Have you ever wondered if your isp is delivering what they promise to?  Take the speedtest challenge!  Test your internet speed by going Here:

Click!

Here's my current speed.  My ISP is not delivering when it comes to upload though. <_<




I might have made a post like this before, but I couldn't find it.  Maybe that was on another forum though.  I can't remember. :)

The post you are most likely referring to is the topic here (yes, I keep track of this stuff, so what? :p ).

That is faster then my slow dsl, though I expected mine to be slow since its slow dsl.  

download: 658
upload: 303

ping: 227ms
distance: ~100 miles

Sorry for the no image, but I can't seem to get images to work.

Sadly, in some places faster internet is either super expensive or just not available.  I know Action can't get much faster than what he has unless he pays a lot of money.  I am fortunate to be able to get my super fast speeds of 26mbps download and 12mbps upload for less than $200, but in some more rural areas, that would cost about a thousand dollars a month if they even had it.

Download: 4500 kbps
Upload: 512 kbps.

Ya, i remember doing this, and my results are pretty close to my previous test.

For some reason it doesn't let me connect to Calgary anymore, i dunno why, its ~50miles closer then Kelowna.

I seem to fare well with the connection provided by the university.

Guess Time Warner sucks in comparison. :p  As I said earlier in the other post, not much choice here.

It varies from 7 MB per second to 9 MB per second.

I decided to see what this site would think of my dial-up internet connection.

This is crackpot baloney. If I'm doing nothing else, my downloads average 2.7 Kbps, and my uploads are something less. :p

Kansas City which is the closest spot to me on this map
to Japan

to Male, which seems to be the farthest place from my hometown on that map

to Perth (seemed pretty far as well)
to NYC, because I'm addicted

Your download isn't too bad, but your upload is terrible! :o 88kps?  I'd be on the phone to my ISP that instant!  Do another test and if it's lower than 300kps, you need to call your ISP.  That's not right...

Here's the speed on wireless:



Not surprisingly, it's lower than my wired speed.  Wireless is never as fast or reliable as wired. :)

Unless it was because it couldn't accurately read my dial-up, this test didn't do mine accurately. Still, that's a pretty large gap between his download and upload speeds. Mabey he should do a test upload of some sort to see what his real speed is.

Austin, what if lain has no choice?  You can't complain then for whatever you get.  I'm sure that's not entirely accurate.  (I can tell you Manny's isn't accurate if that's a dial up connection. ;) )

I'm just saying that that ratio of upload to download is not normal and should be checked.  I'm not trying to bash anyone's internet or ISP. :unsure:

According to the site, Lain_EX's internet connection has a download speed twice that of my dial-up, but he has an upload speed that is less than half of my uploads, which are the fastest on dial-up *cough*. Yeah. I might not so quickly count those figures as true, unless, as I stated before, it did my test wrong because I used a different internet connection than it expected.
