Crazy    you should see  my Downstream speed  on Saturdays and Sundays.....

3.325Mbps  415.6KBytes  6:14 am  April 15th , 2006    and I have peaked    only once  over 3.6Mbps since I bought the 3Mbps package about a year or so ago.

It is nice when that happens...too bad it doesn't stay..

Something like that happen to me once....I had a 9Mbps connection for uhm about 30 mins then it went back to 5.4Mbps...thats a tease and I want it again

Yep I know how that feels      but      try going online  between the hours of 3 am and 7 am    of any day  especially Saturday and Sunday mornings    and u can see your speeds  close to 6.5Mbps    but promise something        DON'T STEAL ALL THE DAMN BANDWIDTH !!!        Had cases here in Maryland    my co-worker lives in Columbia  ;  one of the neighborhoods  receiving fiber now      and  1/2 is    Fiber  and the other 1/2 is still Cable DSL and Dial-Up        and he happens to notice  that Verizon have been stealing all the bandwidth from Comcast  for their fiber    and he is with Comcast    and he said  that he must get on the internet  between the hours of 11pm to 7am  to get a good connection    from Comcast    .  Because what I think it is          is that  its interference  with the bandwidth  from Verizon and the bandwidth from Comcast      and being Fiber is stronger in connection than cable ,  Verizon has been winning in that neighborhood .  AND ITS BEEN THIS WAY FOR 6 WEEKS !!!

My connection stays between 5Mbps to 5.7Mbps....the only time I get under that when some dumb ass crashes into a telephone poll

Ajb, I think your scores are just fine.  I don't think you will get any better on either the download or the upload.

Most likely but I would at least call them up to see...DSL is supose to be really close to the advertisment speeds. Well it doesn't really matter anyways because thats pretty good DSL speeds..

It could also be distance from the nearest CO that the lines run on.  I betcha  if I lived  just across the street or next door to the CO  ,  it will be at 3Mbps or higher  99.9% of the time  ( the other .1 is in case for verizon service upgrades)  but I live  1/2 mile from the nearest CO and I get speeds on http://infospeed.verizon.net  most of the time  2.9Mbps

2.9mbps is very good for a 3mbps connection. your never really going to get your full advertised speed unless the over cap you.

That test site stinks, I reached as high 1.88Mbps down. The test results I receive from testmy and DSL reports are far more accurate than that test site.
