Testing at 5:30PM my time (not the best) yielded different results from different locations:
Maybe I'll pay my bill with an S&W until I get my 3000 I am billed for.... ;-]
Actually it is fine (a rural location) and besides at my age I can't read that fast.
I couldn't keep up w/ core dumps on a 1050 from a 360/65 in '68....
Now that ages me!
Any time you do a speed test on the Internet, you are subject to any latencies in your route. That's not entirely within your ISP's control, and that's not what they are promising you.
To see how fast your line speed is, see if you can download a large file from your ISP's own network (e.g. a software package from their web site)
I have "3 megabit" DSL service and I generally download around 300 kilobytes per second from most sites. Very rare that you will actually get to download at the full capacity of your link.
I hear you on that... I'm in a small town (moved back here in 2001) and up until a couple of years ago, all I could get here was dialup. So I'm not complaining.
Inet speed etc.
Grogan, you are absolutely right!
This is almost like island life, any storm etc and utilities are up/down........
