How In The Hell Did Some Get This Fast On A Speed Test

How did someone get this fast on a speed test I have never seen anybody able to get this fast upload speed. I am also in Houston & I only get 24.6mb download & 3.6 up

Someone with a metro ethernet or other pure fiber connection with at least a 100/100 mbps service could easily get such a speed test result.

Tell us where you snapped that screen shot, and you will probably have answered you own question.

Note the source in the bottom left corner. This isn't being run from a home connection, it's a server in a hosting data center. In the case of the results posted, it's being run from a physical or virtual box hosted on »www.180servers.com 's network.

Looks like a 100/100Mbps connection. It could possibly be a business or school.

I did not initially notice that, so that definitely answers the OP's question. And I was right about the connection technology, it is 100/100 metro ethernet.

180Servers provides 100mbit ethernet connections on all servers.

espaeth See Profile got it right off the bat, pretty easy to do off a hosted server.
However depending on where you live in Houston, TX, you could likely match the download speed...for a price.
Home connections with that sort of upload are fairly rare.

Most of these speed test are when your using power boost true download upload is not even close to this

You are aware that fiber connections do not have powerboost, right ? That's more than likely what these 100+ Mbps connections are using.

That speed test is nothing. My college upgraded to gigabit ethernet in my senior year and would do 3 to 4 times that.

At this church office building I used to work at I would get 400/200mbit speeds on the regular, during the day. 96/79 is nothing amazing.

My office is in a municipal building and is fed by a Gig-E metro line. It's pretty much as fast as the NIC in the machine you are using.

Not hard to do with business service.

Sitting in my office, here's what I see this morning (network is a little busy at the moment).

A connection to a server in a data center is not "metro" ethernet.

i have the blast plan and only a few servers actually show my real speed, the one in baltimore, md being one. My recommended server (which is one hosted by comcast) gives me something like 25 download and my regular upload of 10.5

Is your school on the CalREN network? I was never able to pull more than 75 in each direction when I ran a speedtest.

Wow, quick than my home connection. Maybe next year I will catch up to those speeds. My current speed is 153Mbps/70Mbps.

That site is just like every other joke speed test site on the web. I am on a 1Gb up / 1Gb down that's directly connected to a router with multiple connections to the internet that range from 1Gb to 10Gb.

My test that was just run at 1:50 EST and it's showing 55Mb/18Mb. There is enough available bandwidth on my network that I should easily beat the daily download and monthly upload records posted.

CENIC's CalREN HPR and Los Nettos. Los Nettos has peering with NTT, HE.net, WVFIBER, and Any2IX at One Wilshire here in Los Angeles. CENIC connects all of the education together here in California, and peers with Internet2.

Most of our transit is off of the Los Nettos backbone.

To top it off, the consortium has 100Gbps to Cenic/Los Nettos (aggregate), each school gets 10Gbps - 20Gbps (5 colleges here)
