I literally went to check my speed just for laughs and got this.


After I laughed at that stupidity, I refreshed the site and actually got my speeds.

...surprisingly decent uplink I gotta say.

Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.







That one guy who writes LBT fanfiction and accidentally makes them five times longer than he'd originally intended.

Zero-point, do you know how many rural areas here in the US would kill for that kind of speed?  Most rural areas are stuck with either dial-up or worse, HughesNet. *shudders*

Videos keep buffering but they usually don't; I'll have to retest when they don't buffer every 30 seconds.   :sducky

^ I can attest. When I’m not at college, I’m in a semi-rural area outside one of the main cities in my state, and the best Internet service we can get isn’t even as good as what zero-point has (albeit WAY better than dial-up or HughesNet, which are indeed the only options in many parts of my state) :sducky

Here's the result from the hotel I'm staying at.



For a hotel, I'm impressed.  I wasn't expecting something this good.

Internet for the beach house we are staying at near the Oregon Coast.



Not as good as I would like, but not actually bad.

I'm testing a new modem.  I'll talk about it in another thread when I'm done testing.  Here's the test speed.



That Ping definitely could use some improvement. :rhett_ohsnap

Edit: Back to my current modem.



Hmm... The two are an interesting comparison.

Hello, everyone!  I'm messaging from a certain location I'll talk about in another topic.

For now, here's the test speed of our internet connection here.



This is incredibly good.  Especially for what we plan to do with the place in question.

New modem means new connection test! 

First test, via Ethernet Cable!



Pretty good, if I do say so myself!

Edit: Looks like it's the same without the Ethernet Cable.



Never had it so good. :cerasmug

Woo hoo! D minus! Alright!



I'm living in a small apartment in San Francisco. The internet is constantly shutting out and I have to leech my neighbor's NETGEAR.

I'm glad I once posted in this thread so I can now compare it to my modern setup. Eight years later I've moved across four different states, two different countries and around 9 different cities, and have finally settled down as an archivist/video editor who uploads hundreds of GB of files daily, so I needed kickass internet. 2013 me would be so jealous!

My new fiber-optic connection is a huge improvement from my old cable connection.  One of the many advantages from my move.


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Menders Tale.

I got a free upgrade!  Time for a test!

Speedtest is down at the moment, but I tried the main site for my IP and got this after a reset.
