Ask the Readers: How Fast is Your Internet Connection?

The federal government recently announced a broadband initiative that calls for 260 million homes to have 100Mbps Internet connections by the year 2020. This got us wondering, how fast is your current Internet connection?

When it comes to the speed of our Internet connection, we all want the maximum possible. The FCC recently announced their National Broadband Plan, which is an initiative to improve the Internet infrastructure in the United States and provide higher speeds to everyone. You’ve also undoubtedly heard the news about Google getting into the mix with their program to bring ultra high-speed fiber broadband to 50,000 users in select cities.

While we wait for those programs to come into fruition, we thought it would be cool to check out what kinds of speeds you’re getting now.

Test Your Internet Connection Speed

There are several sites out there you can use to test your Internet speeds, but probably the best site is Speedtest.net. It’s easy to use, and allows you test download and upload speeds to and from various locations in the US and throughout the world.

If you already know the speeds you’re getting leave a comment and let us know. If you use Speedtest.com, just keep in mind that our comment system won’t allow you to copy their result links, but you can simply tell us what you get in the results. We’re especially interested in the results of those of you who have Verizon FIOS or Comcast’s “Ultra” service. Leave a comment and join in the discussion!

    I have only 0,5 mb :D. We have 2 computers in same network :) it’s a pain!

  2. YoHoHo

    19.27 Mb/s download, 0.98 upload, 24 ms ping. Distance 50miles. Guess I better stop complaining about roadrunner.

  3. abrarey

    Mine is around 31.88 Mb Down and 1.89 Mb Up.
    Using Road Runner.
    Pretty nice, I didn’t know that I have that much speed.

  4. Trevor Bekolay

    I have Rogers Extreme up here in Ontario, Canada, and I get the advertised 10 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up pretty consistently. Annoyingly, I can’t upgrade to the next tier with 25 Mbps down and a higher cap because it’s not offered in my area.

  5. mpcrsc562

    I pay for 10 down and 1 up, but consistently get between 15 to 20 down and 1.5 to 2 up.

  6. Terry

    Mine is 13 down and 8 up. Which is wonderful because I came from 1.7 down and .128 up. However, it would have blown my mind when I first started using dial up when I lived in a rural area. I usually got connected at 18k. It took me 45 minutes to download a song.

  7. Zach

    I am using wireless. I get 5.02 mb/s on the download and .53 mb/s on the upload. That is fast for a rural community where I live

    Remember when you run your test to make sure there aren’t any downloads running… or Torrents for sure. Run from a freshly booted system with any intensive internet apps disabled.

    I have 1.96 Mb/s down and 0.36 Mb/s up. And Mystic, while I do appreciate the “check from a fresh reboot with nothing running” that’s like saying what is your speed on the highway at 2:30 AM on a Wednesday, rather than during the rush hours when we are usually on and happy if we are moving. For the record, I was playing a poker game at the time on Full Tilt.

    We pay for a 2Mb/s ADSL connection, but generally our download speed is 1.5Mb/s. I just tested it on Speedtest.net, though, and was amazed as it showed a connection speed of 4.59Mb/s … nice if that’s correct! Upload speeds are .37Mb/s. The worst problem is ping; here my ping is 281ms! This is from TT&T Maxnet in Tak, Thailand.

    I occasionally connect via EDGE sharing from my phone, and then usually get speeds of about 300Kb/s down and 100Kb/s up from the DTAC network (and had similar performance on T-Mobile when in the US).

    I have the Comcast Ultra Business Package, and I work at home. I am a web site admin for several sites, and a home account wouldn’t work for me because of the Comcast 250 gb cap. I go over that easy uploading / downloading new content to all of the sites. Anyway, I get 50 + down and 10 up, but I pay out of my nose for the service, over $190.00 a month. Quest, which is also in my area could only produce 20 down with fiber optics.

    It would be a lot cooler if peeps would share the name of their provider when they post their speeds, ya know, for comparisons and junk.
    I got AT&T Uverse now, just outside San Antonio TX.
    11.52 down and 1.48 up (thats megaBITS) w/40 ms pingtime. Those speeds are consistent at any time. I pay for the mid tier speed which is 10 meg down guaranteed.
    Neighbors who use more expensive Roadrunner (Time Warner) sometimes get equal or greater speed, but during peak times their actual speeds are much slower because of network traffic.
    Because my internet shares the same pipe as my hi-def tv feed, my internet speed can be affected somewhat when I watch or record more than 2 simultaneous HD cable tv channels. The slowest I have ever seen is 8.5 down. Still darned good.

    I have to (unfortunately) use HughesNet’s satellite system for an ISP that is faster than dial-up. Yes, it is faster, but NOWHERE NEAR the speeds they imply in their advertisements on television! A recent development out here in “the boondocks” will soon let me use an alternative ISP to HughesNet that will indeed be not only faster, but without upload/download restrictions that HughesNet has.

    The speed testing company has my ISP as being located somewhere in Kansas, but it is located in Germantown, Pennsylvania. There is no way to change the ISP location in the SpeedNet page to where it SHOULD BE, so the results I obtained are totally bogus!

  100. AldoP

    I’ve got Basic Internet from Comcast and that usually gives me around 8Mb/s downloads and 5Mb/s uploads over my wireless network. SpeedTest has given me scores as high as 18Mb/s downloads but I think those are just short term quirks in the test. I’m upgrading next week. I’m not sure what I’m getting because Comcast is throwing the upgrade in for free because I am changing my phone service over to Comcast.

    Funny you should ask this. I have been using speedtest.net for the past few days with astounding results. My ISP gives 2.00Mbps in the package but I found I was getting 0.81 consistently over 4 or 5 days.
    This morning I was getting from various UK servers and from L.A. N.Y. Irkutsk, Melbourne, Rekjyvik etc. speeds of 4.53, 6.18!!, 9.72!!! from Manchester, UK, etc. etc. many around 1.80 – 2.25.

    Then I had an idea – my previous very low readings were done via IE8 and those huge ones above were via Google Chrome! I went back to IE8 for retest and there were the low readings. Anyone know? I have contacted speedtest but have had no reply as yet.

    Hughesnet uses ku band technology, which means they will have slower internet than satellite internet companies that use ka band technology. Hughesnet will try to sell their service as having the latest satellite technology, but in reality their satellites have to be positioned further away from the earth, meaning their signal has to travel further. For this reason ka band is faster. Although, there are others, WildBlue is by far the largest ka band satellite internet provider. I would recommend them. I have a blog that only talks about the latest in satellite internet. Just search for MyBlueDish in Google and you will find me.

  149. Dennis A

    All this proves is that these results are meaningless. The results given above are only from one server for a start. If you try different ones you will see that the speed from a next door server can be much slower that one 10,000 miles away and if you use different testers you will get very different results from the same servers AND if you are using Google Chrome the results will be much faster that using IE8 and perhaps different using other browsers.

    My ISP has a cap of 2.00Mbps but I have got many results of up to over 9 Mbps.

    So suggest we all forget about these results.

    It gives different results each time you run the test. Even if you run the tests concurrently it will give very different result each time. It gave me 1.4 MB download and 0.09 MB upload the first time and 0.86 MB download and 0.13 MB upload the second time. Don’t know which is the actual. It’s LAME…! :P

    I tested at 0.78 Mbps download, 0.50 Mbps upload and a 305ms ping. I would be happy with this IF I could believe the results. I live in Canada in the Western Province. The test had me in EUROPE. That is BOGUS, I pay $35 a month for my internet with my local phone company. I tried to even shift the contries but to no avail the test wants me to live in EUROPE, Not Canada where I reside. I don’t believe the results.

    Fiber is the future it carry’s much more bandwidth, it’s immune to electromagnetic interference, can go farther distances without attenuation and it’s more secure being much more difficult to place an eavesdropping device on Fiber.
