Is your internet super fast and you constantly feel the need to brag about it? Or is it always slow and you constantly feel the need to complain about it? Well this is the thread for you! 

 

Feel free to post your internet speed results and discuss. 

 

 


Ooooooh, I am the last of the giants,

my people are gone from the earth.

The last of the great mountain giants,

who ruled all the world at my birth.

Oh the smallfolk have stolen my forests,

they’ve stolen my rivers and hills.

And the’ve built a great wall through my valleys,

and fished all the fish from my rills.

In stone halls they burn their great fires,

in stone halls they forge their sharp spears.

Whilst I walk alone in the mountains,

with no true companion but tears.

They hunt me with dogs in the daylight,

they hunt me with torches by night.

For these men who are small can never stand tall,

whilst giants still walk in the light.

Oooooooh, I am the LAST of the giants,

so learn well the words of my song.

For when I am gone the singing will fade,

and the silence shall last long and long.

Cody who did you have to blow at Time Warner to get that.

Fuck Time Warner. But Fuck Cablevision even more. I'm switching to FiOS next month. It's cheaper (for the first year at least,) and 3x faster.

 

But seriously Cody...

Cheater cheater pumpkin eater! I bet Cody's results are from where he works, which means the internet didn't have travel as far as it does for the rest of us. Less friction in the internet tubes, etc.

Nope! Though the secret of my success does indeed have something to do with my work, results were taken at my home. If you look at the picture you'll see I was testing it with a server about ~150 miles away.

 

Many ISPs are in the works of improving their infrastructure to increase the speeds they offer. We've already seen many increases roll out in the markets that Google Fiber has launched in. What a "coincidence," right? I'm fortunate enough to be in a position in which I get to test out a few things before they officially go live. Sadly, I'm temporarily back to my normal speed:

Must be nice to work at Time Warner and get to test out the fancy speed upgrades Cody. You suck.

 

Also speaking as a customer, every facet of Time Warner IS AWESOME. LOVE YOU.

To make it fair, you should pick a server for everyone to test to. You'll always be fastest to the one closest to you, but that's seldom where game servers are actually located. Most are in TX and CA.

Also, ew 31 ping cody?

Nearest to me.

I wish companies knew the importance of upload, but most are idiots about it.
