I pay $50 a month instead of $30-something. It's not much more, and it's definitely worth it.

I don't host any sites at home, I pay web hosting companies to do that, but I would like to host some less-trafficked site one day.

I used to work from home, and my hobbies are Internet-demanding, so downloading databases and large files is easiest with a fast connection.

Your raw speed was 1582426.56 bits per second which is the same as:

Communications

1.6 megabits 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

193.2 kilobytes per second

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

1MB file download

5.3 seconds

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

Compared to all connection types worldwide, yours is fantastic

WOW, now if I just get that added memory I should be set!

I'm on a school computer right now. I honestly have no idea what kind of connection we have here, so I put "other".

Communications: 1.7 megabits/second

Storage: 203 kilobytes/second

1mb download: 5 seconds

When I try this from home, this is going to be seriously depressing! There we have dialup.

Mine is a basic ADSL package for 39 bucks Canadian per month (about 27 or 28 bucks USD per month... so not a bad deal I guess)

Cable, Roadrunner, didn't expect it to be that high, tried a couple times and results were similar. Maybe I have an advantage since the testing server is out of Texas. Really not too far from Texas??
