Pretty average result for my 7/896 service, using a local 3rd-party ISP.
(technically, I'm Qwest still according to my last bill )

Well, at least your latency is good.

You might also not want to publicly post your IP address. DSLR gets indexed by Google in a heartbeat.

This makes no sense but:
it won't show the upload but it was ping 66ms, down 1.46Mbps, up 0.23 Mbps. I'm paying for 1.5 & 0.256.

But I'm essentially certain that the latency, the time it takes to connect is something like 15 to 120 seconds. I will admit that the ping was quick, no more than one second.

It's so slow that it's unusable.

It's so slow right now that I can't even load speedtest.net. But I do have a handy app in Linux call conky that can measure my speeds while browsing. So I took this pic while downloading about 10 pictures. It fluctuates from 5KB/sec to the max of 32.5KB/sec. So my max speed in mbps would roughly be 0.26mbps. I should be getting 3mbps. No surprise from centurystink. I would upload a screeshot for proof but I can't. My internets are broken.

I know most all of these test sites are powered by the same Ookla, but I wonder if the host site makes a difference for anyone?

I just tested at one of my old fave test sites: »www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

Got this result from the closest server in Seattle.

Century Link dominated COX in AZ...i'm just saying. Brand new home...had cox for years...upload granted is awful...ping and download / upload is the same every day without a problem.

This is the 20/786 package...pretty much what you'd expect

Worked fine the past 5 months or so. Just started doing this on Tuesday.Started at about 8P.M., lasted til about noon on Wednesday...then it was back to normal. Started acting up again around 10P.M. on Wednesday, was back to normal by 6:30 A.M. on Thursday and that lasted until about 11:45 P.M. Now this is what I'm getting, and I don't know if it's going to be a temporary problem or if it's going to be like this for a year straight like it was before. I really wish I could switch providers.

My guess is only the unhappy people are posting..the Internet means ya can vent yer spleen anytime you want...so they do.

All of the happy users are just enjoying their service and probably don't even come here.
