Question How fast is your connection?

I was wondering how fast other person's broadband connection.

When I first got my DSL I was getting around 690kbps. But after they fixed the phone lines in my neighborhood my speed instantly doubled my connection speed.

Currently I am getting 1200kbps.

I am using Verizon DSL, guarenteed to be 384kbps minimum. So I am definitely getting my money's worth.

What's yours?

Seems to think I am getting only 182Kbps

however the simple speed test, tells me that my speed is averaging roughly 600Kps (which it should be as that the speeds I pay for)

You can find the simple speed test here
