The FCC now has a website that will test your computer's internet connection speeds. Click here for the site.

My crappy AT&T DSL connection:

download - 686 kbps
upload - 304 kbps
latency - 113 ms
jitter - 110 ms

It's good enough (barely) for forum postings...

I did try to upgrade once last year. It somehow failed and AT&T sent a guy out to fix it. He got into a 5-way conference call that ended up in a shouting match with his colleagues!!! He was never able to fix the thing. So it's still 700kbps -- on a good day.

broadband test

Charter always gets a bad rap in my area but my connection is amazing. Their customer service still really sucks though. Well and I'm first on the switch in my "neighborhood"

And to think... it wasn't that long ago when we had only 110 baud leased line modems. Once user got upgraded to a 300 baud leased line modem, and he thought that he had died and gone to heaven.
