Speakeasy and speedtest.net get the same results.

Download Speed: 20770 kbps (2596.3KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 3162 kbps (395.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

ha! read this and weep....



im on Virgin Medial 512kps ADSL, and i live less than 100m (109 Yds) from a telephone exchange - and they offer 8Mb and cant deliver on 512kps ha!

This is why there is a debate in the Uk about upgrading the broadband network - and looking to control how ISP's can advertise their speeds.

Speeds that are nice, and ping that I cannot even dream of.

When I refresh a server browser to a game, the ping is, at the lowest, 55-60. And those servers are few and far between. The ping just gets higher from there on out.

Uh, this tends to happen quite a bit now and then. A thread that has just posts of speeds/test results/etc gets locked at some point. Not sure who it was but I can dig for it in the logs if you want.
