Just curious how fast everyones connection speed is. You can tweak dial up just a tad. I'm on cable and have tweaked my settings quite a bit from the original settings. It's pretty dam quick and like it! Whenever it's slow, especially here I know it's not me.
If anyone cares to here is a link to test speed. Speed varies from different sites but if everyone uses the same it doesn't matter. Check it out at one near you. http://www.speakeasy.net/main.php?page=sup_pops

Here is a link on my test, it's near the same most of the time. It hasn't been below 3000 kbps lately. http://www.dslreports.com/speedtests/3246986;284495;78b21dcd3069c2a6f2677a61a0ee3ac1;2. 0;lax.speakeasy.net/1039938469

Eat your heart out dial up peoples! LOL /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Until someone puts some decent streaming video of pool matches on the web my 56k will do just fine:

For $5.95 a month I'm not complaining.

My download speed was 830 kbps and my upload was 365 kbps.

By then again, we're paying Comcast a bunch, so it better be good.

Uh, that was Rod's speed. My speed is 1538/68 kbps down/up.

Cool test!

Is what everybody pays for their connection. I use to be on AOL hell, dial up too. When their rates went up to $23 per month I said bye bye. Cox charges $30 per month for a very good service. In different parts of the country though I'm sure this figure is considerably higher. With this connection you don't do much more than blink and your connected. With a little tweaking I've increased my speed near 1000 kbps, part of it due to better service. Anyway just some info for everyone. Here is a link with part of my settings and my IP Addy X, out. The guys and gals at these forums sure helped me out and still do sometimes. They prob can't play pool though! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Get the violins out. I live outside a DSL zone, and too far away from a telephone company's central office to get anything decent. 100yards away, my neighbor sometimes gets something in the 40K range. I wish I was so lucky.

I can't even do Satellite, as my trees block the southern sky (necessary). Cable internet is years away for us.

This is a sad state as I'm sure I've owned a personal computer long before 99% of the world, and yet I'm so far behind everyone.

Fred, tunes are playing as I speak. LOL It seems there is always some kind of trade off to have what we want.

In case it helps, just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. Quite a tradeoff we make for our lifestyle, eh? Not only are you and I too far away from everything with high speed internet years away, we also don't have any neighbors close by and our dogs can run free as dogs are meant to do and our chickens can roost in the trees and we can walk around naked outside if we want to. We just can't surf the internet in a timely fashion and we have a helluva commute to work!

There are also benefits to living in a neighborhood. I have neighbors that pay me to NOT "walk around naked outside". /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

(Not that I'd necessarily recommend minidish service, but if you're begging, and not choosing. . . .)

~~I've even seen a minidish mounted on an easel-like rig, at the apartment complex I used to live at--the people would take in in at night!

I do not have dsl because the hub is too far away. The cable modem here is bad 56 in the evenings, so we are still on dialup . I do not hsve a problem. The pages generally load pretty fast, not like lightning but within a few seconds. I think lots of ram and vram helps here too.

In my bedroom it says 26k connection but my p3 1gb,256k, 32vram loads pages quicker than in the other room, which says 56k and the computer is 400mhz,96ram,vram 8.

Cable is blowing DSL away. I'm going to switch when it becomes available here in 2003. It was suppossed to be here in 2002.

Tom,

Back home where my family still is, cable modem really rocks. Here in the metropolitan dc area, it gets so congested with all the people on in the evenings that it is sometimes no faster than a 56k dial up. For a person who is using it during the day, ie a evening worker, home employed etc, the speed is okay.

Since you are in Brooklyn, near NYC, you might want to check around with other cable users to see what kind of response they are getting.

According to this computer network guy we know, dsl etc is good if you are close to the source but if you are near the end of the line, service isnt good so you have to consider where the lhub(i think that is right) respective to how many feet away is your house.

i dont know if any of that matters with cable but how congested it is in the evenings if that is when you want to use it, might be an issue.
