Up's a little slow, but down is sweet.  Considering I really only use down, it's perfect for me.

It looks better than the tools I used used to use at DSLreports, but I think they are a bit more robust over there and allow you to compare to lots of other people's results with the same or different broadband provider.  And obviously it's not just DSL anymore, it's now BroadbandReports.

You guys are getting bad pings, whats up with that?  I used to get shit pings with Comcrap, then I switched to Wide Open West, and average 17ms-22ms almost anywhere.  I pay only $29 a month for 6MB Down, 500K up, but WOW routinely provides me with between 6500-6800 down, and 550-650 upstream.  FANTASTIC company.

Yeah, my pings aren't testing extremely well from that site, but I have to say that overall my results there have been all across the board.  I have gotten download results as high as 11000kbps and as low as ~6000 and ping times from 20-60 on the same server.  While I realize that net congestion fluctuates form minute to minute I think they need to do more thorough testing and averaging to get more accurate values.

I use Wide Open West and have their 4.0 Mbps/300 kbps service.  I suppose I could bump it up a notch, but it really hasn't affected me at all.

Hey KD, you're faster than me on the upload, but not by much.  How do you manage to upload so many movies and screenshots?   It takes me forever to get large files posted.  You do many times what I put up and much more often.

Wow, I don't even want to show you the embarrassing numbers from my university.  Download was really really slow but upload wasn't too bad.

Wish I knew what it meant, but it took me 10 minutes to find the correct places to click on to produce this image thingie! saywhat

It is Comcast cable, with wireless laptop and some sort of Gaming Router sending more, ummm - "stuff" - to the 360.  Sorry to use technical terms that I know many of you won't understand!
