Readers Respond: How Fast Is Your Internet?

Responses: 65


From the article: Internet Speed Test Sites

Internet speed tests are fun, and even useful, but they're so much better when you can brag about your awesome one or cry about your sad one!

Let the world know how amazing (or pathetic) your connection to the Internet is by leaving the results of your speed test below.

Please let me know what Internet speed test you used, what ISP you have, and what download and upload speed was recorded... preferably in Mbps but I don't care as long as you specify!

Verizon from 2005

We get a download of about .17mbps and an upload of about .32 usually. But my mom doesn't understand any of it so she won't upgrade. We got it in November of 2005 and haven't upgraded.

Speed Test Results

I'm getting an average of 5.5 mbs download and 800k upload speed on Att's DSL network. I used a html tool called SpeedTestResults.com

BT adsl broadband in rural Scotland has never been good

Verizon DSL intentionally slow

Download is .13 Mbps and upload is .72 and I personally think Verizon is intentionally slowing down their DSL speed in an attempt to force people to switch to FIOS. I haven't had cable for more than 20 years, but I would switch to Comcast before FIOS simply because of Verizon's underhanded tactics.

Great list of sources, but I have a ?

I'm getting DLS of 8mbps which is feasible considering the placement of routers and housing, but the gauge is showing the needle jump up and stay at speeds of 24mbps+ I don't get it. It's only happening while pinging one of the servers, but one I'm used to. My advice is run test from multiple websites, even if they are all powered by Ookla, more or less. From what I've been able to gather though is: -ISP:Comcast, Denver, CO -Wireless, through a repeater (Asus RT-N12): *IPv4 (IPv6 only through the gateway) Ping: 13 ms DLS: 17.68Mbps (Peak: 20.98) ULS: 5.66Mbps (Peak: 6.21) -Wireless, through the Comcast Gateway (ARRIS TG862): *IPv4 Ping: 13ms DLS: 28.76Mbps (Peak: 28.92) ULS: 5.88Mbps (Peak: 6.35) *IPv6 Ping: 17ms DLS: 8.75Mbps (Peak: 27.61)
