  1. It's been a while since I opened this thread. Since then my connection has been upgraded. Here are my latest results: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::.. Download Stats ..::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Download Connection is:: 15209 Kbps about 15.2 Mbps (tested with 20972 kB) Download Speed is:: 1857 kB/s Tested From:: http://aus.matrixau.com Test Time:: 2006/12/13 - 6:45am Bottom Line:: 265X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 0.55 sec Tested from a 20972 kB file and took 11.296 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: Awesome! 20% + : 519.51 % faster than the average for host
  2. Strange... why would he bother if you did (you probably don't need to ask) and why do we all need to know (you could have messeged him).
  3. Metro or not, I live in metro (Sydney) too, but I can get a max of 1.6 MB/s, I live about 1.7 KM from the exchange. You need to know how far away you are from the exchange, I'm guessing about 2 KM. I'm assuming it's the fastest speed you're going to archive, which really isn't that bad! And for that test link I gave you, it was for your upload speed, not download. What were the results? Should have been about 100 KB/s. Cheers, Shane
  4. Where are you from? And which ISP are you with? If it's ADSL it depends on how far you are from the exchange you're connected to and the quality of your line. Your ISP should be advertising it as "UP TO 24 Mbps", did you have a closer look? It's unlikley you will be able to get 24 Mbps, even 20 Mbps is hard, unless you live like < 500 meters away from the exchange. Do you know your attenuation and line noise stats? Make sure you have filters on all other devices using the same line as your ADSL, first try dissconnecting all other devices from the line and seeing if
  5. Hello fellow Aussies, There's now a Australian mirror for testmy.net! Excellent for those higher speed connections (above 1.5 Mbps - I'm talking 10 Mbps+) that want a more accurate results. http://www.testmy.net/o-mirror-ShaneAu2 Post results here. This is from my Bigpond Cable Standard connection, Sydney, NSW: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 9102 Kbps about 9.1 Mbps (tested with 20972 kB) Download Speed is:: 1111 kB/s Tested From:: http://aus.matrixau.com Test Time:: 2006/04/26 - 7:14am Bottom Line:: 159X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 0.92 sec
  6. That is 4.2 Mb/s (MegaBITS), I said I get 1.19 MB/s (MegaBYTES) that is 9.52 Mbps. Besides your result looks soo tampered with . Where's your validation link?
  7. Wow nice... I pay $45 USD per month, and get 10 Mbps down and only 128 kbps up (big difference, hey!), and a 10 GB download cap per month, after the 10 GB the line is slown down to 64 Kbps!
  8. Here's my best: USA: :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 7962 Kbps about 8 Mbps (tested with 20972 kB) Download Speed is:: 972 kB/s Tested From:: http://matrixau.net Test Time:: Bottom Line:: 142X faster than 56K 1MB download in 1.05 sec Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 467.09 % faster than the average for host (net.au) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-NZI6HMEVX And done from a local mirror in Sydney, Australia: Test run on 22/5/2005 @ 10:33 P.M. Mirror: Optus Test type: Cable Your connection speed: kbps: 9164.3 KB/s: 114
  9. We can get servers in America with 2 TB bandwidth for just like $230 per month (which I do get), if I was to get one here in Aus it would be about $1000 and with about 80 GB if I'm lucky. . And hell no I'm not moving, Australia's great! I can live with expensive bandwidth. Just showing the comparision.
  10. It pisses me off seeing you Americans saying USA bandwidth is expensive. Here, yes, I have 10 Mbps cable (Download) and only 128 Kbps (Upload) but my speed is slown down to 64 Kbps down and up once I hit 10 GB (10 GB quota per month), I pay $47 USD per month for that, that's considerd rather cheap here compared to our DSL services. I could go on a 20 GB per month plan where instead of being slown down after 20 GB, they charge me per the megabyte, this is where you will see how expensive bandwidth is in Australia, it's 12 cents per MEGABYTE over the 20 GB monthly quota. The 20 GB pla
  11. .net.au, we don't have fiber to the home just yet . (In Australia).
  12. lol. Do the test again.. lucky you .
  13. It's because usually at the start of a download your speed doesn't max out, but the speed test starts counting regardless. If you download DU Meter and monitor that, you will see your true speed, just make sure you're not doing anything within an LAN at the time of the test because DU Meter monitors both LAN and WAN traffic.
