    My internet is going to be cut back to 5Mbps as the 15Mbps was a trial thanks to Verizon's new FiberOptic Service "FiOs". It's a lot quicker than what I used to have; 2.5-3.0Mbps :giddy:

    Ooh, I think Bell South would be related to the old Bell Telephone, which split and formed your service, mine, and a few others....I think....(I've had 2 members of my family work at them).

    Where'd you get that chart analysis Howard?

    And Chicago is further away...
    At home it is going to be even worse. Sure I'd like to have faster, but I can still get 700meg torrents in a couple hours at home so its not too bad.

    Wait, wtf? Empty image? I tried it again and it put a blurry red-outlined box over the bottom part and it's counting on a counter?!?! WTF?

    My dad is streaming some video right now (using a router) so it's a bit lower, before I believe it counted up to 11k.

    Just did it again when he wasn't doing anything:

    Thats crazy fast there Papa! I take it your office uses a fibre connection?

    [​IMG]

    I'm actually kind of disappointed in our connection speed here at work, though it could be low due to the fact that it is Friday afternoon and we have 2000+ associates. We do use mulitple fibre connections here and if I remember correctly our standard connection is 40MB (not Mb) and can scale up to 80MB as demand dictates.

    Here is my home speed. Not bad considering I pay for 4Mb of service. Upload speed bugs me, though.

    Do you have cable? Since cable customers share a line on the same street, when people are using it at the same time, the speed goes down :mad: .

    this one's beatiful...the upload speed surprised me though. I was thinking that with the download speed so slow I don't even wanna see it upload...but it wasn't too bad.
