September poll: What is your Internet connection download speed?
« on: September 01, 2010, 08:01:18 AM »
For the month of September, we thought it would be fascinating to see what everyone's Internet connection speed is and maybe give everyone a place to brag about their Internet connection or envy others fast connections. If you want to test your Internet speed, I suggest using Speedtest. In addition to voting about your Internet connection speed feel free to post your results like my below example.

All past monthly polls and results can also be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.

    Using a cron job to test my broadband speed every 30 mins from http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html I see that my broadband speed didn't drop below 12Mb/s on Saturday

    NB: speeds listed in megabytes not megabits. Assuming a couple of stop bits with every byte then I guess you need to multiply by 10 to convert.

    Oddly, Calum and I are both on Virginmedia cable, but my speed test showed my ISP as "Telewest Broadband", a name which has been obsolete for quite a while, Feb 2007 to be exact.

    It really sucks being on the west coast of Africa but, in a little over a week I will be home and if I can remember will test again from there.
