    I've gotten over 350Kb/sec+ at home, that was of course before @home filed for Chapter 11 and AT&T took over, capping my upload speed at 1.5Mbps (used to peak at around 3.7Mbps or more)...

    Bastards... :) Anyway, not bad for cable, until you take into account the 128K upload cap... lol

    Also, I live in the ghetto so I'm sure I'm one of maybe 50 people on my entire street with a computer, let alone a cable modem... hehe

    this is true of highwind777, because he spends his time 24/7 tweaking his computer. he has no life.

    I don't know about fastest downloads, but I've uploaded at around 6mbits a second, and that's on NTL Cable with 512k/128k. My friend's download of Abode Photoshop 6 was done in no time :D

    I once downloaded a UNIX OS from Sun Microsystems, the speed came in around 700kb, the highest peak was about 735kb and the lowest was around 350kb. Must say, for a download as huge as almost one gig, it didn't take very long! :)

    I'm surprised you can even use BTOpenWoe, MdSilah :) I tried it, and was immediately disappointed with the service been constantly down and slow speeds (4-5kbps) when it did eventually came up.

    NTL isn't that much better for the majority of its customers, but the quality of service where I live is excellent :)

    4-5kbps is the average for 56k modems. :confused:

    Fastest... probably around 380k/s with my cable modem from Road Runner. It's not too bad of a speed but my upload speed really REALLY stinks! [​IMG]

    rofl ZeroChaos. I don't mean to diss you, but 4-5kbps is shit and is not the average 56K connection speed. 56K is usually around 4-5kiloBytes per second or 32-40kbps.

    Fastest ever 5 mbps, usually 1.5 -3 mbps on cable modem. I guess I'm lucky after reading some of the earlier posts.

    Speed!

    Hehe, I guess this is not fair, but I mostly use a rented line that has a max of 100MBPS. Never downloaded from a server that has that upload speed though, so I have never tested it to the max.

    Here's a picture from me downloading a redhat 7.2 iso-file yesterday:
