Default Test and Post Your Internet Download Speed

Johndoe's questions about internet service providers provoked this.

Pick a server from the list and see who has the fastest download and upload speeds. Post your results, your provider and type (DSL, Cable, Dialup, Satellite, Wireless). Sometimes the closest server to you will be the fastest for you but not always.

I thought donkey, but I can second that sentiment. They were the worst I had ever encountered.

Funny, my first ever customer service experience was with them today. Stoned as can be, took in my box that suddenly stopped working and I swear in about 2 minutes I had a new one and I was out the door.

well in person its a whole different story. Try calling their customer service telephone number and get one of the droids in there to actually help you with something. Then it is a whole different ball game. and 10,460?? holy hell batman that is GOOD imo..half that is average I think
