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

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 :)

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!

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:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
