This is certainly an improvement from 2.5 down/.4 up, aha. Moved from Verizon DSL to Comcast/Xfinity (the top tier cable/phone/internet bundle). I think my poor laptop got whiplash the first time I opened a webpage after I set up the router/modem...

Pretty average stats compared to what I normally get, except for the ping, which was around 40 ms last time I tried doing a speed test.

Yeah...my upload speed may be the slowest on this thread...xD
It's so slow it took 4 minutes to determine it - ping and download were done in seconds (ms for ping).

I get by though. Not really shocked that I'm behind 76% of the UK - I'm in a very rural area (hint: we recently had a spat with Wiley :P ).
I'm curious as to why it suggests I'm within 50 miles of London on the bottom of the image though...

Is this any good? I took it from my bedroom upstairs, the WiFi was downstairs, Ping was to a server in Sydney It's 8:30pm so peak hour traffic may affect the result, but I am very happy with my internet, it serves me well :D

EDIT: LOL BATTO! Your internet is horrible, hahaha. I feel privileged...

These are my speeds at home and I'm pretty happy with them! Haha! The ones I get at the university are a lot better than these, though.

I would say 8/10 because the upload speed could be a little better since the download speed was pretty good. I have a theory that if you get too close to the router, it's possible that your speeds will improve if you test them close to it.

May I introduce you all to my college's internet?



Not as superior as most of the peeps here, but it's pretty decent. Upload speed looks extremely good but in my opinion it takes about five minutes or so to upload a document. :|

It's bang on average.



Funny how being outside my room lets me have faster internet than 5% more of the entire US.

I'm on Verizon FiOS right now, and this is my internet speed. It seems to be faster than 88% of the US. I'm quite satisfied with it. I do a lot of work on my computer at home, so I always need a good net connection so that I can get them done as fast as possible. =)
