Here's mine:


Here's the test from Verizon, a test which is -- I think -- served from their servers on the WAN rather from across the Internet:


This is a 5/2 Mbps connection, provided by Verizon FIOS.

Yes.

It is supposed to be 5/2 Mbps. I was using IPCop, I ran into some problems with it and haven't put it back online. For now, we are using the provided D-Link DI-624C router.

What is REALLY nice is accessing videos hosted on my server across town. That building has a 15/2 connection with 5 static IP's. And, since they are also getting their connection provided by Verizon, it never really leaves the WAN. Therefore, the videos play very nicely.

I'm on a Wi-Fi connection so don't laugh. My whole town is wired for Wi-Fi.

Well kona0197 your speed is still better than AOL.
My dad still refuses to switch from AOL. He says it's too much trouble. He pays $40 a month. He's a sucker.

I wish Verizon offered FiOS in my area. Comcast really has our area by the balls. They charge like $80 for the speed I posted. I could get 10x that much with Verizon. They say that they will upgrade to 12Mbs in december, but no word on how much upload they will give.

I dual-boot with XP due to the few facts that the Girlfriend dosen't like Linux and sometimes Kubuntu will drop the Wi-Fi connection. I just spent a half hour last night digging through my Windows directories and Registry to rid myself of AOL because AOL will not uninstall itself. AOL is very evil.

8Mb ADSL. I'd upgrade to the 45Mb service but as I'm just over 3Km from the local switching centre I'd only get about 12Mb so it's not worth the extra cost for the minor speed increase.

8Mb service and only 1.8 on your end? You should complain!

As I said, I'm on the limit as far as distance from the phone company switching centre I knew when I signed up (several years ago) that I wouldn't get brilliant performance. Still, I only pay 3135 yen a month or 14 UK pounds or US$27.00. Was thinking of going to (dedicated) 100Mb up/down fibre but it would cost me double and I'd rather use that money for beer.

Edit: My provider has a page with a chart showing typical speeds at different distances from the phone company's offices. The page is in Japanese but the chart is easily understandable:

http://bbpromo.yahoo.co.jp/promotion...lar/point.html

As you'll notice, even though I'm on the 8M service I'm only getting about 2Mb. I'd have to upgrade and pay for 50M to get 8M
