Super Speedy Internet

Sometime in the last hour, my Comcast cable connection seems to have received a speed boost. Here are the results from Speakeasy’s speed test using the San Francisco, CA server (I am also in San Francisco)

Now, I am not sure what types of download speeds I was getting before, but I am pretty sure they were no where close to 15Mbit/sec. My best guess is that last time I tested my connection speed it was in the 4Mbit/sec range. Not sure if this is part of something that was announced, if it is Comcast’s Holiday gift to us, or if it just a temporary glitch in the matrix, but I guess I should enjoy it while I can. And yes, the upload speeds are still slow….maybe those will get bumped next.

  1. Looks like a ϗ-mas/חנוכה gift (« just testing to see how WP.com handles Greek and Hebrew 😉 ). I just busted a 13913Mbps test. My upload is the same… hovering around 350kbps. And IIRC, it was 5Mbps downstream before (on a good day).

  2. This was also announced today:

    “The merger creates a behemoth that will have a market capitalization of more than $220 billion — more than twice that of nearest rival Verizon Communications Inc. — and will serve 67.5 million local-phone customers in 22 states, as well as 11.5 million broadband users.

    Having completed the deal, AT&T plans to roll out its Internet video service aggressively in former BellSouth territory, the southeastern U.S., reaching 1.5 million homes by the end of next year. So far, AT&T has launched the service in 11 markets, including Houston and Indianapolis. It plans to reach 19 million homes in its own 13-state region, mainly in the central and southwestern U.S., by the end of 2008.”

    This is all very good for us! We’ll only get stronger. Faster! BETTER!
