Seems fairly accurate..a lot of times with these tests you get inconsistent results though.

you can try http://www.testmy.net/tools/test/d_load.php

Which works pretty good. I always do the smart test.

Mine is usually very high. even when I had my cable modem it was very high, but changed the cable out for DSL. saved a few bucks every month for it.

Slow up-load speeds. I guess that's consistent with cable modems? I see a big difference in down-load and up-load speeds. Would DSL be more evenly matched?

Cable, server out of NY, NY.

I should try it from SCSU's servers. That school has an amazing connection, has to be T1 or better.

T1 maxes out at just above 1500Kb/sec. Modern cable and DSL connections are much faster.

I get 750 down, 300 up connected to cable, through the VPN at work. I'll have to try it when I'm disconnected.
