Comcast has been advertising 6 megabits connection speed lately – my experience sure doesn’t feel like that, so this morning I ran some tests.
Here’s what I got. First, using the test at dslreports:
2005-11-09 09:18:00 EST: 6197 / 736
Your download speed : 6197 kbps or 774.6 KB/sec.
Your upload speed : 736 kbps or 92 KB/sec.
And then using CNET’s test:
644 Kbps – You 644 kbps
Am I experiencing problems, or is this typical?
Brian points out that the dslreports test above actually did show that I was getting 6 megabits per second download speed, and he’s right. I should’ve seen that myself, though why the discrepancy between that and the CNET test?
Today I’m getting:
2005-11-11 11:49:23 EST: 3058 / 302
Your download speed : 3058 kbps or 382.3 KB/sec.
Your upload speed : 302 kbps or 37.7 KB/sec.
Cnet reports 1758.6 Kbps.
