Hi :flowers:

What is you internet connection specs? Post all of your internet connection specs and vote in the poles :trumpet: Copy the text int the code box for a template :inlove:

If you need help determining your speed etc. Try Broadband Speed Test - CNET

[b]Carrier:[/b]
[b]Plan type:[/b]
[b]Connection type:[/b]
[b]Speed:[/b]
[b]Transfer Rate:[/b]
[b]Monthly cost:[/b]

Here are mine:

Carrier: Optus
Plan type: OptusDSL Sprint
Connection type: DSL
Speed: 512Kbps
Transfer Rate: Varies from 300Kb to 400Kb
Monthly Data Allowance 2Gb in Peak times + 4Gb Bonus in Off-Peak times = Total of 6Gb Monthly Downloads
Monthly cost: $39.95 ($10 Discount due to Optus Bundle)

We can see who has the best plan in general and have a sort of competition of who has the fastest connection etc :thumbsup:

David

Carrier: PersonaInternet
Plan type:Hi speed (apparently unlimited)
Connection type: Cable
Speed:~1MB (never get it tho)
Transfer Rate: ~ 500KB (never reach this tho)
Monthly cost: ~ 40 bucks/month

I also note that my ISP seems to have fair bit of troubles at times -- disconnects sometimes several times/day and it takes forever to get anyone to check things out unless 1/2 the town is out. :thumbsup:
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!

For dessert; can I have a bowl of the freshest worms you have please?.

Connection type: Cable
Speed: 7 megabits down / 512 kilobits up
Transfer Rate: 896 kilobytes down / 64 kilobytes up

I really want to get Verizon FIOS, apparently it's only $49.99 or so a month and you can get up to 15 megabits down! But you only get 768kilobits up! I want a massive upload.. needed for gaming and seeding. I am sharing fanantic for new releases of linux distro's. I've already downloaded the RC of 8.04 for Ubuntu and seeded it for 3 days (or so).

Up 883/down 331
I'm using Embarq (a bastard child of Sprint) for 29 bucks a month.
I'm happy with it for now since I use the computer mostly for research (school/work).
intelligence has far fewer practical applications than I thought.

Carrier: Cogeco Cable
Plan type: Standard (High-speed)
Connection type: Cable
Speed: 9 megabits down / 512 kilobits up
Transfer Rate: 1095 kilobytes down / 62 kilobytes up
Monthly cost: $39.95 with Television, 44.95 by itself

Up speed is crap, down speed is crap using bittorent on a wireless router, can anyone PM me a little help, tried forwarding the ports and doesn't seem to want to work.

Test was taken at 10:18am also my limit is 60 gigs combined download and upload, yes that is 60 and didn't make a typo.

Carrier:Smithville Telephone
Plan type:Huh?
Connection type:Dialup
Speed:56 Kbs according to the modem
Transfer Rate:Varies depending on weather and line conditions. Sometimes 0
Monthly cost:$20.95/mo.

If you need help determining your speed etc. Try Broadband Speed Test - CNET


Unless I miss my guess, that doesn't work for testing Dial-up speeds. How can we check that?
