High Speed Cable Test
 
Lol...all this recent talk about networks/speeds lead me to go and test my High Speed Cable.

Here's one result taken from Speedtest.net:

These test were done from Downtown Toronto around 16:00(rush hour) with a Rogers Cable Extreme connection. Supposedly this will give me 8Mbps down and 800Kbps up.

I'm also going to check what others rate my speed at, around this time. Here's the Intel Speedtest

This is the Bandwith Place Speedtest:

Fairly small difference between all of them except for Intel/Bandwith Place Speedtest! Check your speed and post the results here! :thumb:

Pipe is 45 mbit down, at least 10 mbit up, which I can get depending on the source/destination.

Not too hot, but a busy time of day for cell phones to the bandwidth is a little light

EDIT_ holoy moly Mars- that's some serious speed

$300 per year is the official IT/tech fee at my school, which covers internet/cable/phone.

I'm moving off campus in about a month to Eastlink's 15/1 mbps package which is $110/month (splitting with 3 other guys) for internet/cable/phone. Will be mostly the fast upload speed I'll miss, being able to send stuff to people at their max download speed is great.

Are you in HFX?

Good luck actually getting 15 out of eastlink. I'm lucky to break 10.

It's still fairly good service though, and not many sites will serve 15 anywise. :)

Nope, Antigonish, at St. FX. :)

I've never dealt with Eastlink before, only the usual tear-your-hair out dealings with Aliant before I moved here for school.

Heh... I spent a couple of years with Alliant up in the Valley. Dropped connections were so frequent (several times daily) that I vowed never to pay for a PPPoe account again.

Overall I've been pretty happy with Eastlink here in HRM. Very few real issues in 6 years, and I don't need to take off my shoes to be able to count the # of times I've had an outage which lasted longer than 15 minutes. :)

im paying for 5mbps down/ 1 mbps up by result are more like :

Avg : 600kbps down max 754kbps
avg : 650kbps up, max 857kbps

i think they are doing a joke with that 5mbps
