    stupid living in the sticks. whats even funnier is this is definitely not accurate. I'm on "56kb/s" dial up. i usually connect at 11.5-45.9kb/s
    The 11mbs is more likely to be 100bbs

    This speed test is broken. I get 12,000 down from Maidenhead, but 50,000 from London.

    I'm on 20mbit Virgin Media. I.... hate it.

    I would do a speed test but I'm downloading something at the moment. I would talk all about my connection but I think I would bore people. The bottom line is that if you download small amounts of data, then it would be a good one to choose. If you download large amounts of data though, then I highly recommend you pick something else.

    p.s.
    Some of you have really nice connections in your homes. I loved the one from Holland, and Vancouver BC. And also KayinBlack's Comcast connection. (That is what my connection SHOULD be like). And obviously a lot of these Uni connections are impressive to look at :)

    Is that 50 mbit in both directions and yet a quota of 4GB a week? If so, does that mean that you reach the quota in about half an hour or something, and then can't use the web for entire rest of the week? :eeek: I would be sad at that if that's the case!

    Wow I heard they were really good. That's a shame to see that. Is that just an off day? Or is it constantly letting you down?

    I've always found speedtest.net to be a bit broken in all fairness as it only accounts for short bursts of download where as I find mine speeds up over a given time, same with upload.

    Yep. The quota means that if I use the bandwidth to download more than 4GB of data (excluding files from Microsoft or the school's servers), my ability to access the internet is suspended until my 7 day bandwidth usage drops below 4GB. Bunch of BS, but then again, the policy prevents others from hogging all the bandwidth when I have serious work that needs to get done.

    During the day and night, I get between 1-3% of the bandwidth that is available at ~8am in the morning. Seriously!! To go from 45mbs in the morning to 1.3 mbs the rest of the time, and even 0.4mbs sometimes at random is kind of ridiculous.

    I really do think that the 45mbs speed is a temporary error - last year by bandwidth at this time was ~5mbs, not that I'm complaining!

    Not too bad, considering I only have a 6mbit connection. Actually I get exactly what I pay for, something not all of you can expect. :p

    I've got some totally legal torrents running so the upload is slower than usual, normally 1Mbit.

    At home on a 6500/1024 line, so this is about right!

    Still at home, but VPNing through uni. Actualy knocks down speeds a bit.. I'll have to test the connection at uni on a weekend/night. The main hub for Norway (NIX) is located somewhere on campus, but I suspect severe capping, and students only get wireless on their own machines...
