  1. The reason tweaking has to be done is that no operating system can accurately guess what kind of internet connection each user has. This means they have to cater to the lowest common denominator, not us high-speed internet users. Anyone who wants more speed than the general 'broadband internet' profile provided by the operating system does need to tweak to get every last bit of performance. I don't have university internet. I was using somebody else's numbers to illustrate that your supposed hardware cap is in fact nonexistent. Your claims are alarmist and inaccurate. Please check your facts and refrain from doing the "I did exaggerate on some parts for a reason..." thing on any future posts. Thank you.
  2. Sorry, KBolt... I don't know where you get your information, but it's just plain wrong. Sure, there will always be overhead and most people will never see the full speed of their internet connection because of that, but there is no general 20-30 megabit per second cap. I have seen download/upload results of 195.42/53.53 megabits per second (200,120 kbps download, 54,820 kbps upload) - and that's on university computers, which aren't typically bleeding edge machines.

  5. Hey everybody! I'm Leaps-from-Shadows ... but you can call me Leaps. I was introduced to this site by someone who said the speed test was more accurate than SpeedTest.net, so here I am already testing away. Looking forward to participating here more as I have the time. Later y'all!
