    What's Your Internet Connection?

    So, as the title explains, what's everyone's internet connection ? I'm currently on DSL (moved from AOL !).

    I changed the cable from the modem to the wall with some monster brand cable. I can tell some positive difference!

    This is were I run my tests:
    http://www.dslreports.com/tools

    My test after my cable was installed was:1282/down and 384/up.
    I know that is just above my average that I had before. It wasn't a huge jump, but noticeable. Maybe it just makes me feel better mentally.

    I just tried it again:
    Your download speed : 1927230 bps, or 1927 kbps.
    Browsers would show : about a 235.2 k/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 377358 bps, or 377 kbps.
    Your connection rocks .. above the 1mbit barrier!

    T1 lines are not designed for high speed - only high trafic

    so basically if it were a road to drive on? It would be like driving on a 8 lane highway with a 45MPH speed limit.

    T1 in a more technical sense are designed for many many users to use simotaniously at a reasonable speed.

    T3 connections are nothing more than basically 28 T1 lines banded together as one line - now this one... is fast! 40 lane highway with a 75MPH limit!

    Finish.
