I'm currently deployed in Kuwait and have a download speed of 2 MB/s compared to back homes 3.5 MB/s. Is my current speed faster than yours?

#2 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Only the Canadians.

As for the speedtest people. DO they not kn ow the difference between a megabyte and megabit?

#11 Posted by GioSpy (99 posts) -

Using the common byte size of 8 bits, 1 Mbit is roughly equal to 125 kilobytes (kB) or approximately 122 kibibytes (KiB).

My score of 25.25 = 3156.25kB, otherwise known as roughly 3MB. No wonder they call you jar heads.

Yes I do know the difference, and mine is faster. And I'm in Canada. So ha.

I love how if you knew how many megabits were in 3.5 MB most of these "speedtest people" are still beating you or roughly the same.

#18 Posted by NathHaw (2760 posts) -

Moved into my new home. I like it a lot. What I don't like is that I sacrificed a lot of speed for a better location. You've got a faster connection than I.

#19 Posted by Sackmanjones (4652 posts) -

Wow, I feel ashamed to say i get around 4.5 MB

4Mb/s down, 1.6Mb/s up. 3G love.

#23 Posted by Capum15 (4821 posts) -

4 Mb/s down. So, about 4 KB/s / Half a MB according to some random calculator I googled.

My upload is a lot worse.

I'd love a MB download. I've gotten up to 7K with Steam, though it never lasts long.

That's because all the liberal whackjobs driving california into the ground refuse to touch anything Verizon with a 10ft pole. I bet you're the only guy on your line. lol

Ahh...well I'm not sure where that came from haha. Did California put a stop to Verizon expanding their FiOS service area?

All I know is FiOS isn't available everywhere even in California and most people get stuck with their DSL, which I hear isn't great or they get stuck with another cable company.

But yes....I am the only one on my line. I was the first one to actually request FiOS in my neighborhood so a guy had to come by and hook up the land line 2 blocks down in another alley.

Only an American would think 2 Mb/s would be something to brag about. Getting 21.34 Mb/s on wireless right now.

#28 Posted by Hector (3356 posts) -

13 down 1 up. :(

#29 Posted by guiseppe (2838 posts) -

Nope.

#30 Posted by zaglis (909 posts) -

@oatz:

MB =/= Mb

#31 Posted by AlexW00d (6189 posts) -

I get 40Mb/s down, so whatever that becomes in MB/s. I.E. faster than both of your connections.

#32 Posted by MikkaQ (10268 posts) -

I get around 3.5 and I don't have to go to Kuwait to do it, so I guess I win.

What was the question?

Also, this might me the only fucking forum where bbcode does not work and I can't seem to figure out how to add viewable pictures

It scares me that 7% of Latvia has faster than that. THAT'S INSANE.

#34 Edited by TheSeductiveMoose (3617 posts) -

Not too shabby for $8 a month. Especially considering I live in quite a rural area.

#35 Posted by Redbullet685 (6029 posts) -

Yes.

I've got my DOCSIS 2 modem and Black Diamond router eagerly awaiting Comcast to hurry the eff up for my area. Scheduled this coming spring.

You have to actually save the image to your PC and then upload it to the site under "insert image"

Canada has nothing to be jealous about: not your internet; not your army; not your country; and not your sullied reputation.

Agree with the everything but the internet. It really is awful and crazy overpriced everywhere except the big cities.

Consider yourself lucky to have internet. I'll be going to Afghanistan in three weeks and won't have much Internet access. We'll be on a mountain side and will get access to computers once every 2-3 weeks when we go behind the line to take showers and stuff.

@BoomBlasta: You went to that garage sale Nasa was having didn't you?

Ouch that sucks. With that said I'm glad to be a 25B30. I'm an Information Systems Supervisor in a logistics command unit. If I'm going out side my air conditioned office building, barracks, or dfacs I'm doing something wrong.

#47 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -
