Wow, my download speed is more than twice as fast as my WLAN connection says it is (54 Mb/s).
I've seen something like that. My friend did it, but it was some bug (he got 180mbps download speed and like 0.5mbps upload). He did it again and it got WAY more realistic (3mbps download speed, 0.5mbps upload). I would think yours is some error, maybe you should try it again. Also I think it is a bug because your ping is pretty high, if your download speed was really that high I think your ping would be WAY lower. If isn't then that is like unbelievable :eek:

Also this is mine, fast upload speed ftw :D

And everything was higher when I was uploading a video to youtube.

Your "Ping" is the latency between you and the server you are trading data with. It is measured in milliseconds. Anything under 1000ms is fine for browsing. Competitive gamers try to keep this under 60.


This is using the connection on my phone, which is setup as a router at the moment. I will test out *cough* my neighbor's *cough* connection when I get home from work.


Just redid the test using my phone, but this time it was tethered via usb cable. I'm unsure whether this is an inconsistent connection, or if the wifi connection is faster than the USB connection between my phone and laptop.

I prefer the spedtests at Speakeasy.net since they allow you to choose which server you use for the test.

Holly crap, US ISP are really bad xD I knew it by reputation, but this really clear now.

Or instance I have :
18Mb down
384k up (and that sucks).

Look at the french ISP, you'll find only one offer : 30€ for 28Mb down / 2Mb up and VoIP free telecommunication (including internationnal calls), numeric HD TV and mobile network where available (usefull when traveling).

And optical fiber is comming. I hope I could have ot when I come back to France.

Funny thing, althought french people have really good ISP, french people are quite technology hostiles, and have a very low connection rate. 1/2 person do not have an interenet connection.

You mean US is slow in download or upload, or both? US download average is 7.81 Mbps, upload is 1.79 mbps. France download average is 8.18 Mbps and 1.21 Mbps upload speed. I got these from the world results page on speedtest.net.

Oh and I agree with this guy.
What the hell with all of your upload speeds?

Local
Teehee I'm still faster than everybody :D(upload speed)
