I was saying Kilo Bit... 30-80 kilo bits its around 10-15 kilo bytes. On a program download or somehthing not on kazaa i can get 215 KB/S (kilo Bytes)

I use a little program called Diet Kaza. Found out about it from a site called Slyck.com. It removes spyware also and claims it accelerates downloads. Just adding my two cents worth.

No, 1Kb (kilobit) is 1/8 of a KB (kilobyte). To find your bandwidth in kilobits, you multiply what you can d/l consistently in KB by 8. Like, On a fast server, I can get about 128KB/s. Multiplied by 8, my bandwidth is 1024Kb/s. Thus, 30-80kbps is 3.75-10KB/s.

 

***215KB/s = 1720kbps

my #%^*! is 768/128

 

so how would my go? at one point it went at 200kb/s on kazaa for like 5 seconds then dropped to its regular 70-90 kb's

 

 

so break down how fast mine should so

You should top out around 96KB/s on a good day. Generally when you initiate a download, it will read the data transfer rate higher than it really is. Mine usually starts around 350KB/s or so and then goes down to a steady reading. It's just in the way the program determines your data transfer rate. That's why they have different bandwidth tests for different internet speeds. If you want artificially fast results, choose a test for a somewhat slower internet service type.

dsl will be the winning future considering sbc's future purchase of direct tv wich provides directway... sbc also offers 7 mbs internet connection threw phone lines ..so its just the biggining while cable cant keep up with custermer demand and there cable costermers are dropping like flies

SBC is not purchasing DirecTV, Rupert Murdoch is. They also do not have 7mbps service, although they have a business 1.5-6.0 mbps burstable. DSL will never overtake cable; cable is not losing subscribers, merely the opposite. But the future is FTTH (fiber to the home) Here's one county with 100mbps fiber optic access: http://www.donobi.com/services/internet_ac...ccess/fiber.php :blink:

EEEEEEEEKKKKK look at the details though. limited data transfer. basically you could only have five gigabytes of data uploaded and downloaded combined per month. sorry.. but i dont wanna be limited. i use kazaa lite and i share over 20 gigabytes of music alone. not to mention bout 15 gigs of video/software. when i go to bed and leave kazaa lite running all night, like i usually do, then i get up in the morning and look at my uploads.. i know ive uploaded at least 200 megabytes. i never shut kazaa lite off actually. so in the day also.. thats another 200 plus. then you gotta take into account how much i DOWNLOAD. omg i download so much a month its nuts. i download music ive never heard just to listen to what its like and then delete it if i dont like it. i download movies to see if i like em or just to have them. and i browse quite often too. thats data transfer also.

 

basically.. for 40 bux a month.. and only a 5 gig data transfer cap, ill have to stick with unlimited cable. but 100 mbs SURE would be NICE. :)

dont get to happy i spend 34$ a month and got free modem with no service charge and its never slow so some of what your about to see is innacurate

http://www.cnet.com/internet/0-3762-8-2069...62-8-20697067-4

read this way at bottom the truth hurts

http://www.isp-planet.com/cplanet/tech/200...ter_030321.html

you can get 12 mbs if your in the right place try that with cable

now come on who nedds 100mbs maby a large company im in my house using a compaq.......im speaking of a afordable way of having high speed internet without paying an arm or a leg and never have slowdowns which i consider wrong while all you need to to is something right

ive had dial up

ive had dsl

i have cable

 

till im proven wrong.. cable is better overall and less probs. besides.. for 40 bux.. 1800 down and 240 up

you cant beat that. well ya can.. but i know one thing.. i have never EVER dropped a FULL 100 kb/s from downloads or uploads. comcast has done very well on my machine. ill take this of dsl.

 

on a second note.. a friend of mine has dsl. she reboots her computer.. its half hour b4 shes logged on or longer. sure.. shes smokin me in speed most days.. but not always.

 

some days ive seen her tests range from 800 down and 100 up.. all the way to 4500 down and 800 up.

 

i like consistency and comcast has been just that. till things change for the worse.. i like my cable modem

oh by the way... to get the 6.0mpbs speed, you have to be in their "zone" area.

You really shouldn't cite an article that's 3 months old:

Newdels, that 100mbps fiber is still a deal. You pay $40 a month, then $3 for every GB over 5 in a month. For a GigE connection, that's a freaking steal! Even if the setup costs were doubled it would still be worth it!!

Hey bigdog go here and test your speed.

 

http://www.dslreports.com/tools

 

Let us know how it goes. :mrgreen:

Your download speed : 1601805 bps, or 1601 kbps.

A 195.5 KB/sec transfer rate.

Your upload speed : 1324503 bps, or 1324 kbps.

Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!

 

 

is that ok?

Damn I want your upload. Who's your ISP? Can you run servers? Cuz that's a very fast upstream.
