    Default Your Internet Connection Speed?

    Check out CNET's internet bandwidth tester. Unlike other sites, there's nothing to download as it runs from the site. I have Charter communications cable broadband and here's what I scored:

    I called Charter and asked why it's so low and they told me I probably needed the latest version of Java. So I went to the Java site and downloaded it.

    They weren't kidding!

    Yeah this isn't giving the right results at all...I'm on a data center's internet and it says I'm at dial-up speed?

    f*ck that test
    It's like JFK announcing the moon mission. He had no expertise in space travel, and no way of knowing if it would work. He just announced "we're going to the moon" and then they made it happen because everyone was on the same page and working towards the same goal. If he had said "well, let's get some people in space, and we'll see how far out we can get, and if I find someone to make a rocket strong enough, we could possibly approach the moon's orbit and maybe land" it wouldn't have happened.

    How much speed am I expected to lose via wifi? My laptop gets only about 1.7Mbps via wireless
