Decided to test the connection speed, after suspecting it of being slow for about a month... Basically the decision was triggered by use of Mike's laptop to test his wireless connectivity. The wireless connection was good, but it was the Internet connection itself that was bad.
So I performs a bunch of speed tests before I called Charter, and the average download speed was 873.25 kbps. High tapped out at 1.4 Mbps, and the low was 100 kbps.
And I just tested again. Here are the results.
1966 / 235
Your download speed : 2013612 bps, or 1966 kbps.
A 245.8 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 241331 bps, or 235 kbps.
Download = 2.258 Mbps
Upload = 245.67 kbps
CNet: 77.7 kbps
That's pretty bad....
