Found a new more interactive connection test, at http://speedtest.net

It has many useful features, such as remembering how many test your IP has did, then computes and average for you. Then it will show you if you are at your national average and even global average. It is very informative to the point of finding out what the average connection speed is in certain countries and continents.

Quick reminder about bits and bytes: 1 byte = 8bits, 1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes, 1 kilobit = 1024bits, 1 megabit = 1024 kilobit, and 1 megabyte is 1024 kilobytes.

Especially seeing the top 5 fastest countries!

Listed in kilobits per second (which if you are downloading in IE or FF you would see something a lot smaller. That number you are seeing is in kilobytes.)
Japan 9535d 3736u
Sweden 7152d 2526u
Latvia 6111d 2320u
Romania 5300d 2908u
Liechtenstein 5042d 1232u

Top 5 ISP's
Prov.RU 23678d 11343u
SIA CITYNET 20517d 11176u
SC Cyberspace Network SRL 20448d 15666u
DREAM TRAIN INTERNET,Inc. 20212d 7410u
Megalan Network Ltd 20087d 7810u

I use TimeWarner Road Runner and my new limit now it 512kilobits upload which is 64kilobytes per second up. Which is still pretty fast for me, but imaging uploading at 1417kilobytes! That's about 1.5Megabytes per second up! (which a T1 is 1.544 megabits which in kilobytes is 197!


So run the test and post your results!


*Note about speeds to convert from kilobits per second to kilobytes per second you simply divide by 8. If you ISP says you max internet connection is 7megabits/second (which is USA's max connection speed for Roadrunner; recently increased from 5mb/s to 7mb/s) you would see 7168kilobits as your max theoretical speed. As for the download speed you would see it would be 7168/8 =kilobytes.

Hi Yano,

Just ran the test and here are the results:

Download - 415 kbls
Upload - 472 kbs
Latency - 96ms
Distance <50ml
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Not only that, but also what time is it. Like if a lot of people are using the internet in your area (if your line is shared).

EDIT:
Here are my results:

:thumbsup: Do you have DSL or Cable? If so do you normall experience slow times during the day? Especially the evening? (or whenever it's "down-time" where you live.. I'm guessing, Germany?)

If you have an old-cable company you might have a shared line. If you have DSL, the chances are actually lower, however in Europe I don't know.

Hi,
I do not think that we really have cable here in Germany. Afaik its all dsl or vdsl atm. I have dsl "upto" 16000 line. The company is not old either. It is a fairly young company and has so many customers in my city because of good offers that i have heard rumors of having several phone/dsl lines on one "cable" rather than one for each. so dunno :thumbsup: mhhm doesnt matter really. I am happy the way it is.

I am going to start a fund up so you all can donate monthly to help me get speeds like that ha ha.

I get like max 43kbps upload is like 19 or 20kbps

Wish I had the money. I am sitting soooo close to a exchange box for dsl that the tech guy said I could get a 3mb down and 1mb up for 120 bucks a month if needed.
