Re: Question on Cablecom: real highspeed "2000"?

This is the most accurate speed test for cablecom as it has no intermediat peers:

Sadly, these tests are at best a minor indication. There are too many factors involved to get accurate results.

This is what I get from 100Mb/8Mb




Even better....



Using your suggested server I averaged around 60Mb/s up and 6.8 down...



Thanks for the link, it's burst my bubble a bit, but has perhaps provided more real world values. All these sites are known to ISP's and they can both cache and manipulate traffic to distort results in their favour. I would not be surprised if they have a connection to the ones that present themselves in the most favourable light.
