Hubby just called and asked me to run this test on the computer.
I went to this site
http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/
then for me...clicked Atlanta.. Took it just a short amount of time and it calculated our DL speed and then the upload speed.

Michelle,

I have been using http://www.speedtest.net/

With speedtest.net I got download 9721 and upload 1592

With speakeasy.net I got download 18841 and upload 1583

Which is more accurate? I have no idea. I used Chicago for both of mine. The tests were run within 30 seconds of each other.

What kind of connection do you have to get that kind of upload speed? I'm just in the process of getting connected to an ATT fiber remote terminal and they're promising up to 6MB download but still only 750 upload.

prouss,

I am guessing you are on DSL? To get anything higher you need to be on cable broadband (I hope I am telling you correctly!)
