interesting... at home to a "local" test site my upload is capped to about 2/3 the speed I would get if I do the same test across the country to the opposite coast...

I'm going to miss this Fiber Optics service when I move from the area in a couple of weeks.

I want fiber optic lines...Cable just isn't fast enough. But I also think back to my old 56.6 with a bit of longing for the connection noise.

On cox at home I get 16 download and 32 upload. Ping is like 16. Don't ask why my upload is so high, we are supposed to get one mb, but even the cox service men don't know why. Still, helps to host lobbies!

@okham: Most cable companies use fiber optic lines... Charter, Cox and Comcast, the three fastest ISPs in America use fiber optics. That's how they are able to offer 100Mb down and at least 5Mb up in most areas. There's some people that can get more upstream speed but more than 5 is not offered because it's not guaranteed.

@rabidmonkeyoncrack: That speedwave feature is neat but it's unfortunate that it cannot have our woot userids automatically associated with our speeds. Each of us would have to create an account with them to use that userid feature.

My speeds:

23.81 Mbps - Download Speed
15.28 Mbps - Upload Speed

@rabidmonkeyoncrack: True that they might use Fiber Optic cables to connect and create an internet backbone but not in the neighborhood. That's still copper so it can be compatible with existing wires. If it was fiber all the way to the home, how would you get fiber connected to your TV? You would need some expensive adapter so they avoid that by using copper close to the homes.

We pay for 12mbps down but get 18-20 mbps on average. Charter is awesome.

@rabidmonkeyoncrack: Yeah, Time Warner is not in the habit of upgrading their services.

I was totally just dubbed "Champion of the Internet" and "Overlord" in addition to receiving a "touchdown" and a "1-up".
Too bad that's not my home internet.

Dupe from 23 days ago, but I like my numbers, so I'll repost:

Here's mine from work ;-) (state university - 73 down, 34 up)

And here's home (31 down, 3.48 up):

Numbers are better today - I'm #531575379 on the Speedwave.

@cengland0: What? Do you realize what you just said? Even straight fiber-to-the-home is metallic wires at the end point. I don't know where my fiber lines end. I doubt they end at my home, maybe they get to the curb... But even if they did end at my home, connecting the fiber line to my TV with a coaxial is perfectly fine without any adapters on my end.

Yay! My office's connection is in the lead for upload speed - 82.80Mb/s.

My home connection downright stinks for upload and download, though. I'll be near the bottom of the rankings.
