Yeah, I don't know of anywhere out here that doesn't use satellites for internet. Luckily the one I'm using now is completely separate from the SPAWAR or the NIPR/SIPR lines.

Ballerificus, built a new desktop and was playing Black Ops "after" work. Was able to get some German servers with around 150-170 ping. Not bad for wifi internetz in Baghdad.

How come no 4G WiMAX option? Wait--2008? I see this thread has evolved into a show me your bandwidth speed ***** contest.

I think I usually hit 3 Mb/s down and 1.5 Mb/s on a typical day, but then I'm not exactly on the grid.

My iPhone 4 at work. You can see the reception.

It was pretty cool. Speedtest.net had an app, then used photobucket app to upload and test.

I wanted to renew my contract with Verizon.

They will charge me more to maintain or decrease my speed. So naturally...

I had to upgrayedd.

Leeching on Pakistani cell towers from across the border, y'all. Looks like I'm in Switzerland due to proxies.

Interesting to go back and look at the grades versus speeds. Is it somehow time dependent, making direct comparisons less useful? For example, on Speedtest.net, this morning was:

4.14 Mb/s download
27.88 Mb/s upload
29 ms ping

Which they gave a B grade to. I see some from early in the thread (didn't realize it was 5 years old) that were faster but graded lower.

WOOT! Got a new modem after something like 10 years. The one I had one very early, right after cable internet hit the markets. Charter out of the blue said you need an updated modem or we are shutting off your service Thursday, which is kind of shitty since we had no advanced warning. Drove to the local office and picked up a new modem, and now things seem to be much better. Old speed was around 15-18Mb/s, pretty stable, but had some connectivity dropping issues. The new modem allows me to take advantage of my grandfathered "Speed Boost" thing, which normally only comes with the higher end packages. My DL starts at around 35Mb/s for the first 3 or 4 seconds, then drops to around 19Mb/s. So about the same as old, but that speed boost makes downloading smaller files much snappier. Larger, sustained downloads are about the same. Upload is about triple what it used to be. It was stable at 1.07Mb/s. Also just noticed dat ping. HNNNGGG. Used to be double that for the same server.



Just retested for a third time to be sure, and everything else is consistent, but this time the speed boost hit 42Mb/s for those 3 or 4 seconds, before slowly tapering off and settling at 18-19Mb/s.

I have no idea why my computer is doing worse at my new home. I was hitting 48-50Mbps at my condo via wireless N; and it seems to be just MY computer, my wife's PC gets that here and we are both hardwired in.
