    I will have to try this when I get back home this weekend. Dont have time now.

    I have comcast. My upload speed is right on. I pay for 6meg dl/1meg up, so my upload is right there. But my downloads suck balls compared to what I pay for.

    I think comcast just sucks, because where I lived before we had a business class 16meg connection and the most I got was 1.9meg dl. Just crappy. We have Verizon fiber in my area so I will have to check prices with them.

    You have to be carefull with the claims of some ISP's. They will claim to be providing a 6d/1u service and what they really mean is; You will be able to access information INSIDE their network at those speeds. Once you step outside their network, they cannot help you.

    Most companies operate the same way. No ISP will guarantee you any speed beyond their network. The trick is finding a reputable one that you know performs well (such as COX).

    I did once have a problem with COX though. Wall->Modem->PC = Great. Wall->Modem->ROUTER->PC = Packet loss galore. They kept telling me that it was my problem because of the router. They wouldn't explore it any further. I bitched for about 2 hours until I finally got a decent tech on the phone that found that the Modem MAC and the Router MAC were generating 2 different IP's. The IP linked to the Router had a terribly jumbled config file at COX's end.

    A twist on Jeff Foxworthy:

    Was that 1.9 MB/s (megabytes) that you saw? They measured it in 16 Mb/s (megabits). There's 8 megabits in a megabyte.
