I'm at work now, and it's 14 times faster than my home DSL connection.

What will it be next? We could have a pool.

I'm going for 1091 and 208. Any other takers?

I assume everyone is testing using the recommended server, as opposed to something a distance away from their location?

Recommended server (New York in my case)



(note: This is actually damned close to the advertised speed I'm signed up for, 3.0/768. In fact it's proabbly as close as you'll get in the real world.)

The farthest away I could get--Vancouver:

Speaking of bandwidth, do any of you work for a provider? I'm in the market for some a few T1 lines at work.
