FOR CABLE/DSL/T1/T3/FASTER ONLY!

Hey all,

I think our web host is slow. Please use the link and info provided to run the BandwidthSpeedTest remote server test.

http://www.bandwidthspeedtest.com/speedtes...t/rs_start.html

Go there, then put this in the box:

The image size, in the next box is 2194.

Please report the results here; the test may take a minute to complete.

Thanks!

Okay, I got 99.7 kilobits per second (so 12.2 kilobytes per second). That's coming through a gigabit internet connection...

From Montreal:

Your raw speed was 166874.78 bits per second.

There are 3 meaningful ways we can interpret this number:

Communications

166.9 kilobits per second

How communication devices are rated. Kilo means 1,000 and mega means 1,000,000. Examples include 56k modem and 10Mbit Ethernet

Storage

20.4 kilobytes per second

The way data is measured on your hard drive and how FTP programs measure transfer speeds. Kilo is 1,024 and mega is 1,048,576.

1MB file download

50.3 seconds

The time it would take you to download a 1 megabyte file at this speed.

Remote server

The accuracy of a speed test is highly dependant on the test server and the image size specified being correct. Please keep in mind that with this test both of those are out of the control of Bandwidth Place.
