Not really, but now that i have your attention,

Check out http://speedtest.net/
Because the speed of your connection will determine if you are better than other people around you


^I find this strange as Opera tells me my download speed is 3k-4k

they mean kilobits. so divide by 8: that's 4 down.

i got 1518 (190) down and 382 (48) up. 55ms latency, 50 miles away.

rubbish for what should be up to 8000 down!

32 k per second, Sean? That is insanely slow. We should have tried a little test with that CD I sent you by mail -- to see if it could fly to Ireland faster than a download of it had gone.

Mine was 4,606 down and 354 up. I could stand a little more on the up side, but it's hard to beat 4,606 for only $50 (U.S.) per month.



Grand Marnier and a pocketful of speed. We did it all day until we started to bleed.

BLT is the John Holmes of the forum. Sean Wrenn is the, I don't know, Sean Penn?

This one's from work. Do those of us with higher upload than download speeds get a prize?

Nothing is ever something.

Supposedly there will be a rollout of 4G broadband for 100% of Ireland. I read that 4G broadband has speeds of 100mbps in mobile conditions and 1GBps in stationary, is that right? 1GBps?
It’ll be a big jump from 3k for me

Ah, the days of waiting several minutes for a 168k pic of some chick whom you weren't even sure was going to be topless until the download got past her neck. You'll miss that, Sean.
