Reasonable Expectation Cable bandwidth


Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this is an old question, or if it's not one that is appropriate for this list.

Question: what is the speed/bandwidth that is reasonable to actually expect from cable hook ups to Internet?

And/Or: what may one legally expect from cable hook-ups?

I'm getting ~ 89% up, and 67% down ("of host average" -- rr.com).

St. Velkro.. welcome to the forum!

There are a few thing to take into consideration..  When you see the % after the test that is everyone on the entire site regardless of what package they have.. So if you have a 5000 download and 256 upload your % would still be calculated with the 8000/512 people.. being on road runner..

From what your speeds are it looks like you are on the 5000/384 package.. In which case the upload is quite a bit low..  That could be a signal problem.. or just a lot of usage on your node..  However, the download, with some tweaking, should be able to get right around your cap.. that is pretty a pretty solid score.

Hope that help.. if you are intersted in tweaking.. http://www.testmy.net/forum/t-2097 read that then post..
