Wow 740kbps...Normally when I download stuff it goes at 100kbs, not 740!?!?
Im guessing its the server... so does this mean that my Internet has the potential to download at 740kbps?!?

But wow I see things like 27mbps... I would download SOOOOO much stuff just for the fun of it.

Well, I had AOL dial up <GASP!> for many yrs...until 2 yrs ago. Imagine..8 years of dial up! I had cable until they decided to charge me for things that I didn't order. Now I have AT&T, which is wireless/phone connected. UVERSE isn't in my area yet..counting the days....well, months. Cable was MUCH more convenient, though, connectionwise! Whenever I reboot or turn the PC off with AT&T, the wireless adapter has to be reset with me disabling the WZC every time. AT&T "tech support" isn't very supportive. I have been told everything from "your adapter is bad" to "you may need a new PC." dorks. :)

Here's mine and I'm a happy camper.
I changed from AT&T a couple of years ago (DSL)
and all they could provide was about 650 download.

That's plenty fast enough to post PL responses!

We just bought a faster connection yesterday, and it just got applied so I can enjoy the speed :) Oooh and by the way... This actually cost 5$ less than my previous connection (it's the same ISP) - we just called them and told them we're leaving and they cut the price to half!

You know the freaky thing about that website? It keeps a record of all the tests you have ever run - even if you delete temporary files, cookies etc...

Here is my all time fastest result, just because:

I wonder why high-speed internet connections are so expensive in Australia - is it because it's separated from other continents?

I wonder why high-speed internet connections are so expensive in Australia - is it because it's separated from other continents?

The reason is that the primary backbone has been owned by one telco which was once government owned, but in recent years has been fully privatised. All other companies wishing to use that infrastructure has had to pay that particular telco for the use of such. There has been numerous court battles in regards to pricing, dslam restrictions etc. between said telco, government and various isp providers.

You can find alot of info about this and general aussie broadband news here.
