Upload speed is way higher than normal

Recommended Posts

I have the Comcast 16/2 plan and just tested my upload speed on here using the SmarTest. Here is what I got

:::.. Upload Stats ..:::

Upload Connection is:: 6030 Kbps about 6 Mbps (tested with 15872 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 736 kB/s

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

Test Time:: 2008/04/29 - 8:06am

Bottom Line:: 105X faster than 56K 1MB Upload in 1.39 sec

Tested from a 15872 kB file and took 21.562 seconds to complete

Upload Diagnosis:: Awesome! 20% + : 654.69 % faster than the average for host (comcast.net)

U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-O4X1LNAKC

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080404 Firefox/ [!]


Now thats 3 times faster than my advertised speeds. Im guessing a glitch with the site right??

I have heard two different things

1. Comcast upgraded to the new Sandvine fairshare, that was just announced at the 2008 Cable Show today

It uses application-agnostic


2. Comcast ditched Sandvine and is working with Pando Networks, to create a protocol-agnostic network management technique by the end of this year

As for my upload still at a steady 2.5Mbps

Edit: just got a 3.0Mbps Upload and a 32Mbps Download on speakeasy
