Trying to load a 30+ minute video on YouTube is the worst, as our connection cuts out at least once per hour.

oh wow. My upload speed is worse than Hughes?

This is the best result I got after several tries with that server (well, except for one time when I got 0.52, but considering pretty much every other time I got in the 0.20s, I think I'm already being rather generous). Then for fun I tried with the Tokyo server.



My upload speed to Tokyo is the same as to a place 100 miles away? Is that normal?


And my download speed is about 30% slower than it was a year ago.

Sorry for the spiced ham, but maybe you guys need better linemen. 

Here's another one for you:

I can only assume that Virgin Mobile is located there, or at least their nearest server is. I'll repost on the 16th when my plan restarts.

Edit: Tried Wi-fi.

:D, however the upload speed is surprisingly slow and the distance is inaccurate. (Hint for stalkers: I am within that 50 miles)

Here's my school guest wifi:


I wish my normal browser worked with it.

Verizon master race reporting in.

Too bad I'm moving at the end of next week, time to take advantage of these speeds and finish downloading the heisei sentai series
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

After changing to OpenDNS:   




I haven't finished testing OpenDNS and may not stick with them, but thought I'd share.

FAIL. >:(
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

I took the this test maybe a year ago? And got an F- (slower than 97%). So at least it's improved.  ... :/

I ran a test of the top 50 servers and came up with:



Not a statistically significant increase, but I'm switching to a wireless home network and thought it'd be worth checking out. 

... Edit:

New DNS and wireless only on my wife's PC:


She was worried about surfing the net without a wired connection, but I think she'll be happy.
