hey I've seen my brother use that site before! I'm sure I used it once just out of curiosity.

This is mine.

I guess that's just about average. (Unless lower ping is better than higher ping.) Sometimes it can take longer for downloads , but usually it's pretty fast. Download speed is surprisingly faster than I thought, but it could be better. Sometimes it takes at least a minutes for the computer to respond to downloads. I have U-Verse which ISP, from the looks of it, is rated pretty high. It's good enough for me, though can piss me off at times.

Man, I want FiOS but it's not in my area. My phone's LTE is faster than my home wifi, lol.


Pichu2Pikachu2Raichu April 4th, 2013 9:07 PM

Nice speed! Big pic, lol

So, is that on 3G? OMFG!

Aeon April 4th, 2013 9:39 PM


These threads make me feel bad. ;_;

Poke Fox April 4th, 2013 11:15 PM

Mine is kind of slow, but at least I"m happy to have some sort of connection.

Zach April 5th, 2013 12:50 AM

FiOS is awesome, but we don't pay for those speeds posted above :P (we pay about $45 for FiOS internet alone as well though)

These are wifi speeds though :/ I'm like 45-50 feet away from the router too

Synerjee April 5th, 2013 1:29 AM

This is mine.

I don't know if this is good or not lol.

Seki April 5th, 2013 3:22 AM

I always use this website to check the speed of the internet once I connect to a random wi-fi.

Anyways, this is my results.

No. Its 4G or LTE.

Satoshi Ookami April 5th, 2013 3:31 AM

DWN: 4.12Mbps
UPL: 15.28Mbps

Well... that's what you get from university's wi-fi...

Echidna April 5th, 2013 3:34 AM
I did not expect it to be that much xD

droomph April 5th, 2013 10:05 AM

they told me it would be faster.

oh well at least 90% of all pages download in about 5 seconds :)

Zach April 5th, 2013 4:53 PM

I took another result from my parents' computer, which is connected directly via ethernet, and this is much better than my result above, and what the speeds are actually supposed to be..

WarriorCat April 5th, 2013 6:10 PM

This is my PC

I don't know why it says Columbus, OH, I live almost 100 miles away from there.

And here are 3 results on my HTC 3D Evo

Cordelia April 5th, 2013 6:50 PM

Columbus is the best server for you.

And Pichu/etc -- that's 4G LTE on Verizon.

Diversion April 6th, 2013 4:23 AM

My results right now:

Ping: 37 ms
Download Speed: 0.39 mbps
Upload Speed: 0.26 mbps

It would be better if I was using ethernet.

AnonygooseD April 6th, 2013 11:40 AM

Mine... *sigh*

Magykx April 6th, 2013 11:54 AM
I've never noticed it to be that slow, but apparently it's slower than 79% of the U.S...

Liliana Vess April 6th, 2013 1:11 PM

I have a sneaky suspicion that speedtest is lying to me...

I don't think I've ever gotten faster than 2mb at uni, even when it decides to work.

Oshy April 6th, 2013 2:53 PM
I dun understand this...

The upload speed is faster, might be coz the server needs more priority to serve clients, hence the upload speed needs to be faster. It's like the config we have on our server.

twocows April 7th, 2013 8:41 PM

Right now, about 5 kBps down. Being unemployed sucks.

Pichu2Pikachu2Raichu April 7th, 2013 10:03 PM

^^ Wow, 5kbps? Dont tell me you are on dial-up there mate. OMG.
