I have Optimum Online Cable Internet

My Download is 3793KB/s and my upload is 976KB/s. I tweaked it once to have a 5MB/s download speed.

i live with my two friends and we use a lynksis wireless thingy throughout the house. right now the desktop icon says im at 11 megabytes per second

3 megabit down, 256k up

zzzzzz

slow...very, very slow....

3.5-4k down, dont know about up, but i think its faster....

just tell us, when u download a file from the web, how many kb or mb per sec maximum?...

nesman
July 28th, 2004, 00:14
The fastest I've downloaded was at 1.5MB/s

Spike
July 28th, 2004, 00:24
fastest was at around 1MBps, however my average is at 600KBps

Zach
July 28th, 2004, 01:13
just fyi

Megabit = Mb
Megabyte = MB

Kilobit = Kb
Kilobyte = KB

My fastest download was 10, 10.0 kb a sec, the it went back down to 3 :angry:

I know this is going to shame me forever to mention it... but where I live... in the middle of nowhere - the fastest connection I can get is 28.8 Kbps. I download at an average of 2.5 Kb.

And as if that didn't make me seem pathetic enough - I also download a Gig or two every month in... stuff of many sorts (appz, music, etc.) despite my connection.

...

... now everyone can outright accuse me of downloading gigs of porn... I know it's coming so I thought I'd just cover my bases... :lol:

YAY theres at least 1 person i download faster than on this forum! :D :P

I remember downloading the Wolfenstein 3D demo from AOL, on 2400 baud.

My fucking god... lol

Anybody know what the fastest Internet connection is?

Zach
July 28th, 2004, 14:20
Let me guess.

You know ?

nesman
July 28th, 2004, 16:09
I don't know, I was asking it as a question.

Guitar Gamer
July 28th, 2004, 17:23
I don't know... maybe something like a T3 line... if they exist. The military probably uses some insanely fast connection private to them much beyond what we can get a hold of.

Zach
July 28th, 2004, 18:15
T3's are nothing. Lots of websites are hooked up to multiple T3's

Theres tons of crap out there

btw.. heres fastest internet



Those who caught the announcement last week that researchers at Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC) had broken an Internet land-speed record might be forgiven for expressing a collective shrug. The SLAC'ers announced they had sent 6.7 billion bytes of data at a rate of 1 billon bits, or 1 gigabit, per second over 10,000 kilometers between Sunnyvale, California, and their collaborators at the NIKHEF institute in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with help from Caltech.

I think IBM has an internal 1 gigabit network

Thats 128MB per second, or 7.6 gigabytes per minute.

:huh: Holy flaming balls of crap. I'd kill to have me one of those lines. Then again who wouldn't.

Even if the speed degrades at all you're still pumping enough bits to never even notice. The fastest connection I have available to me is satellite - and that's buggy and slow... and stupidly priced. And there's a 3 GB bandwidth limit/month which is way too small for myself.

Zach

Gigabit connection... :ph34r:

56k... :angry: :(

5,5kb/sec is my fastest download...

some sort of fiber optic internet??

3mbps down 256kbps up

I don't know what my speed is but one things for sure, I can download enough songs to fill an Ipod in seconds.

Jet Set Willy
August 20th, 2004, 12:32
So, let's use a 20GB iPod as an example, and take "seconds" to mean 10 seconds:

20/10 = 2GB/s = 2048MB/s = 2097152KB/s = 16777216Kbps

So basically you're claiming to have the fastest Internet connection on Earth. I think you're either telling porky pies, or getting confused about the difference between the Internet and simply downloading files from your hard disk to your iPod via USB (even so... "seconds"?).

Zidane

Well overkill is what I do best, but no really they never told ne the spped so I can't reaaly be too positive so i'm gonna say its as fast as I need it to be.
And it generally takes a few minutes to get a song from the net to my hard disk, and it also gennerally depends on the people your downloading from, right?

Max DL/UL speeds in Kb: 349.x/112.x through Shaw Broadband.

Can you imagine I only got this for less than 2 years? Before that, I used 14.7/4.8 through Shaw Narrowband, and even before that (before 11/2002) 4.7/4.7 through Sprint Canada. I mean, I uploaded 100meg files using dial-up, almost every few days!

Don't you think that's disgusting? 8/

Badger

Until broadband got enabled I couldn't connect very fast (could download 4MB an hour). Now I am connected at 576kbps down - 256kbps up, which is the fastest available to me.

How can I check what I'm connected at?

According to dslreports.com, i'm at 4066 / 7532 right now. Of course, I am on an .edu and only a tenth of the students are here yet. Probably won't be this fast again.

nesman
September 4th, 2004, 20:24
Thats a good really good upload you got there.

El Fugitivo
September 5th, 2004, 06:10
Yeah, I know. And I had a couple of transfers (ingoing and outgoing) in progress then.

just got comcast high speed a few days ago and HOLY SHIT it is fast. i downloaded adaware and the download was finished before the download window came up, so thats at least 2.6mb/s down. i'll try dslreports thing later when i have more time

Ah, but all modern browsers use a predictive download thing, and start downloading likely files before you even click on their links. It means that your download was probably just downloaded before you thought about downloading it.

i see...strange....

so 3000 kilobits is how many kilobytes?

Corey4666
September 21st, 2004, 13:45
i got a speed of 3303.7kbps
to tell the truth im not so sure if thats a good speed or if its average or bad
whatever :lol:
but i know one thing i think my net speeds pretty fast

nesman
September 21st, 2004, 22:55
Thats not a bad speed either. What ISP do you use?

Havent heard of that. I got 2707kbps down and 889 kbps up. The speed used to be higher than that though. I use Optimum Online from Cablevision.

Even If we had a connection that quick normal hard drives cant write tha fast can they?

BTW im only on a 512kbs ADSL w 4gb limit but on the 30th Dec im going down :( to a 256kbs with 10gig limit

School year: University of Michigan's network; 2978 kbps/5564 kbps (Don't ask - I have no idea why the upload went faster that one test)
Home: I think it's Comcast cable. 2575 kbps/239 kbps

Jale

Wow guys, sure you have a very fast Internet connetion. I just have 256kbps downstream and 128kbps upstream :( It's the most cheap I could find though...

better for jappsmash, i only have a 56K modem... can some one help? i have a 56K modem and the connection speed is 31.2Kbs. this is the crappy modem i got after my first 2 internal modems broke down. the fit 2 were more better than this one cuz thier connection speeds are 51.4 Kbs and 48Kbps respectively... please help in troubleshooting

not surprised. sometimes old phone lines make it slow, thats what happened in my old town. i could never get over 32kbits/s

Jale
December 30th, 2004, 15:50
Maybe because phone lines are full-duplex.

Maybe because phone lines are full-duplex.

Would you not use terms just because you've heard them, please? What do you even think you're saying? He's not hitting the expected bandwidth/s because phone lines are full duplex? Buh? How does that make his phone line different from anybody else's? If the two-way nature of phone lines were the reason, then 56K dialup wouldn't exist at all. Stop. Thinking. You. Know. Anything. Stop. Spreading. Misinformation.

Weird, In my case I could reach 48kbps on my 56kbps modem.

i think that it has a problem with the modem cuz i got the crappy modem a few months after i got the first 2 broken down modems... (i break modems easily cuz i download a lot, hehehe :) ) also, the phone line cant be the problem cuz i replaced it with a new one :happy: can a computer have 2 modems with 2 different internet service provider to combine thier connection speed?
