OMG, that's disgusting. I'd stop using the internet if that's what I'd have to put up with.

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)!

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:

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.
