Who can beat my Download speed?

  1. I spoke to OP a few weeks ago about colo in NYC. He's here somewhere and in a datacenter. I'm not sure what speeds he's paying for or what type of line he's on - Speedtest is about burst, not sustained and those odd #'s look like he's on a non-symmetrical line... but those numbers are legit, he just doesn't want us to know where his box is.

  2. Exactly latency. Denver to Chi is 56ms for me, that's acceptable, I don't tick scalp.

  6. I don't know what your experience is with speedtest.net. I have found it to be very accurate and reliable.

    I have a 50/50 symmetrical line and I get consistantly between 43 and 46 mbps up/down over and over and over.

    I also have a 300mbit symmetrical (three bonded 100meg lines) but each port on my switch is throttled back to 100mbit and I get consistantly between 96 and 98 on speedtest up/down over and over and over.

    Because of OP's odd numbers (odd being not in even increments of 100) I have to assume that his ISP is giving him a non-symmetrical line on a shared trunk. If he had a dedicated symmetrical circuit they are sold in increments of 100mbps and he would be putting up very close to what he is paying for.

    Considering that he is probably not pulling or pushing more than 15-20mbps burst or sustained, anything over 100mbps is overkill for one server (but nice to have if you need a quick download).

    The only other way to test what your sustained download/upload speeds are is to move large files. I move 3-5GB per day between machines with my home 50/50 being the slower connection and I always push/pull around 45mbps sustained for 3-5 minutes. I would assume that with the speeds OP posted he would be able to do considerably better.

    U.S. Internet Speed Slows Compared To Other Countries: Report

    i told you that long time ago-telecom in US is ridiculously overpriced,compare to any other world country. wireless services -it just doesn't make any sense. in the rest of the world-you can connect any phone to any provider.not in US.long contracts,high prices...slow. you name it-US have it. so much for a "leader of free world"..
    and now they about to merge 2 big one into a one even bigger.
    wait until that comcast monster scream one day-too big to fail! nation's network will be at risk!
    for f** sake-paying almost $400 A MONTH! for phone family plan, tv and internet i can't even change 5 years old box remote control for free. it's f** 15 bucks!
