Besides IQ, I was wondering what sort of bandwidth all the Nekochanners had. I have COMCAST cable modem and at one time it was about 6000 Kbps, according to an online test, and then one day it jumped up to 18000 Kbps by the same test. It's the SpeedTest at www.speakeasy.net/speedtest
I'm running it right now, connecting to Atlanta, the nearest big city to Huntsville that has a speakeasy server on the list. (Seattle used to be the slowest, still is pretty slow!)
Code: Select all
It says 14249 kbps download speed, 416 kbps upload speed, for Atlanta.
It says 14410 kbps download speed, 416 kbps upload speed, for Atlanta.
It says 13792 kbps download speed, 418 kbps upload speed, for Atlanta.
It says 4898 kbps download speed, 412 kbps upload speed, for Seattle.
It says 5175 kbps download speed, 412 kbps upload speed, for San Francisco.
It says 5669 kbps download speed, 412 kbps upload speed, for Los Angeles.
It says 8581 kbps download speed, 407 kbps upload speed, for Dallas.
It says 8922 kbps download speed, 415 kbps upload speed, for Dallas.
It says 4898 kbps download speed, 412 kbps upload speed, for Chicago.
It says 9441 kbps download speed, 417 kbps upload speed, for New York City, NY.
It says 9511 kbps download speed, 414 kbps upload speed, for Washington, DC.
That's considerably improved from what it has been up until a recent upgrade. I used to get numbers < 6000 kbps download, and 358 kbps upload, fairly consistently. It looks like COMCAST made some good improvements, or else all these numbers are bogus and don't mean a thing?
This could be like those IQ tests where they tell you how smart you are and then offer to sell you a more detailed breakdown of your test results. I wonder if anyone actually would believe their results. They tell me I'm a genius. Gee, what's not to like? lol I've been telling people that all my life! I don't need to take a test to prove it.
Anyway, I've been involved in some discussion about intelligence at other groups and the subject can be rather interesting and get rather heated, but it's probably off topic for this thread.
Anyone else have any other ways of measuring network bandwidth? I am wondering if this speakeasy speedtest is just telling me what COMCAST wants me to think about my bandwidth, or if it's an accurate measure. Does it only work fast on the speedtest and not at other times? I remember some old graphics cards that were tuned to run well on particular benchmarks and even had tests in the code to make the test run faster, like knowing the answers to the popquiz in advance.
Perhaps this should be on a new thread. I'll move it to a new thread.
