use dslreports for accurate speed tests. I really hope you mean Mbps.

My internet connection usually tops out at about 850kb/s (not kbps. which means that it actually downloads .85 of a megabyte per second)

I'm on a 7MB profile with bell sympatico, with unlimited downloads. (I EASILY download over 400gb a month)


btw, since the only people in this thread are gonna be those who give a **** about thier internet speed and downloading, check out btaccel.com

Its still in alpha, so dont expect it to be too good, but being able to download any torrent, without throttles at .5mb/s (use flashget or the like) = heaven.

BTW, btaccel uses a smart caching system, so if someone dl'ed the same torrent as you recently it will remain cached and dl immediately.

Dont ask me for codes, you can request em online.

Get your notations right,

Kbps = Kb/s
KBps != Kbps or Kb/s

lower case "b" stands for bit.
upper case "B" stands for bytes.

1 Byte (B) = 8 Bits (b)

and lately my torrent downloads have been 20-80 kb/s only. They use to be 400-800kb/s.

Screw you rogers, I guess I'm switching to teksavvy dsl soon.

Ivan, do you think that link you posted will work for me?

edit, other measurements:

Switch to DSL, and you'll be back to Rogers soon enough.

DSL is garbage.

Rogers + Newsgroups is where it's at.

Holy crap - I thought mine was decently quick but apparently not compared to cable! Download speed of 5.23Mb/s, upload of .66, and ping of 36ms (whatever that means). I'm with Bell on what I thought was their fastest service. Good thing my days of downloading mass amounts of porn are behind me
