Idea totally stolen from Buzz_Clik. 

 
So I decided I wanted to see how everyone's internet faired against mine. 
 

What to do.

 
Go to SpeedTest.net and pick the recommended server for your area and wait for the test to finish. You then copy your direct link into your browser and save the picture as an image and post it here. 
 
This is essentially a census to see how fast or how slow your speed is, I've heard pretty crazy things about Sweden's speed for instance but I'd like to see some more world wide results. 
 
Here is mine: 
 

Not bad for a wireless dongle. 

So post your results here as an image!

14.80mb/s for download on the wireless with my laptop.

For mobile broadband, I'm always very impressed with my speeds.

Keep in mind that this is wireless.Wired it goes up to like 50.And this is the cheap internet.There is another one that goes up to 100, but 50Mb/s are overkill as it is. 
PS:Romanian Data Systems FTW.

Yeah... I pay for 24 Mb/s, but I guess my wireless router may be flushing a bit of it away.

This is skewed since I was streaming Endurance Run and chatting on skype at the same time. But man my upload is shit. 
#16 Posted by DerekDanahy (875 posts) -
 Pretty much cheating though since all of this speed has to power a whole campus, but it is still my internet.

Speedtest seems to be "full", because at the moment I can barely get over 90.
Also it gets my ISP wrong. :(
 

 In reality my dl is actually abit better than that.
#22 Posted by heatDrive88 (2339 posts) -

God, I hate all of you. I could never see that sort of internet speed where I live.

The worst part is, that's almost double what I can get through my DSL connection at it's very most.

@RiotBananas:  How is this at all official? Sounds pretty unofficial to me!

15.04 down 
1.56 up
 I miss on campus internet. Usually my speed is more around 4 mbps down. Playing games on it is unbearable at times.

It's a decent speed for the thousands of people that use it daily I guess.
#27 Posted by SMTDante89 (2581 posts) -

Keep in mind this is where I go to college, so a lot of people are using this.  Might edit this later to see about what it's like when I'm at home.

#29 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

10Mb down, 1Mb up, which is what my ISP (Get, Oslo) advertizes. I'm not in charge of my internet so it's fine.
