    But the test is under 50 miles.

    I can test my home network, my furthest PC is like 90 feet away and I would get 1000 Mb/s down & up.

    Most people would get 100 Mb/s Up & Down on their home network.

    I'd like to see what Sherardp would get if he tested 4 locations like I did above.

    Sal, I am not sure why the test distance is so important. I figured the only thing that mattered was how fast your connection to your ISP was on your primary PC. What does speed on a home network have to do with my internet connection speed?
    Not trying to break your shoes, I just don't know what you were implying with those different tests, that's all. I mean, wouldn't you want the fastest [possible] speed you could get?

    As requested. I did some speedtest to various regions far away from me to see what my connection would do. Not bad. I think many of you guys have good speed results as well, but I understand for the really fast stuff there is a premium to be paid in the USA. Next month Japan will release it's true 1GB fiber line for home use so I should be upgrading here shortly as it becomes available. Imagine that.............that should scream.

    Not trying to break your shoes, I just don't know what you were implying with those different tests, that's all. I mean, wouldn't you want the fastest [possible] speed you could get?

    The closer you are to your testing area the faster the speed will be.

    Who cares how fast my connection is if I am viewing website hosted in NJ.

    I want to know how fast my connection will be if I am viewing a website in CA, or downloading from an ftp site in Italy.

    That is a true test of an ISP, one that can give you 20Megs from any point in the world.


    I just spoke about the home network speeds because some people don't realize that 20Megs from Verizon Fios is only 1/5 the speed that you get on your home network.

    That internet speeds for the general public have not met the speeds of internal networks.

    If you copy a file from your daughter's pc to your pc in your house over a wired network you are copying it at 100megs

    If you copy a file from an ftp site in NYC then most likely you are copying it at 2Megs or less. There's a Big difference.

    In order to get the fastest speeds at a longer distance it will go to the company who owns the most fiber in their backbone, and in the US that is Verizon, and then AT&T.

    Here is what I get. First one is to washington although when I am downloading software from the evil empire I am actually no where close to this.




    Figure this is close to ESPN's host site for ESPN360



    Just and extra test.

    I was in the DC area for a couple of weeks. Here is one test I ran (wireless) while I was there at my sister's house in Silver Spring MD:

    OK, I can understand a little better now, thanks for the info !

    Just for the Hell of it, I tried the connection test to other sites around the globe, and sure enough, much slower results, even from the main PC in my living room (wired connection). I guess that's why sometimes my daughters' linkups to Club Penguin is sometimes pathetically slow, even though other sites come up in a matter of seconds.

    Club Polk is usually pretty quick, though, I guess it's close by? :)

    Or because for the most part it's all text? It's not very graphic intensive and will usually load quickly on any non dial-up connection.

    My phone loads it up in a matter of seconds even :)

    It appears to me that I have maxed out the test server, since I know that the connection speed is actually higher than that :P.

    Nice Speed, try testing at various other locations that are farther away.

    Are you at work?

    How much does that connection cost?
