I did a test on my cable/broadband connection and it came back with a DL at 5072Kbps and an UL at 369Kbps.

What is everybody else at? Am I low, average, or high?

If you do not have a test site readily available and are in the US, you can use this one.

Edit: I just called RR and asked them what my top speeds should be. He responded thus:

DL: 3000-5000Mbps
UL: 385Kbps

Neat test. Looks like I'm at 11,639kbps DL and UL at 329. That's with the local comcast cable.

Using a European server to test speed, because on the US ones proposed by speakeasy, I only got 1 mbps...

That's really weird, Dplax - your upload speed is more than twice your download speed.

Speakeasy:

Up: 5368 kbps

Speedtest.net (amsterdam server)

Note that this last one is not a fluke, we've tested it again and again.

So it looks like I am average or low, depending on area.

Now...let me mention that I know from listening to a radio financial advisor say that the US has the worst internet speeds in the world, and the highest prices. He says that any Asian connection is at least double the speed and half the price of any American one, and that is because of the crookedness of the businesses. I hate knowing that I am spending $45.00/month, and getting only half of what some of you are posting getting in DL speed. I want my money's worth!
