Not too shabby, but not crazy fast either. It tends to hold up well enough for gaming, which is nice. The school doesn't allow servers of any kind, though. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a common thing, actually.

EDIT: Tested again, from a dining hall this time.

Has anyone taken YouTube's speed test? Right-click any YouTube video and select "Take speed test" to do so. My average video speed over the past month was 1.43 Mbps, whatever that means.

Well, according to Youtube, my connection is faster than my network (nearly 2x as fast), my city, my state, my country, the whole world.  (Should I be jumping for joy or questioning Youtube's algorithm?)

Home now, here's my speed on this connection.

Ack.  And yet, it still seems better than my college connection, for whatever reason.
If she is indeed genetically mutated such that she has an eye in the back of her head, then I guess that she is genetically mutated and has an eye in the back of her head.

Google puts us all to shame.

My phone is going to realize in a few minutes that I'm not paying for tethering, but until then, this is the speed I've got.

Lol.
Formerly quite reasonable.

Ran a test on the airport's wi-fi connection, for the lulz. I expected it to be slower than it actually is.
What's funny is that even though the airport is in Manchester, NH, apparently the test server in Manchester, NH wasn't the best one to use. That makes me chuckle.

This is my new Internet.

As some of you may know I have recently moved although I'm only six houses over and around the corner.  I haven't updated my cables/network yet, but here's my new speed:



While I don't expect much difference, if there is any significant change once I've updated this house's network I'll let you know.  I know some people that have fiber optics all the way to their PCs, but that is currently not an option for me.  I have fiber optics up to the house and cable from their.  The house is currently networked with CAT5 and/or 5e, but I'm in the process of upgrading to CAT6. 

Edit:  For comparison here's my speed from the same server as previously posted:

I'm on satellite internet, out in the sticks, so... yeah, it's pretty lousy. Thanks a lot, lack-of-competition-or-cable-in-rural-nowheresville. I'm not anywhere near Kansas, but the servers closer to me honestly aren't any faster.

My internet connection is nonexistent roughly 10% of the time. You *****es have no right to complain.

You're right. Mine's out maybe 3% of the time. Traditionally goes out whenever there's a heavy rain or it's overcast. Get blackouts about four times a year, around wintertime. Sometimes resetting the modem doesn't work, more a question of whether the webpage will arrive before the thing times out. $60 a month for 250 MB per day, and the competing services admit they can't do any better than that. Maybe it is a big hassle to get proper internet out to the last mile, maybe it was a big mistake after all to move out to someplace less populated with cheaper housing. But I still feel it's ridiculous that this is acceptable. It's not the lack of speed that bothers me, it's how low the cap is. I swear at some point mobile phones will have better plans than rural internet does.
