  1. Not to argue (well, discuss is more like it) but you said it yourself, they do have some control, to a degree. If you go across multiple backbones to get to a server, and there are issues between the 2nd and 3rd (like I have going from Tulsa to Cali), then there is little your ISP can help with that. They can control who they connect to, but not much after that. One single ISP can not control the routing for the whole network. In some cases every ISP in your local area take the same path at some point to a server. Even though they may have their own backbone, those backbones connect to a regional NSP then get routed the same. In my case here in Tulsa I know to avoid servers in Cali due to a backbone between me and them having load issues, one of the main reasons I always use testmy for speed tests at a distance. Even when I lived in Las Vegas, Cali was always a problem. Granted, I use the same ISP, but the trace's are much different (in Las Vegas I saw the issues with Big Iron, here in Tulsa its usually alter.net or xo.net that I see the lag jump). Now if you have issues with an ISP across teh board, then yeah its time to switch ISPs. But if its just localized to one area, and especially if its after multiple backbones, then I would say its pretty much out of your ISP's hands.
  2. Ca3le, quick question. You posted earlier that ISP's want you test closer because it gives better results. In all actuality, they are only responsible for your bandwidth until you exit their network. If you have to hop through 15 connections to connect to another computer/server, your ISP is only going to be 3-4 hops. After that your at the mercy of whatever backbone you get routed to. So isn't it wiser to test closer to make sure the bandwidth your ISP provides is true? I mean, I could be getting 32 Mbits/sec on their network but hit a bad hop somewhere and barely get 5 Mbits/sec. That 27 Meg difference isn't my ISP's fault. Not to bash or troll, just want to clarify.
  3. Ok, just tried this over my wireless linux box: :::.. testmy.net test results ..::: Download Connection is:: 14300 Kbps about 14.3 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 1746 kB/s Upload Connection is:: 1049 Kbps about 1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Upload Speed is:: 128 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Main) Test Time:: 2007/10/06 - 8:56am D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-7VKUM8ZJQ U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-ALD6T54F7 User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061201 Firefox/ (Ubuntu-feisty) [!] This is with a Linksys WRT54G and a Linksys wireles G internal adapter/extended 5 dB antenna. Not too shabby over wireless
  4. I've noticed that I get faster speeds (not only in tests but in file downloads as well) in Linux as well (Ubuntu Fiesty 7.04 final). GG to Microsoft
  5. Here in Tulsa, with three computers online (wife playing pogo, chatting with friends, my son gaming, and my computer) at 9PM on a Saturday:
  6. 12meg Premier, speeds are posted as 12 Mbps down/ 1Mbps up, here are my results: :::..

  7. Um, no they don't, you were just dumb enough to get caught. As for them detecting what ports are used and whatnot.... sorry you are wrong. The only ports they care about are ones that are blocked for business level access or ports that are blocked for security reasons. To try and monitor all traffic on all ports would be a huge waste of time and resources.

  10. Yes, its the 5meg/768k package. So far I've not seen any problems with it, save that Pheonix seems to have a congested hub that makes gaming on west coast servers near impossible. But all other area's are good to go
  11. Im on Cox as well, and I was getting bursts like that til they capped my burst speed on my CMTS. I broke 8 Mb once, hit all the way up to 1 MB/sec speeds. Sigh, gone are the days, now Im right at 5 to 5.2 meg
  12. Ok, a friend at work told me about this site, so here I am! Here's my scores :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 5130 Kbps about 5.1 Mbps (tested with 2992 KB) Download Speed is:: 626 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line:: 92 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 1.64 second(s) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=ID3I7V83E :::.. Upload Stats ..::: Connection is: 691 Kbps about 0.7 Mbps (tested with 1013 KB) Upload Speed is: 84 KB/s Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/ Bottom Line: 12 times faster than 56K you can upload 1MB in 12.19 second(s) Validation Link :: https://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=QRXIH29MG So, my scores reflect what I get from my ISP: 5meg down/ 768k up. Go Cox Cable!
