Connection speed differences


Recommended Posts


So I tested my Upload speed using both Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox v. 3.0.11, and guess what...

In Internet Explorer, the final results say that my Upload speed is like 3.9--5 Mbps. In Firefox, it says that my upload is 1--1.1 Mbps.

What is the meaning of this? Why is there such a big difference in upload speed when I use two browsers?

Internet Xploder and FireFox both show the same numbers for me.

If you are a tweaker of FireFox Maybe you have an error in  about:config  ?

Or better yet. What is your Internet plan published 'upload' and 'download' specifications?
