Well im not too Tech Savvy, but I have tested at a few other sites.  It happens that this is the lowest test i get.  May be a noob question but how do i clear my catch.  Id like to run anoter test with the previous posters suggestions.  Thanks for the help and the welcome .

If you're using IE then click on  "Tools" in the overhead menu and go down to "Internet Options".  Then select the "General" tab in the pop up and go down to "Temporary Internet Files".  Click the "Delete Files" button here.  That's it.

If you're using Firefox then click on "Tools" in the overhead menu and go down to "Options".  Then select the "Privacy" option in the pop up and click on the "Cache" tab.  Then click on "Clear Cache Now".

Since comcast fixed the line at the pole, my speeds have gone back to what they are supposed to be.
