the WiMax Forum plans to begin certifying products under its WiMax Release 2 specification in the fourth quarter of [2011]. Samsung has said its tests of pre-standard 802.16m equipment achieved a downstream speed of 330M bps. Though that was in a test setting with no other users competing for bandwidth, it still represents a big jump beyond today's WiMax, which typically gives individual users 3M bps to 6M bps, with bursts up to 10M bps, according to Clearwire. Verizon has demonstrated its LTE network at 5M bps to 12M bps in the real world.

Hoping to get a discussion going here on bleepingcomputer.com where I can sit back and learn - if I can keep up with the conversations. Admittedly, I don't know a whole lot - I only know what's "fast" by reading e-zine articles. So if you'd like to comment on the above quote, specifically, on the speeds mentioned, it'll help me learn. Thank you in advance. whiaguru

I just got a 3.11 a few minutes ago which got a "D" rating, meaning 70 percent of all other U.S. connections are faster. Sad. :mellow: http://speedtest.net/result/1203702813.png what's 15 ms ping?

what's 15 ms ping?

in milliseconds the length of time it took for a packet sent to the IP requested and a response. So in this case, fifteen milliseconds from your computer to the earthlink speedtest server and back to your computer.

Webopedia definition of ping: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/P/PING.html for reference.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
