It is now sixth day with new ISP. I must say I am happy with that.
Average speeds looks like this.

TheDawgz say "WOW that is fast!!"

So, just for fun, we used the same SPEEDTEST server hosted by STARMAN AS as you did.
Even though TheDawgz are ~5500mi farther away from it than you are; we didn't fare too badly.

I thought I'd join in the fun with testing against the Tallinn server as well. Definitely slows down over the long distance ;-)



And a bit closer to home...



Must just be a busy day. Usually I'm right at my advertised 105 Mb/s.

Message 70186 - Posted: 19 Oct 2013 | 19:19:47 UTC

I tried a few different servers, including the one in Tallinn, my "recommended server based on ping" and a couple other random ones. The results were uniformly crappy, but pretty consistent at least for d/l and u/l rates. That says to me the bottleneck is this tiny thin straw that I'm using to suck the bits through for the last 10 feet to my computer (okay not the very last 2 feet, as that's a 1000 baseT wired). Ping times were about as expected; not bad locally, bad to Estonia (about on par with TheDawgz). I decline to post the actual u/l and d/l rates as they are too embarrassing.

I want to go to your school, Golfer. Or, rather, I wish I did. I only left High School in 1997, but we had Nimbus PCs* and no internet at all.

*That article is misleading, the later versions of the RM Nimbus ran Windows 3.0, although... well let's be polite and say they weren't very fast and couldn't do much. We all had better PCs at home, too, I had a Pentium 90, which I think was the first Pentium that didn't contain that small but potentially critical flaw (link).

I would apologise for derailing the thread, but this is the AtP forum, so...

Google Fiber moved into Provo (just south of me) and now my fiber provider added Gigabit for the same price just to beat them to the punch. Someday when I actually need that much bandwidth, I'll have to get my son to upgrade our main router to be able to handle the speed. Right now when I go through it I'm only getting:



Going direct, I get about 700 down and 400 up. :)

Well, at my school the firewalls are so derailing to their speed its crazy.. and they made it impossible to use google/gmail or any other sites that people like to go on. I resort to the program that is my lifeline; ultrasurf.

I'm not suggesting you do this, because I'm a good person (honest!), but I suppose if I was at school today I'd forget about the firewalls and just use portable hardware like smartphones or Raspberry PIs, or anything else that can use a micro-SD card to share games or whatever with my mates. That way, the IT teacher can do all he likes to his firewalls, because they're irrelevant to you. I suppose you could get into pretty serious trouble if you were caught sharing data though, the deepness of the trouble of course depending on what the data was. I think I'd try to share a new beta/demo of a game with a close mate though, I think I've mentioned before that when one mate asked me if I had the Quake 3 demo, I had to zip it over 14 floppies, and obviously that wasn't do-able during schooltime. If only micro-SD cards existed back then...

Again, I obviously don't know you personally and I wouldn't take my advice about any of this stuff, I really am a bit of an idiot. Just thinking aloud.

Yeah the school really doesnt know much about internet security.. I've downloaded torrents before at school (crunchbang linux and other ISOs) and im sure if i wanted to i could do whatever i want especially since my computer teacher (web design I) is amazing and likes me :3

I feel another hijack coming on.

I was taught computing at university on a Multics system http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multics.

The lecturer cheerfully announced that the end of year examination papers and answers were stored on his user account and that hacking his account to get them was a perfectly acceptable way of passing the paper so long as we didn't share the results with others who literally couldn't hack it.

hmm, is urban UK really that much better compared to the OP?




Is now the time to start the "youngsters, they don't know they've lived" stuff?

My first modem ran at a whopping 300bps, so in 30 years or so only around 125000x speed improvement. They really need to try harder :-p

The best part of the old dial up was listening to the connection as it geared up and then waited and waited as it finally made a connection. I remember ISP companies all over advertising the fastest and largest number of TOLL free numbers. I really don't miss those days.

No, is was hardly brilliant considering a dial-up coneection up to 56K as a privilege, was it. In the UK, if someone in the same house as you tried to make an outgoing call, they'd not be able to make it, but they'd cut your connection off anyway... so what a brilliant situation, everybody loses.

Aaaaaand relax, now everybody exhale and breathe out their frustrations with the world...

This is from my school..

This is from my home..



Both are to the same server (Data102)

My school has multiple fiber optic lines into the school.

We just changed ISPs from comcast to centurylink... Slower speeds :(
Went from 29 down to 18 down, and from 6 up to 0.25 up :( :( :( :(

Looks like I'll be using the school's lines :P

Hopefully at least the new home ISP is cheaper. Or maybe they sent you a fruit basket or something.
