Yeah, when I'm downloading from or uploading to a "recommended server" or pretty much a server that isn't far away, in daily internet usage this will mostly not be the case so let's take these results with a grain of salt

And I'm wireless. $60 a month. I can hook my USB wireless modem to my laptop and get internet almost anywhere in the US, no roaming charges or extra fees. But I do have a 5GB per month cap.

retested and new results:

kb = kilobit
KB = kilobyte

1 KB = 8 kb

If you divide those numbers by 8 you'll get similar numbers (150KB and 40 KB).

I'm on a 24-meg connection, but I'm also on a wireless network, which reduces the speed a bit. Before you ask, yes, we're quite close to the exchange

Re: Post your Speed test results here.
^^ Zuul, why is your upload so very, very much bigger than your download? Or do you have a proper DSL connection (i.e. same bandwidth either way) and it's just a bad day for downloads?

Note that no-one in Britain offers symmetrical connections, and indeed the company offering the biggest download speeds, Virgin Media cable, still offers only a couple of meg upload speeds. I guess they think anyone who wants a big upload bandwidth is a P2P pirate

Zuljie probably has a larger upload because he's at a college, and people upload stuff to emails etc. pretty often.

I lied. But it seems that my upload is much lower off campus than on campus. That is odd considering that they do actually limit upload bandwidth (or at least they did when I was living on campus)

Mine would be very off right now as I'm downloading FEAR 2 in Steam, but my router tells me 1184 down / 448 up. Just did some Speed tests the other day, ping is ~50ms in IE8, >270 in Opera. Wonder why such a difference?

My at home speeds are pretty much the same as at work, which is rather obvious since its Verizon DSL at both locations:
