    Here's an updated one from my work

    Look at the distance and the latency... Nice to be part of the Internet isn't it :D

    Last night at home. Decent, however it looks like I need a faster router as I'm using the old one from before the speed upgrade. I'm thinking a gigabit router with the USB port that is also a NAS through the USB port.

    I used the snipping tool from win7 since I wanted a pictorial record for comparison purposes.

    It all depends on the moment. Note that these are one minute apart, ping and upload are about the same.

    At work:

    [​IMG]

    It's a 100/100 line, fiberoptic. Upload is lower because we have some guys downloading engineering drawings from our FTP at 10 Mbit/s. And of course the line is used for other traffic as well.... whatever an office of 200 can generate. It is quiet now, so it tests well.

    And then, at home:

    [​IMG]


    That is a U-Verse 24 down, 3 Mbps up connection. Not being used very heavily at the moment.... I have 2 HD receivers connected to it using the Ethernet connector, 2 wired PC's, 2 laptops, and our wifi phones. My wife is on her laptop just browsing the net right now.

    I am thinking I cannot complain about speed issues. Work for sure, but I don't use that line for any private stuff..... The U-Verse 24/3 is the fastest I can get where I live as a non-business.

    Just changed from ATT 6MB dsl this week to local cable 12/2. So far, no complaints.

    You might want to try a different server. I have better results than to the "recommended" server. Try speedtest.qwest.net as well.

    I added FIOS TV to my house today and they bumped up the speed of my Internet. I've been running speed and ping tests all day and I have to say as usual I am impressed!

    I've always been impressed with their speed, reliability and consistency of their connection. I can't imagine it will be any different with a few Mb / Sec More :)

    Yet another test this morning... I hear they are now offering a 150mb / 50mb package somewhere. Imagine that :=)

    For whatever reason, the default this morning went to San Jose rather than San Francisco, but both are consistently slow. Palo Alto generally gives me download tests of 6.5 to 7.5 and for whatever reason going north to Coos Bay, Oregon, usually gives me something around 8.0.

    Going to the Ping Test it defaulted to San Francisco. Coos Bay was not an option, but Corvallis, Oregon was.

    I've never really understood the 'interwebs" and how it routes. All the tracert testing I've done to the Coos Bay, Oregon, Speedtest.net server company is pretty much like I would drive south on U.S. 101 180 miles to San Jose, then 560 miles northwest on I-680 to I-80 to I-5 to Eugene, Oregon, then 105 miles southwest on Oregon 126 to U.S. 101 to Coos Bay. That's a trip of 845 miles. Normally I would just drive 350 miles straight up U.S. 101 from Willits, California, to Coos Bay, Oregon. I realize that it's all done at the speed of light, but the routing still puzzles me and it doesn't seem to have any relationship to the Speedtest.net results.

    EDIT: And yet, I just got these results which makes me feel like none of it makes any sense:

    Something weird happened while I wasn't looking. My upload speeds have consistently nearly quadrupled:
