816 Kbps. On my laptop, running on batteries, through an 802.11b wireless Netgear router, with Age of Mythology running on my desktop.

Not too shabby. Once you go broadband, you never go back.

1171. Guess I shouldn't complain so much about Time Warner.
 
2003-01-26 10:01:24 PM

2003-01-26 10:41:50 PM

Well, I could, but I don't want to bore y'all.

How much are you cable fellas paying? If I'm getting half the speed you are at 40 bucks, I'm gonna be peeved.

2003-01-27 12:57:14 AM  
1188. God bless cable.
 
2003-01-27 12:57:51 AM  
I predict that the rest of this thread will be as boring as what came before this post.

That's about what I'm paying. It all depends on where you are at.

1722 AT&T Cable in Dallas. Not bad, but not the best. They used to have it uncapped to around 3000.

2003-01-27 01:02:01 AM  
746, cable. no concurrent DLs, surprisingly.
 
2003-01-27 01:02:12 AM  
Wheee, a cleverly disguised ad for Earthink, how fun.

Their use of the capital 'B' in their 1.5MB/s option is also misleading, BTW, as the accepted standard is b = bit, B = byte, and they even use the lower case 'b' in the other measurements.
 
2003-01-27 01:02:14 AM  
791 kbps w/ Earthlink DSL
 
2003-01-27 01:02:24 AM

2003-01-27 01:03:28 AM  
Nice speeds cable guys. Too bad you'll get your account terminated if you ever start using that power...

/Sitting pretty with 800 kbps SDSL
 
2003-01-27 01:03:31 AM  
887 through Comcast Cable in ATL - $37.95/mo.

Heck, the porn downloads just fine, what better scale is there?
