Guys, how accurate are these test results? I have slower results when I ping a server that is closer than these results that used a server in Atlanta. Is it an infrastructure issue between client and host?

Perhaps the most gratuitous sdvertising - since it is always "up to" such and such a speed. But only if you live beside the central office, and are doing something at 4:15am on a Saturday, and only for one or two packets, total.

Now really, USA, surely you can do better than that!
No, they can't. A government report that was much discussed in these forums rang the alarm bell that the Internet in the US is inadequate to fill needs, and that most people do not have access to "high speed", which was defined as 5Mb/s. It's worse in Canada, where most "high speed" connections are barely that much faster than dial-up, and not worth the price premium.

And it shows, not only because of the Internet, but all over the place. Like when the government allows so many people to slide into bankrupcy and the abyss of house foreclosures - while pumping in billions of dollars into failed crapitalist enterprises like GM, a company that cut tens of thousands of jobs and ruined communities.

It seems to me that it is like a herd of vultures picking over the carcass, while innovation and progress are accomplishments of other nations that strive to make a better future for themselves, rather than just thinking about some fraudulent get rich scheme.

And FiOS - that should be entirely banned, and executives put into jail for that scam. There should only be Fiber Optic - to every house and to every person. We should stop wasting time and effort on costly garbage technology that accomplishes nothing. Copper is entirely inadequate for modern tasks, and we need real Fiber Optic direct to every home and business. And we need to have an Internet that is about accomplishing business, like the ability to telecommute - rather than just being some dump where 80% of the traffic is spam and half of the rest is pron...

That's what I'm getting on my HTC when I'm on duty. At least it's uncapped :x
