Not the best I've seen on speakeasy, I've seen as high as 16 on a good day.

This is over wireless :)

There is more to file downloading than your network speed.
In addition to overall network traffic there is the file server itself.

The fastest you can get starts at the server, if it's only sending you the file at 30Kb, nothing you do can make it faster.

I checked mine again.



I can live with that.

ok thanks kc, that makes sense, I was confused why it is that it wouldn't fluctuate at all and it only stayed at 30kbps

Sad this is that I'm in Houston and at Speedtest.net the ping to the Houston test server is almost twice as much as the one to Dallas. Hell I got better ping time to Chicago

finally got MTS at our place :) and with it, we got high speed (or at least compared to my old speed) my only complaint being it took me about 20 minutes to figure out that I gotta get the code from the top box to work my TV :/ besides that I am in a good mood :) (actually better, because I feel accomplished that I finally figured out the remotes)

769.8 kbps
on cnet

2364 kbps download
680 kbps upload
on speakeasy

and I downloaded from garrysmod.org before and it peaked at 30kbps but now I peak at 270kbps!

correction, while downloading off of steam, my peak was 288.7 kbps

There's always a work around ;)

Man is Cox Cable taking me for a ride....
$179 a month for phone/TV/Internet.

Phone:
Just a basic land line with caller ID and I can make long distance calls at a minimal rate but seldom use it.

TV:
OK, I have a killer 2 receiver HD DVR TV on one, regular 2 channel DVR on another, and a 3rd box + a special channel tear for some other channels but no Pay Channels like HBO.

Internet:
Granted I suck some bandwidth...
I stream audio and video and have 2 roommates tapping in via wireless router and I get 'pretty good' bandwidth.



Still, I remember having good Phone, TV and Internet for $97 a month so what the *^$('s up with that?
