So you think you're fast?

Wheeee, I'm average.



At least the ping doesn't suck.

$30 a month


See this is what I mean, 54Mbps for $30 is insane.

Not bad. Also, two days ago was approved the law of network neutrality here in Chile, we're the first country in the world to do so :D

Download: 3.92 Mb/s

Ping: 33 ms

Nominal download speed: 4 Mb/s
Nominal upload speed: 512 kb/s

I am quite happy with it except for stability issues, but this is due to dated infrastructure. They are upgrading it to optical, but it will take some time till it reaches my house.

My internets seem to be behaving themselves today, though it's obviously far from being "fast" by any standards. But quite often I can take these tests and barely achieve the 1MB/s mark.

Somewhat surprised at comcast's average rating compared to other companies. They've done some weird stuff to us in the past.

I'm more interested in latency (ms) than I am with download speed, as latency is more important in online gaming.

This is wacky - I'm currently getting a faster connection than I paid for.



EDIT - CORRECTION: Internode now have their own hardware in the local exchange, so I've been upgraded from 1500/256 to either uncapped ADSL or ADSL2+ and the tyranny of distance is now asserting itself. I can boost my download speed by 2-3% by switching from Wireless G to Cat5 but I'm not about to go chasing the law of diminishing returns by changing to a wired network - digging a cable trench across the backyard to my study isn't my idea of fun, especially with 3 metres of concrete in the way.
