    I don't know what you guys are complaining about. Where I live we have one option. Wireless bouncing off towers. I get the great speed of 1mb download on a good day all for the great price of $40 a month. Oh but they just installed new hardware so they offered me the great deal of a 2mb download for $60 a month.

    7AM central time on a Sunday. Clearly, the earlier it is, the better it works.

    Below is what my test indicated. So.....???? What now?


    Is your upload traffic rate limited?

    There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your uploads.
    However, some of the measurements were affected by noise, which limits Glasnost ability to detect rate limiting.

    Details:

    * There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your FlashVideo uploads. In our tests, uploads using control flows achieved up to 827 Kbps while uploads using FlashVideo achieved up to 955 Kbps.

    * There is no indication that your ISP rate limits uploads on port 42950 or 56203. In our tests, uploads on port 42950 achieved up to 955 Kbps while uploads on port 56203 achieved up to 955 Kbps.
    Is your download traffic rate limited?

    Your ISP appears to rate limit your downloads.

    Details:

    * Your ISP appears to rate limit your FlashVideo downloads. In our tests, downloads using control flows achieved up to Kbps while downloads using FlashVideo achieved up to 10536 Kbps.

    * Your ISP appears to rate limit downloads on port 42950. In our tests, downloads on port 42950 achieved up to 10222 Kbps while downloads on port 56203 achieved up to Kbps.

    You might wanna do some checking around, your ISP may be throttling your speed.

    I need to test mine. Last night Vudu said that I was only SD quality. Today it said that it was at HD.

    Mine's this:



    With this rate (the package I pay for is 50/10), buffering problems are unusual. I generally get bumped to Netflix's highest quality settings (X-High, some of which I swear approach native 1080p, though obviously not BR-like bitrates) within the first minute or so of watching. If the selection was 2-3x better, I could easily see punting on the disk deliveries and just live happily in the cloud. We're getting very close...

    I used to have 20Mbps down/4 up, and buffering was much more frequent at the same quality levels. At 20/4, I was rarely chosen as host for online Call of Duty: Black Ops matches. At 50/10, I'm chosen a lot more often. (Which, if you play that game, is decidedly NOT a good thing.)

    Looks like mine has improved since I last posted.

    I never have any buffering issues and have no trouble getting netfix in hd within a minute or two. Vudu is absolutely flawless.

    Wow had to move the cob-webs out of the way on this thread heck, I couldn't decide where to post my false internet speed results it doesn't seem that fast, unless someone is stealing my bandwidth and I haven't caught anyone yet.

    Well G-man started this thread so I'll wake it up at least for one day.

    Here's the speed test results from speedtest.comcast.net followed by OOKLA results.



    speedtest.net by OOKLA



    OOKLA shows faster results. Go figure. Unless they are owned by Comcast wouldn't be surprised.

    My average monthly bandwidth usage according to Comcast is 190GB out of 350gb allowed.
