    Default Internet Connection

    I'm trying to get a feel for what sort of speeds everyone is experiencing...

    Could you all run this speed test and then post your speed and connection if you dont mind...just copy and paste your results like this:

    2002-08-07 01:13:14 EST: 2188 / 372
    Your download speed : 2188108 bps, or 2188 kbps.
    A 267.1 KB/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 372347 bps, or 372 kbps.
    Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!

    Shaw Cable (Shared with another computer)


    Here is the speed test link:

    Your upload speed is much faster than down.. have you tweaked?

    That's odd... Though it would explain why I'm getting pages loaded so damn slow.

    You're telling me. Telus has been so F*cked. I've called a couple of times and they just give me the run around. What I can do about it? Aside from bitching constantly.

    Telus bites. Even Shaw provides a more reliable connection.

    Since it's a java applet it can be tricked so...
