Wow, I'll be lucky to get 2000 KB/s.

I would say I average at around 1000 KB/s.

DOCSiS 3.0 is supposedly coming to my town I should have 50mbps speeds available soon. Conveniently when the City of Omaha is lobbying for Google Fiber. Not trying to protect the monopoly, nope, not Cox.

Anyways:


Right now at 5 PM. Not bad for the fact that due to a glitch in the system I get the highest speed, but pay for the 2nd tier.

I live in Omaha as well. Are they really installing DOCSiS 3.0 here? And does that mean Cox is going to have those 50 mbps speeds, or is that the google fiber they are lobbying for?



Edit:

Mmmmm, Dallas server is faster.

I see commercials for it. Well, dumbed down commercials, they don't exactly say DOCSiS 3.0. Also, may I ask what plan you are on? If you don't mind saying.

I'm on the second tiered plan as well, the one right below Premier. Planning on moving out soon and then I'll be getting myself the Premier.... see how much faster that is.

EDIT: Just hit 10MB/s! YAY!



It says u are grabbing from "localhost" that sounds like you are downloading from a server on your local network at home. And ummm 10 MB/s Megabytes a second doesn't sound right. Are you on 50mbps (megaBITS/per second) FIOS? Even that will probably only get you around 4 MB/s at best.

Sweet! That is some fast internet..... That accelerator must speed up the download 10 MB/s is really really fast.... But i guess i have about 20mbps and get around 1.5MB/s if i'm lucky, so i guess that is more than 5x faster:
me: 20mbps download, gets 1.5MB/s
you: 100mbps download, gets 10MB/s
Righteous!

Too bad they don't have 100mbps enabled on dorm/apartment jacks, only in classrooms

My internet speedo is hovering somewhere between "DSL ERROR: LOL I'M DROWNING" and "Meh, there's half the 5mbit you're supposed to have, now go away you bother me"
