Congrats on the cable Commando and you to (GIT)r-man when you get it.

25-04-2002, 07:22 PM
370.9 kbs :)

I think those tests dont really work, (read it in a magazine)
the best way is to download a huge file sevral times (at different times) and time it
then do some math
Also, cable varies with how many people are on at the same time, so 6 PM is different than 2 AM
(but I also have cable) (its fast too, 100 kbs - 350 kbs on big - small files respectiveley [for some reason])

I've tried downloading several things, ranging in size from a few hundered k to the 23mb CS update, I'm getting 120k on average.

And I ping 38 to UK TFC servers, I will have to try some US servers.

A super fantastic ultra l337 super hyper mega 26.4 Kbbs Connection!

Over an ultra L337 CS ripping Winmodem!

My ping is lower, but I lose packets like mad..:rolleyes:

I use a 33.6 modem... i never drop packets, and my speed is always constant, i love hardware modems :D :D :D

I'm using cable aswell, 64k/s
it's pretty nice :)

That's a little slow for cable, Creeping Death :/

That's about the same speed as 64k ISDN

And about a tenth of what I get (mine is a little slow compared to other cable on the comparison chart)

He means 64 kps download... not 64kbit....

26-04-2002, 03:43 PM
Agh, I wish I could have ADSL, too., but I'm living in a damn village (350 ppl) in the outback. :mad:
It will take years until it reach Langenschade (that's the name of the village, in tantrums of endless frustration we call it sometimes Little L.A. :D )

27-04-2002, 08:40 AM

27-04-2002, 05:41 PM
If I ever get cable in my area, I'd die in a horde of flying pigs.

Damn BT.

27-04-2002, 06:38 PM
At the time i'm writing this post, it's 00:32 which makes it Sunday, and i'm getting adsl on Monday :D

Me's can't wait...

28-04-2002, 09:49 AM
eeh I meant 64kb/s ... :)
asin: 512k

29-04-2002, 01:51 AM
the fastest i can download is about 50 k/s . so im dissapointed with bts dsl .
i get a 30 k upstream though , so i can run a ok server so its not all bad .

i got 512 k cable and i download with 64 kb/s , the same as creeping death

29-04-2002, 07:59 AM
Hi speed cable- it kicks DSL's @$$
BTW somewhere on Cnet.com there is a modem speed thingamajigger. Tests yer speed. I'll find it and edit this post to include the link.

29-04-2002, 12:37 PM
I've got it, and i'm going at 832kb/s :D

Havn't tried downloading yet....
think i'll get IE 6.0 finally...

02-05-2002, 01:25 PM
I hate all of you ppl with cable/DSL.... but not for long... Currently I am running on a 64KB/s ISDN networked to 3 PC's. But the reason for the not long is BT have finally booked up their ideas and started to give us ASDL in the Doncaster area..... so soon i can start shouting "YAY, no more lag while playing SC and dad's downloading!"
