    I am not sure what you mean. Just go to one of the websites and pick the server closest to where you live. After that, let it do the test and post your results.

    DSL in the area is still at 768 kilobits/second download and there are no fiber services. Guess who everyone goes through for Internet.

    Give it a whirl, FMB - it's always fun to at least find out for yourself. ;)

    What is it with these people? This is not acceptable - as addicts of this community, it is a must for all of you to have fast speeds and no slowness in any way, shape, or form!

    My speed is much lower than a lot of yours, but I don't understand why; my internet is blazing fast. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I'm connected wirelessly to the router.

    Something must not be right though because Speakeasy's results are different:

    Download: 6.94 Mb/s
    Upload: 2.40 Mb/s

    Wow, Nick. I use Comcast as well and it is indeed blazing fast as you mentioned. The speed originally posted earlier in this thread (by me) is actually slower than what it usually is.

    Could be due to the fact that you are connected via a wireless connection.

    Yeah, I'll have to try it out on the master PC that is hardwired in and see if that makes a difference. :)
