    speakeasy speed test today! no joke.....

    16215 kbps down (fastest ive ever seen it in 6 months)

    1479 up

    also.. Comcast just announces some new modem/router that is capable of 150Mbits/sec down

    how they gunna do it???

    looks like they're gunna multiplex 4 separate coax cables into one (Super Modem) line per house.
    this makes sense.. because i think the theoreticcal limit for coax is approx 30Mbits/sec (ish) per line.

    wonder how much that'll be a month...

    Comcast is feeling the heat from Verizon FiOS, so they'll be jacking the speeds up now. :)

    This has little to do with this thread, but how can I see the speeds at which my internet is running? For instance I have Time Warner (Roadrunner). How would I go about see what it's running at, as opposed to what they advertise?

    ive read that the speakeasy test is one the most reliable tests out there

    I think it shows true speed because true packet overhead is included.

    better than downloading a big file and just timing it
