Re: Who has the fastest internet connection?
AMD ZEN, the test is not about download speed but about bandwidth. For example a 56k modem would be thought to be 56k but it is lower, and the download speed is usually the bandwidth divided by 8 max. So a 56k modem downloads at around 6.0 max; unless you know the PCAnywhere trick and apply the at&fx to your modem string.
In my case for example if I get ~ 6000 bandwidth, I download generally in the 750 K/s range; but I can buff at dl start-up to over 1000. The same applies to the upload speed; if I get ~ 840 bandwidth, I upload at ~ 105 K/s (840/8).
Downloading and uploading a lot large files (700 > 850 Meg), my internet connection is probably my most important component .
