I don't see how that's possible. If I ping something on the internal network the ping times are at least a few ms. Rounding down? bug? Physics wouldn't allow for true 0ms.

Yeah I agree. But on the source link he did another speed test from his dorm and got a slower (but still great) ping.

Yeah, when you're talking millionths of a second, 32 is good though I prefer my 20 :)

I think the DBSTalk community should build out its own fiber network to all of its loyal users :D

Internet2, possibly. 0 ping isn't possible, but less than 1ms is possible

I love when I download things from other I2 institutions. Pulling down 4 gig Linux ISOs in less than 8 minutes is always fun.

I felt the need to run some speed tests tonight because of what appeared to be a problem. Apparently speed through my ISP Comcast was not the issue:

Time Warner outside or Portland, ME. Pay for 15 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up. Generally get the up, but not sure on the down speed because I have their turbo, so every speed test I do says I get like 30 Mbps down. I have seen it hit and stay at 1.6 MBps down on some torrents though (LEGAL torrents lol).

I was so skeptical of what life would be like when Fairpoint bought Verizon's assets in NH/VT/ME - including their Fios fiber assets. I'd signed up for Fios before they even advertised it in our area - September 2006.

I just got upgraded to 30/15 from 15/2 for $5/mo cheaper than I'd been getting and Speedtest.net is backing that up.

I've always been happy with my download speed, I just wish upload was faster.

Same here. I have the 12m/896k tier.

we're waiting for CentruryLink to upgrade us from ADSL2+ to VDSL2. Once that happens we'll have up to 40Mbps down(40M/20M/12/7.5/1.5) and 20Mbps up (20M/5M/896k) available

I should post mine.. I recently got an offer to upgrade from FairPoint (formerly Verizon Fios).

I *was* paying $50/mo for 'naked' Fiber - 15/2
Now I'm paying $45/mo for 30/15

On top of that, they apparently had to do some equipment upgrades somewhere in the loop (my neighborhood was amongst the first that Verizon strung with fiber in the area). So it ended up costing them money (in labor) while I now save $60/year.

Speedtest.net backed up their claims. I was very skeptical of FairPoint when Verizon sold out to them but it's been a VERY good experience.
