Internet speed(25 posts)
Scott W, in my opinion you are one of the best of the best. I'm not trying to brag,I'm not that way.The technician from Comcast, my (ISP)showed me the results.I didn't capture the results as I'm still a rookie at that stuff.I know about fiber optics as I've worked with the technology as an electrician and it may very well be that he showed me a screen shot to B.S me.
@Sparky and Scott, when I was at my Dad's, I saw similar burst speed results from his cable modem service with Cox Communications. On this web page, they explain the PowerBoost technology that they use which is probably similar, or identical, to what Comcast does. Even if this burst of speed only lasts for a short while, it sounds like a good feature. For however long it lasts, you are getting fiber speed at a cable modem price!
@Bobjam, that upstream speed is odd. If you have a dial-up modem, such as a V.90, the max upload speed should be around 36 kbps.
@ALL, the number that really matters is the real world throughput which can only be measured when downloading a large file, for example:
700 KBytes/sec on my 6 Mbps connection is quite satisfactory.
