Re: Its a bit slow..

750Mbps
what's your upload speed supposed to be, 750 as well?

Mine was somewhat close @ work (12Mbps fiber), though there is some traffic going in/out right now.

Agree that harvesting speedtest.net results would be a good idea.

Yes, 750Mbps up and down. We just got another ISP so you can add 200Mbps to that once we get BGP peering between our other two routers. I work at a data center btw. I just can't believe how slow it is, but then again, who knows how many users are trying to run the test right now.

Where I work, we connect to our 10Gbps backbone, but the internet is a lot slower than that because of the Cisco firewall filtering traffic. I'd wager you probably have the same situation - a firewall somewhere with a slower connection than the fiber coming into the building.

Crazy. What is 750mbps used for really? Cisco live office video conferences? :P

Our bandwidth (in the datacenter) is used for web hosting including a lot of multimedia content including tons of video, audio, podcasts and radio streams (we're a media company). The office bandwidth is used to transfer video (upload and download) to many places, as well as data replication to various other sites and vendors. We also have video streaming from reporters and of course the VPN, which is a story by itself.

At the last places I worked we've used bandwidth for VOIP, data replication to multiple datacenters and financial application data. However most links were not internet links. They were dedicated circuits.

We do no filtering at all. Just a firewall.

it not how many user are running the site it how many user are on this shared connection
750mbit is the total bandwidth of your data center
not dedicated to each user.
