Curious to see how your internet speed stacks up against others?

Try This:  http://www.speedtest.net/

Here's my result.

If at first, you do not succeed; You Obviously did Not use a BIG enough Hammer!!!
If at first, you Do Succeed.. try not to look tooo Astonished!

Why is the upload speed so much slower than yours?

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

In answer to Sharon's Question, (and I'm sure others)

There are literally hundreds of things that can change your speed.

What Browser are You Using?

Do you have Anti Virus Running

Are you on a Home Network (ie wired or wireless)

Is your line connected via a substation, or to the main hub at your ISP?


They can all affect your overall speed, and unless the results are waaay out of line, (ie Big John) then most connections should keep similar results over time.


The fact that your results  (both with the same ISP) are very compatible with Milli's, shows that things are looking good.

There are enough advantages to Tiv to make up for the gravel road on the information highway.
