    Speed Tests

    Hey guys,
    Recently, I've been having problems with my net and it prompted me to do a little more monitoring of my connection than I usually do, one of which involves speed testing it on a regullar basis to ensure I get a consistant download / upload speed. It got me thinking...Lets test the users of the Jag forums and see what they all get and if they are getting what they are paying for!

    Here is the format we will do this. Provider name and the plan you are on, ping, download, upload and finally server location.

    For this test, I am using Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

    Provider: AT&T HighSpeed DSL @ 6.0Mbps / 768kbps
    Ping: 28
    Download: 5.09Mbps
    Upload: 0.63Mbps
    Server Location: Houston (about 50mi from me)

    Lets see who has the fastest connection - Nobody use their Jag VPS or dedicateds to do this test!

    Near me:


    Between Atlanta and me:


    This kind of shows why it is that I knew when there was an issue between GNAX and me.

    Good stuff.

    Home speeds really have changed for the better over the last 5 to 10 years.
    It wasn't long ago at all when T1 was the gold standard, now some users are getting T3 even OC-3 speeds.
    Verizon has tested 10GBit to the house.

    Hard to imagine where it all goes, what will be possible with that kind of bandwidth available.
    Good luck

    This is actually on the slow side. Usually I get better.

    It is after 5p.m. here so I won't even post the results of my pathetic speed test. Looks like I'm calling the "old" ISP tomorrow. I knew it was slow, but when you see those numbers in that hard font it really puts slow as a snail into perspective. GoHighVoltage is winning the speed race currently. I would enjoy seeing more results from more users in different areas of the world.

    It's a "guy thing", honey. Don't worry about it!

    Too bad in 2009 Verizon more or less pull out of wireline services in all but a few select markets, Sold all of their lines and accounts to Frontier in 22 states, and Frontier has no desire or plans to expand FioS, in fact they are actively tring to get people to drop FioS in favour of regular DSL, they see that is a more profitable long term service. They are also abandoning their IPTV services in favor of a DirectTV partnership. In most areas they have raised the installation fees for FioS to $750+. The CEO does not feel there is a need/desire for FTTH services..... She probably worked for ATT, lol

    You must be one of the lucky ones, as your in an area that Verizon did not abandon


    I am doubly screwed, Comcast does not currently provide any digital services to my home at all (no digital tv, no phone, no internet, just regular old Analog Cable) and I am just barely inside the distance limits for CenturyTel to offer me unreliable slow and expensive DSL services....

    But in Just 12 days Comcast is suppose to be switching this area to digital so I **should** be able to rejoin the real world and get fast Internet......

    Now that I see the results of the_ancient my own speed test results don't seem as disappointing. When you are getting results over 20 mb/s it is easy to forget that many places are still inadequately served. May comcast come through real fast for you the_ancient.

    I had Charter for about 4+ Years and just switched last month to Comcast. I had their 25Mbps line and always got 35Mbps to 45Mbps. They are a decent company, give them that. To bad their not around my new area anymore. Bummer.
