A little

My home access wasn't much faster. Its pathetic

Work is much better

Isn't the idea to do this from home? Having a fast work connection is sort of assumed, isn't it?

Why don't you ask the OP, who's first post was through a box at work?

If I was going to "showoff" as Kris titled the thread, I would choose the best option I had

Oh, and we all know the saying about assumptions

True... true...

I'm not posting my work results (at least not with the graphic they provide). Although, today, I'm VPNing in, so my speed is impacted by my home speed AND my work speed. I tried it and the results were ~2.5 Mbps down (while streaming XM radio).

LOL. I'm not arguing, dammit. ;P

Although I think in the original post, Kris was trying to make it look like he was the ubergeek with a 33 Mbps home connection.

I honestly hope everyone has a decently fast work connection. Although 33 Mbps is still damn fast regardless.

Can anybody explain why there is so much variance in my upload speed?
I have the same IPO, but different speeds. At work, 1.5M and I am hooked up to a network.
At home 5m and no network.
Thanks

Retested this morning. This is also from my directly connected system rather than my wifi laptop.



Love that download speed.
