My internetz can beat up your internetz ! (in Off-topic)
April 16 2009 5:18 PM EDT
Taken from somebody else's thread about internet problems, the link...
Take a test with any of the "recommended servers" but at least 500 miles away from your location, preferably more.
Then post how much your internet connection COSTS and if you have any caps at all on it :)
I have a 10mbit/1mbit down/up ADSL from my provider.
But I have a crappy router and crappy phone line between them so I rarely hit anything above 7mbit/0.75mbit down/up, costs: ﾀ25 a month, which is a scam.

No upload/download caps, no throttling, fixed "in their network" phone included... and it costs 7 Euro/month (after all taxes).
Needless to say, I am quite happy with it.
University internet with optic fiber? that kinda screws up the results here.

Free university 'tube' doesn't really qualify :)
April 16 2009 5:29 PM EDT
Holy hell, JS, That really is OVER 9000!!!1!!1
at least my results are stable with no significant drop of mb/s even over a very long distance.
April 16 2009 5:48 PM EDT
JS u pay $40,000 a year for that. Most expensive Ive seen here :D
April 16 2009 5:57 PM EDT
But I'm currently at work. I expect my home computer to be a bit faster.

My university tuition costs more than his college tuition... >.>
And our internet sucks mad slow. And we have a 4gb download / 2gb upload per week cap.
April 16 2009 6:10 PM EDT
I'm in the same boat as JS. Costs $0, but with a big tuition fee... No caps on usage though
I'll retest later in the night when there are less people using the bandwidth.
April 16 2009 6:25 PM EDT
Was on my laptop through wifi. PC is hard wired will prob get better results
April 16 2009 6:47 PM EDT
Im not as good as most of you guys but hey I say not bad for a comp thrown together back in '03 :)
I'm at home now, but we just got a new line at work, and the speedtest results on average ~25meg/sec.

Glad to see the link is entertaining people. I'd post my results, but bittorrent is slowing my down to a crawl.

Bit varying results here, only minimal though
Right around the corner:
More than 500 miles
Why such a huge difference?
April 17 2009 3:39 AM EDT
Right around the corner might be a bottle neck with a very slow server (or intermediate connection) as opposed to further away.

35GB Day + 60GB Night caps.
$179.90 per month. This DOES include our home phone, though. I think it would be $140 or so without that.
Prices are in AUD. It's something like $130 in USD.
about 4Mps dl, and 0.1Mps ul. Costs about $50NZL per month
Damn thing doesn't have a server close enough to show off my latency... I see pings of around 16ms when playing counter-strike on about fifty different servers. I pay around $20 and have a static ip (that I'm too lazy to take advantage of). Seeing all those 20mb connections has me drooling... maybe I'll up this to 6 for a couple months to see if it's worth it.

60 a month and 100gb limit
April 17 2009 11:44 AM EDT
April 18 2009 5:54 AM EDT
This, for 5400 Yen per month, or around $50 USD. No caps either. The Japanese don't mess around w/ their Internet. :-D
I am not looking forward to the day when I return to San Francisco and my choice between Verizon & Comcast. *sigh*
And this is While I run two instances of diablo and other random programs on open ports
I so want to move to Norway... ;)

/me wonders which country downloads the most torrents and uses usenext the most?
April 19 2009 2:18 PM EDT
My guess ? Sweeden first, with Romania a close second :)
April 19 2009 3:09 PM EDT
In August I will camp at a camp site that has a 10Gb/s Internet connection :)
April 19 2009 5:33 PM EDT

The scary thing is that you'll be camping. Not going to a convention or anything..
I pay $50 AUD for my 4 Mb/S, I have an 18GB limit. Darn internet being cheap in everywhere but Australia.
April 19 2009 10:11 PM EDT
It's HAR2009, a convention on a camp site...
