Check Your Internet Speed Here And Compare

Wed Jan 24, 2007 2:49 pm

I just got the Charter bundle for phone service, cable and internet. I think there are people on here who will have two times (or more) the speed I'm currently getting through my MSNTV unit but I'd like to know where you all stand, even dial-up users weigh in.

My Download Speed: 2895kbps

My Upload Speed: 233kbps

Check it at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and click on the closest major city to check it, for non-United States users I found it doesn't matter what city you click on, you'll get the same results.

How the hell can your upload speed be higher than the download speed? I thought download speeds are always higher than upload speeds. What's your ISP, because I want to sign up. Big grin

Business DSL is usually this way, thats how they differentiate from residential and are able to sell at a higher cost without incurring a higher cost. Business usually needs to upload more than download...go figure.

When I checked the site mentioned above, none of my stats passed 500 kbps. So, I did a google-search, and for non-US users, try this page: http://www.speedtest.net/

I checked with my nearest server, which is in Malmö.

Download: 15462kbps
Upload: 16721kbps

Pretty satisfying, considering I pay the equivalent of $7 a month...
