I can't get more than 3000kb from CNet's servers. They're slow.

I think it could be better, but I have a wife and daughter on wireless somewhere in the house, and the XBox 360 is on hogging bandwidth...

I'll come clean - I remote desktop'd into a box at work for those results.

I've seen as high as 50mbit down, 30mbit up from my laptop in my cube.


We've got a good amount of bandwidth . I think we also own more class C address space than anyone else.
