Rules:
1) Go to speedtest.net (But, if you already knew that, skip this rule)
2) Do the test thing
3) Post your result here.

Ok, ready set, GO!

Here's mine:


I'm from Shawnee, Oklahoma and there is no server in Oklahoma, so that's why it's so slow. Although, my internet cord is 100 mbps.

Mecha always did have the biggest internet cock of anyone I knew…



That's my first test. My ISP limits me to 8 Mps anyway. And the upload is pathetic. the top speed is more than that though.

Updated. Teeny bit faster today but not as fast as the “max” it's meant to be.

Haha! I hate my internet.
Download: 283 kb/s
Upload: 267 kb/s

And my neighbour's (unprotected) internet…
Download: 2918
Upload: 1021

Well now, this is a dilemma.

For now. I'm in a dorm network. It is the weekend so everyone is still asleep or not on. It gets down right terrible during the weekdays.

I think we have fiberoptic. I remember someone accidentally cut it a year ago. The whole campus was down for two days.

She said she was in a dorm so it's probably the fastest most expensive service they can provide.

I use Clearwire and mine's about 750kbps down, 300-something kbps up (from memory, the last time I did a speedtest). It's for a very basic and reasonable plan! I'm gonna upgrade the plan once I secure a new job because the internet keeps making things that make me desire speed.

Ah, let me do it again now. From my laptop and through a wireless router:

761/331. Consistency~!

I can't believe I used dial-up for ten years…

I don't have neighbors to mooch off of, BOO. And if I did they'd all probably have crappy internet.

dorms have like crazy T5 billion or something to accomodate the thousands of people. :P


edit: another test to a server near my hometown which isn't that far compared to the other server.


i also felt like testing out a server across the US

I just remembered we have a “internet at night twice as fast” thing going on for the next few weeks, so I did a second test.



Sure, the speeds aren't the greatest, but it's a fairly solid company and they rarely have any downtime (last month for a day and before that somewhere around summer).

The furtherest from you is here??? O_o
And even THIS far you get faster upload than me :)

My test to the place that looked furtherest away to me:



And to the U.S. somewhere…



That's not bad considering it's all away around the globe.
