Post Your Record Download Speed

Recommended Posts

My boss opened a port range for me and I'm getting 4.5MiB/s download and upload speeds here at work :P

My workstation here isn't that great either:

Sempron 64 3000+

1GB DDR PC2700

GeForce MX400

40GB Seagate Barracuda

D-Link 10/100/1000 Ethernet

2x AvidAV 17" 1280x1024 8ms LCD monitors

Okay i have been using utorrent for awhile now, but this being my first post ill pass on my experience of it...

10Mbit Down 512kB Up

ISP - NTL UK

When i first started using Utorrent my speeds were not that great (yeah im talking about a 10Mbit connection here so they aint that great), around 390kB/s download on average, but after following the advice on this forum, by using TCP Optimizer, correcting my settings, getting rid of that damn disk overload error...oh and patching the TCPIP.SYS file...while im on that subject, it dont matter if you patch it or not!!! Just means you "kinda" connect to them quicker and im all for that :P

Either way my connection now averages on a decent torrent which isnt be killed by non sharing leechers at around 500kB/s to 600kB/s.. and on a Ubuntu torrent at 1.2Mb/s as long as i drop the upload speed cause my router cant handle it lol :D

Not bad for a shitty 3 year old sony laptop and a even shitter Buffalo router! But with a 100Mb by the end of next year and a Gigabit for 2010 from NTL im looking forward to the next few years :P

I used to get 120kB/s on a 1Mbit ADSL line, but we recently swapped to a cable (NTL) 1Mbit and believe it or not even though the line speed is the same I'm getting 300kB/s+ down. Nearly 3x improvement! Wierd.

Nope, we're on 1Mbit cable, the basic package. At least we're definately being charged for 1Mbit.

But then again I've never heard of a 1Mbit cable connection doing more than 130kB/s - tops.

Well, to be fair, the OpenOffice.org torrents are relatively small torrents to be testing for high speeds. By the time speed really ramps up for fast connections, the torrent would likely have finished already.

Slackware torrents might fare better for testing fast connections.
