Connection speed

  1. I was just wondering how good my connection speed is. I recently went to and did 4 tests of my internet connection and this is what turned out.

    Test 1

    4763 kbps download
    457 kbps upload

    Test 2
    4830 kbps download
    436 kbps upload

    Test 3
    4815 kbps download
    444 kbps upload

    Test 4
    4840 kbps download
    449 kbps upload

    I live in Canada and my ISP is Shaw Communications (cable connection) and i have the d-link Dir 655 router. The numbers showing in my tests are they good or are they bad? I do alot of online gaming (mostly Playstation 3) are those good numbers good for gaming and for just general internet use?

    Thanks, Ryan

    Where abouts in canada? Different provinces cap and restrict speeds respectively.

    What time of the day? Chances are your speeds will be higher in non-peak times.

    In general your speeds are very good.

    Average speeds are about half what you're getting. I live in BC, Canada as well and I'm getting 2100 dl and 143 ul during peak time.
