Hmmm...OOL usually averages 5 to 10 mbit down, must be my older (3com Sharkfin) modem. I've gotten as much as 1.5 mb/s on a very fast server, but for like 10-15 seconds before it goes down to 300-400 kb/s.

you realize that's probably because browsers download files while you're selecting a spot for them to be copied to, but don't take the amount or time dled into consideration for the k/s calculations. So your browser thinks you've been downloading for 0 seconds yet you have a certain percentage of the file (more than 0) so it thinks you've just dled it really fast. The constant and consistant speed of dl is what you're actually getting from that server

The test doesn't seem to be working. Might be because I'm seeding three BitTorrents right now, two at ~50 kb/s up.

Stupid American-based testing thing. I only got 23kb/sec, yet I can download at around 500kb/sec from Australian hosts.

227 over 50. But whatever works. All I care about is that I can download a 26 episode anime series in less than a day, which gives me something to watch when I'm bored. Aside from that, I don't really take advantage of it.

I'll tell you it's too low, and yay. :P

I'd be better off with dial-up. I have Charter Cable.

Am I the only one here that has free, and I mean FREE, internet access? I'm at UT Dallas, and I interface with their wireless network.

Not as fast as the cable modem I used to have back at home, sadly, but still a lot faster than that stone-age dial-up ;)

no, my t3 was 'free' except not really because staying in the dorms does cost money and it's in the cost somewhere.

i always think it's funny when people say something is 'free' when it's bundled into something else. e.g. 'free public transportation' when you're really paying quite a bit as part of your taxes.

it says 431-459kbps down and 134kbps up.

Whereas dslreports gives me 511 down (I'm on 512k cable) and 110 up. I think the dslreports one is more accurate, as I know I can download faster than 56kb/sec.

Odd...I often download at 1.8m/sec rather than 896k/sec

Edit: I retested about 6 times, and each time it said this:

You need to RE-TEST my friend, there is no way you scored that high, dont worry... This is most likely a server-side error, or somehow the test is in your browser cache... if you have this problem repeatedly please post in the FORUM under "HELP" for help :) ---- all scores over 8000 kbps are kicked out!

Well, I used the term "free" in the common sense. You do have a point. As economists say, TINSTAAFL (There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch)...
