Had T3 a while ago, we are supposed to be getting it again. I have dual 6Mb Cable right now, so shotgunned around 11.2Mb because of the lost down speeds from the networking card interface and synthetic combination.

The Cox Cable speed test is not supposed to be open to the public. This speed test is for INSTALLERS and PROFESSIONALS to see what the true speed of someones internet is. It has NO ads, they make NO money, and they dont ask for you to PAY for a subscription to the service.

So yeah, I hate to tell you, its the REAL speed test not some ><test that makes you THINK your speed is fast. Most tests dont even have an upload test.

Sorry, but another forum was whining and such. And 20 mbps
