Thread: What Speed Do You Get?

  1. #1
    What speed do you get? and Where are you?

    With My 512/256 ADSL on average I get about 458kb download speed which I think is quite good!! With a top speed ever of 461kb!

    I'm in the UK

    If you wanna try a test try this site

    Speed Test

    Cheers

    I think mine is 1.5Mbit. I never get constant speeds over 200KB/sec, it always starts off at around 400KB then drops down from 100-175KB/sec.

    I don&#39;t believe you&#39;re getting those sort of speeds, unless you have read it wrong. I have a 1MB connection which includes a 256k/b upload.

    Maximum speeds I am capable of are:

    Download: 125kb/sec
    Upload: 30kb/sec

    Technically, you should have roughly half of what I get, thus you should see:

    Download: 62.5kb/sec
    Upload: 15kb/sec

    I think you may have meant to say 45.8kb/sec, which if so is pretty bad for what you&#39;re paying for. Hope this makes sense. Don&#39;t want to see people celebrating when infact they&#39;re getting ripped off

    1Mb/sec = (1024/8) = 128kB/sec

    1024 kilobots / second = 128 kilobytes / second

    most services are quoted in kilobits per second (or megabits), however, download speeds you&#39;ll see are generally in kilobytes per second

    I know what your saying, but what is your d/l speed in kbps?

    I must admit it is a bit confusing about KB&#39;S and kb&#39;s but I&#39;m quoting just what I read from the speed test sites so thats how we should compare with each other, if we all use kbps then we&#39;ll know&#33;

    As for my previous post, I think the majority knew I meant kB/Sec

    Sorry if I confused anyone there... wasn&#39;t intentional. Here are my results from the speed test software located at ADSL Guide. Click here for my personal test.

    ISP: NTL
    DOWNLOAD: 109.9 kB/Sec
    UPLOAD: 30.1 kB/Sec

    I must stress at this point, I was running Live Update but it hasn&#39;t seem to altered the findings too much... As I mentioned before, I usually get 125kB/Sec Vs 30kB/Sec

    Hope this helps anyone,

    I have 512/128 adsl, I get about 400kb/s downstream and 90kb/s upstream.

    My download speed top is 72kb/s but on average about 51kb/s my uploads are about 15kb/s.

    im in australia.

    BTW guys the first guy that said his speed was 458kb/s or what ever he was talking about Downstream not Download thats why he said test it here&#33;&#33;
