    How do you copy the image code?  The results that I got were 35.58 down, 9.35 up.  I am a Comcast employee with the 22/5 tier.  I only pay $6.40/mo as an employee.  As you can see, the numbers appear to be inflated.  The server was Comcast in Philadelphia.

    I agree John, the numbers could be inflated. I am paying for the Comcast 12/2 tier and here are my results using a "N" router with a 1.0 Gbps connection.

    How long have you had those plans?You might have gotten a silent upgrade.I know that happens with Time Warner all the time.

    Hi Tony,

    I have had my plan for over ten years. For my ISP (Comcast) the next tier up wpuld be what John has which is the 22/5 tier. If they did upgrade me to that tier I should have better up and down speeds and I am sure that Comcast would want their $20 more per month.

    I can't fathom 22/5 being an option 10 years ago.Was it really?

    Anyhow,I'm enjoying these speeds here now because when I leave for Brasil in a week it's back to the 1mb dsl line again lol!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrr...

    Tony,

    Thought you were back in NYC to stay. You really will be slumming reducing your speed to a 1MB DSL connection. After what you have been accustom to it is going to feel like the old dial up connectoids. Safe trip my friend.

    This speedtest site is regarded as the best there is.
    Having said that I think I know why you guys are seeing inflated speeds.Comcast offers a boost feature which increases bandwith for the first 5 - 10 seconds of a download and upload.
    After that the speed goes down to your regular provisioned tier.

    sonyeslover,
    I had a 15/768 plan for years before the docsis 3 technology came to my area too.It was absolutely fine actually.I guess since it became available I had to have it.If I had to go back I wouldn't mind.

    Good call Tony, Comcast does use the "Boost" feature which could account for the inflated speed numbers.

    Yeah, to be honest I find the DL speed fine, but it's the upload I don't like...

    Tony,

    Glad you can laugh at those speeds, it's either that or cry. It has to be painfully slow compared to what you are getting back in NYC.

    Chattanooga becomes home to 1Gbps internet service, just $350 per month

    Gotta love GoodBytes comment.  Click here for the details, and my dial-up (you got mail) is doing just fine.

    Tony,

    If you are willing to shell out $350 a month you really are a internet junkie and have a lot deeper pockets then mine.  I would love to try that kind of speed to see what it is like though.

    My pockets aren't deep enough to do it and have the wife not kill me though.

    I used to rent a quad core server and re-sell game servers on it from a datacenter in a NYC.I would control it remotely with a program called tcadmin or just enter to the dektop directly.Boy I had a lot of fun transferring whole hard drive images around with that 100mb full duplex connection!It only costed me about $180 a month.Right now I bet I could get one for $130 with better specs yet.
