Finally got around to testing at home. I have sbc.yahoo enhanced DSL or ADSL to be more exact. Asymmetrical, where your upload is rate is limited. I think I pay about 36.95 a month plus regular landline phone. It seems that the cable broadband is much faster than DSL. I've had my DSL going on 4 years now and the service has been superb. Interesting how the results frrom the different tests vary a little.

One week later ...

Almost double last weeks number, and higher than the DSL speed I've ordered (768/256).

BUT, DSL means half the cost, and no propagation delays. ;)

Whether these are premiums subs I don't know.

Are you sure about 3gb down and 512mb up? Usually it would be 3Mbps down and 512Kbps up. 3gb, you're talking about having fiber run to your location

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Oh it's been a long day and my decent notebook (P4 3.3Ghz 2gb RAM) is in the shop. I'm on a horrible old P3 850 with 384mb RAM and everything is slow so I guess my brain was trying to go faster!

One day I'll get a T3.

Right now it's 1500/384. In reality, it usually runs 1300/360 or so. As of earlier this week, the below sign was posted in the front of my addition so in a few months I will have 15mbit/2mbit (@ $50 to boot)!
