And I pay for 25mbps - I do have DSL and the telephone exchange near here is pretty old.

Wow that upload speed is beautiful.

    I used to have Verizon DSL, but switched to Comcast Cable several weeks ago. It may not be the fastest connection, but it sure is faster than DSL.

    For Comcast, that's somewhat slow on the download, pretty good on the upload.
    Try their "direct test":  http://speedtest.comcast.net/
    I have the lowest speed tier.

    In the poll, four people voted for 100+ Mbs, but nothing was posted about actual speeds.  I am curious if those speeds were real, or some one misunderstood the question, or just voted that way as a joke.

    DOCSIS 3.0
    Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS)
    Thanks, C-C , so it is available somewhere, some place. When you're in a location as I am(with no other feasible choices) that cannot even maintain 1 Mbs download, this just seems unfathomable, realizing that I'm paying much for what I'm receiving. overthehill

    The entire Comcast network will be DOCSIS 3.0 by the end of this year.  You pay extra for the faster speeds.

      I ran the test from Comcast that you recommended. I got much better results than last time.



      I've actually run several speed tests since I switched a couple weeks ago. Each time I've gotten better results than before.
