    I have the normal basic 512k ADSL :(. You 2 guys make my connection feel like a snail (not fair) :p . I have only recently got it since i used to be on the laggy 56k and i think its a big improvement:p :D . But i am hoping in the near future to upgrade to a faster connection some time. But its the money thats the problem. Here in United Kingdom, Internet fee's are expencive :mad: as much as any other UK guy would know.

    What are the costs like in Internet Fee's in America? Cheap? Not So bad? Expencive? Ive always wondered how much AOL was in America since its a problem for you guys to stay online etc.

    I took this test a while ago at: http://www.dslreports.com
    If i do a speed test on a local (somewhere in Europe) server, the test results would be much higher of course. :rolleyes:
    Gonna try the cnet test later today (i hope).
    Right now my connection is really slow because my cable provider is switching over to a new network. :eek:

    Connection: cable.

    Don't kow much about it. I found this, though you may have already checked it. It is only offered for business.

    My latest speed test. I am on Roadrunner.

    for alex_is_axel

    I am paying around the $35 mark with student discounts for my connection..

    I am going through a router and have 4 computers hooked up online here (3 people total) and thats the basic setup... so I pay around 12 bucks a month (incl. tax)...

    its not too bad... cheaper than DSL in my area...

    I use certain tweaks from www.speedguide.net to sped up my connection... it works a tad...

    speed has been generally increasing in the university area from when I first got cable...

    I used to get an average of about 450 kbps... now I can gernally hit in the 1 meg region...

    but I need to find out where xsiv lives so I can go and borrow his cable modem for a few years :D

    It is Toast. There are several tests from different places that can be run there. Some are free, some are not. I used the Toast free - all tests. Just enter your ISP and your connection type.
