Hate to burst your bubble, but that is reading kilobits.

It equates to about 115KB/sec, sorry :/

Darn ya GT, you beat me to it.

It doesn't help that IE's propogated the confusion by measuring its speeds in bytes. Technically, bandwidth is supposed to be measured in bits, and storage should be measured in bytes. Most developers these days tend to ignore those conventions completely.

And don't get me started on the 1024K vs 1000K megabyte issue.

OK,

928.8 kbits/sec is 71.2 kbits/sec short of 1000kbits/sec, which is 1Mbit/sec. A T1 line is 1.5 Mbits/sec.

I'm on insightbb. Latency is a sporadic problem here; not too often, but when it hits, it HITS.

Mine varies daily. Tonight I am 3096 down, 71 up. I was wondering why my image uploads took forever:eek:

That's all well and good, but the downside of it is that all Aussie broadband ISPs are metered. I'm really gonna miss my flash American cable connection when I move out into the Oz countryside. There's ADSL in my neck of WA, and thankfully WestNet has thrown their hat into the ring, so I'll at least have half-way decent service without having to sell a kidney (Telstra's DSL services in rural WA is the biggest rip-off I've ever seen).

I had a connection that topped out over 3Mbps until @Home folded -- Comcast has capped my downstream in half. Still the same ol' 128K upstream, but that's not much drama.

Well I've got the same speed as Sprung - onnly it says kB instead of kbits. Hardihar.
Oh, and remember this:
