I saw it on DSLReports.com in the comments on http://www.dslreport...Rankings-115983

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.
