Just learned that if you Google "speed test" you will get a speed test similar to speedtest.net but without all the flash and ads.

Since I don't have a static IP address, I guess it's ok that they publish it?

Also, we NETFLIX on two tv's at the same time, HD stream, with no troubles.

If you were streaming anything while taking the test, that might have affected it.

HD video is the hardest you'll ever push that connection, so unless you have any problems with it, like blocky video or pausing -- you're good to go!

I'm at 2.5mbps down and .5 up.
These seem low compared to the rest of you, but after 20 years at 30 kbps (that's K), I am in pig heaven.
It seems like 4259m (Dude111) would give you today's activity yesterday.

When I see a slow internet connection like that, I always think back to the old dial-up 56K connection and how that was the super duper fast connection of the day. I got my start on a 300 baud rate modem where you put the phone in the little cradle. It was my dad's Heathkit terminal he built to connect to the college mainframe.

I don't know the conversion. Maybe Google can help me, how many Mbps was 300 baud?

brb.....

This is confusing. It's the whole stupid MB is actually 1024 Bytes, not 1000 Bytes math always messes me up.


But I found a site that talks about the speed to send a 1M file over different services.

300 baud took 27,962 sec (or a week and most of a day) to send 1 MB.

My current service is 75 Mbps and while I can't find 75 Mbps at the site, I can find 100Mbps and take 75% of that. 75 Mbps will transfer a 1 MB file in 0.06 seconds.

My current speed is 466,033.3 times faster than the first speed I ever experienced.

BTW, a 56k modem could send a 1MB file in 144.7 seconds.

A 6.312 Mbps connection will send that file in 1.2 seconds, over a hundred times faster.

I begin to wonder how rural broadband could ever happen. Government intervention is out cuz GOP voters. Electric Coops could do it but that smells like socialism and they need permission to challenge monopoly. I guess this is just one more pressure to depopulate rural America.

Wireless. Dude you're in one of the white spots, don't miss out that there are so utterly few white spots. 99% of the rural south is up and running. Only mountains fuck up wireless, because physics.

ETA the Verizon map claims it covers 98% of US population with 4G!

I will attempt to be enthusiastic about other people's wireless and other people's fiber optic while I can't consistently send a text...





... or load the Verizon map apparently.

You can get a quote for a permanent wired circuit, which might be too expensive to install, but maybe if you share it with neighbors?

Do you happen to know if there is a local box your phones are wired to? Wherever the installer went to complete your circuit.

Do any neighbors have cable TV? Can you get cable yourself? What happens if you put in your address here:

Do you happen to know if there is a local box your phones are wired to? I think the phone box you're referring to is about 5.4 miles away. Wherever the installer went to complete your circuit.

Do any neighbors have cable TV? No. Can you get cable yourself? No. It isn't available. What happens if you put in your address here:

These services are not available in your area.
This is the cable search result for the nearest town 5 miles away.
