I just wondered if some of you get better numbers from this tester. I noticed that the speed (using a network monitor) during the test stays flat - very little variation over the test period (nice graphing function shows this very well).

My numbers:
2005-04-22 18:55:44 EST: 2446 / 424
Your download speed : 2505256 bps, or 2446 kbps.
A 305.8 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 434829 bps, or 424 kbps.

How did that compare to your previous tests (if you did any earlier)?

Not bad... really enjoying my FiOS Internet service! Supposed to be a 25/25 symmetrical service, but they give us an extra 5mbps to cover VOD overhead.

edit: Even better.

I pay for 30 down and 5 up. Most of the time I get it. Not a bad price either.

We're supposed to get 20 but normally exceed.

Isn't there a newer thread like this around here someplace?

I would post mine, but would feel inadequate. My connection is capable of 100/20, just can't justify $300 a month.

Though, these insane speeds, are they from home?

First of all.... Wow. Second of all... How is that only faster than 83% of the U.S.?! :lol:

I've been looking at some of those test results and it's pretty clear they relate only to the service provider and not the test population as a whole. That score would be 83% faster than other FIOS subscribers tested. Same with Klang's "92% faster" at only 32.29Mb/s and "A" score.

... because that's a doctored image.

The 5 in "153.6" doesn't line up, the "55" overlaps in upload ...

I have the Cincinnati equivalent but their prices must be higher, and tops out at 100. To go from 30mbps to 50 would be an extra $40 a month., then double that for 100.

I rationalize my lack of speed by saying that most of the places I download from wouldn't send it to me that fast anyway.
