    There is a button to copy the url under the results. Just copy this then paste it into insert link box.

    Welcome to rural south Georgia. Still slow as ever on municipal wireless system. I pay for 768k which is the fastest residential service they allow. Never gets above 250kbps.

    okay, here's the speedtest for my office.

    6mbps is the fastest DSL we can get from bellsouth, and i have no need for a t-line.

    Here is my FiOS connection. I must say this is the best home service I have ever had. We have had FiOS for over a year with 0% downtime. I used to have Cox...well that would require another post!

    Here is my speed at work:

    We are supposed to get 30Mbps upload but something is strange on our core router.

    Comcast in my area was just upgraded last week and the now offer new faster services. Their old services they also upgraded the speeds. I still have the Comcast Blast service and my downloading went up a little but my upload went up a lot after the upgrade.

    Isn't internet speed one of the criteria of where you choose to live? ;)

    When I moved a couple of years ago I got as far east out of the city as I could where I still had cable internet and city water & sewer.

    Nothing amazing by any means, but I am very happy to just get an upgrade to this. Used to be stuck with 512/128 as I am on the edge of their service area:
