What (Internet) connection speeds are you getting?

I've had local router (not my house router) issues, just curious what connection speeds others are getting.

Hey, that's a pretty neat site. I've seen similar, but not with such spiffy graphics
Anyway, I got 10664 download and 1343 upload. Chances are mine would do better with a fresh reboot, I've been stressing my PC all day.

EDIT: Still haven't rebooted
2nd test: 13560 download, 1241 upload
3rd test: 11216 download, 1423 upload

Speakeasy - Speed Test

This is the one my Hughesnet installer used.

I can only dream of speeds like some of you have
1063 Download
270 Upload

And they call this "High Speed internet"

I may not have to worry about my Smart being stolen but I cant get Fast internet, Still beats dialup.

I have Verizon FiOS, 20 down 5 up. My connectivity in my apartment is all Wireless Draft-N (Apple Airport Extreme) or Gig copper (just between switch/file server).

I can't say enough about it... if FiOS is offered in your area - seriously consider going to it.

As most of the time... via Comcast. No FIOS available in this building. Also Apple Airport, but not extreme.

Would love to get FIOS but not offered here. Cable is faster than our DSL but I'm not giving Time Warner any more $$$ - will dump them as soon as another option is offered here. We're supposed to get AT&T u-verse pretty soon.
