Earthlink upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Guest philp

Does anyone know if Earthlink has upgraded their standard package lately? I have the basic 5000/384 package and just tested my DL speed and got this:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 5506 Kbps about 5.5 Mbps (tested with 5983 kB)

Download Speed is:: 672 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (main)

Test Time:: 2006/03/05 - 6:45am

Bottom Line:: 98X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 1.52 sec

I guess so. Or maybe Road Runner has upgraded? I get my Earthlink from Time Warner cable who also provides RR in this area. Last time RR upgraded, so did I. According to Earthlink's website, their basic package is still 3000/384.

But Road Runner advertises this:

new package is 7/512

My guess would be that these stats are for a 10+ Mbps/512 Kbps connection.

- Download 30 Day Stats (Overall Average =    6746 Kbps :: 823 kB/sec)

- Upload 30 Day Stats (Overall Average =    478 Kbps :: 58 kB/sec)

3 bucks aint much, but if it is for you then good deal

LOL!! No, it isn't much. But at the current prices, it's almost 1.5 gallons of gasoline.  :haha:  :haha:  :haha:

But seriously, it's the principle. Besides, it's actually $8 a month more for Road Runner if you don't also include Time Warner cable's crappy service. What a joke!  :evil6:  :evil6:

when did you notice the speed increase

When I started this thread a couple of weeks ago. I had been in the mid to high 4000's until then. Now I'm consistently over 5000. Upload seems to have dropped a bit from my normal:
