    Internet speed chart

    These charts may help you to see where we are with our equipment.

    The 3rd link is similar to the 1st link, but has a yellow wall paper, neat.

    Common home installation is by modem or cable DSL. DSL is always online and much faster. Most offices adopt a much higher speed connecting media is used.

    With a modem system, you can upgrade downloading speed using an accelerator.

    Portager..... bear in mind that, although wireless is supposedly good for up to 150-200', this is optimal for a situation such as a gymnasium or open field. Walls, ductwork, refrigerators, cordless phones and general electronic clutter GREATLY deminish the signal strength. In the average home you're lucky to get 75 feet from a typical do-it-yourself wireless router. *I install wireless cable routers and cable modems for the local cable company by the way*

    Trouty..... Go get 'em! If it's on your property, you own it!

    I usually get around 100-120Mpbs down load and around 70-80Mpbs upload; we have opted for the 'slower' connection. Actual rated is 200MPbs, but rarely get this.

    Here is today's result somewhat different as the web is a bit irratic today so my speeds are up and down:-

    Download just 93Mbps
    and upload very slow at 20Mpbs

    We share the Astra-3 satellite with 50.000 users in Europe.
    Download speed is 2 Mb/sec, upload is 256Kb/sec. These are targets, not actual values.
    Full speed is only achieved when most of the other users are sleeping.
    We started with the "fair use policy" where speed is reduced if you use substantially more than the average user. Instead we have a data limit of 2 Gb, after which the internet is lost until the 13th of the next month.

    I guess I must be pretty slow because when I tried to connect the the middle link my connection timed out.

    that has to do with the server and the routing you are going through to get to it.
