Default Internet Connections

I have just upgraded my broadband connection and were wondering what kind of speeds people around the world were enjoying. I now have a 3mb connection through broadband....

What about you??? and where are you?

Well, welcome to the future!!!!!

Too bad it won't last, cause a new way to surf the net is around the corner.......and from what i read, its 1,000 times faster than broadband. Check out Maximum PC.......read all about it.

go to www.dslreports.com and you can do a speed and tweak test. I also reccomend you d/l a program called Dr. TCP. This allows you to change your in and output setting to maximize your performance. On my wireless laptop with cable, I get over 2500 d/l consistently.

Your download speed : 2600466 bps, or 2539 kbps.
A 317.4 KB/sec transfer rate.

That is with one roommate having about twelve BitTorrents going, and the other playing World of Warcraft. Still respectable!
