this time, when connecting from the school.
i'd say it's not bad, but since this is already a university connection, i'll still feel bad.

gotta LOVE that upload speed ;_;

I'd be happy with my connection if my upload wasn't so sucktastic. Some of you guys have higher upload while you still have slower downloads. I'd kill to have just 1MB down, but shit...

your lag might be related to your computer, not on the connection itself.
seriously, damn you. I can only dream of speeds like these -_-

Or you might be torrenting while playing games.... but it shouldn't be a problem with your kind of speed... :? If the online game u're playing is 1 on 1, or anything that's not MMORPG, the one that's lagging might not be you, but others in the same room, or hey, maybe it's the server. :lol:

@Thexev: US speed sucks?? you should try here in Indonesia! I went to my cousin who live at NH-Dover, like 2 years ago, and i spent my time there admiring the speed of the connection there. It's the first time in my life visiting Gendou to DL some songs, and the speed of my finger clicking on mouse to download was beaten by the download speed :shock: .

According to speedtest.net... The country with the highest average speed is JAPAN. The things they could do with those connections...

Go figgure huh?

I can almost imagine an even more cliche scenery where the 'smart kids in front of the computer' are... you guessed it... Japanese.
Possibly customising their computers to have abilities like some Gundam OS...

Japan huh....? I heard from my cousin living at Aussie, that the PM is striving to make Australia the country with the fastest connection in the world... is that true. Cause i remember someone from Aussie just whine about his ISP here...

Well... always glad that nipponjin has fast internet connection... we got our Raw anime to be subbed from there after all... :lol:

Lol always thought Japan would be the fastest. What with all the game companies there. I finally managed to get 5Mbits/s. Took me a lot of messing around with my connections.

They probably mean Australia, NZ, blah blah and the countries in Asia that are near it.

Hey guys, am I doing it right? :lol:

Image

I am pretty satisfied with my ISP. However, the downloading will get much faster when we will switch a new 20Mbit ISP, our one right now sucks.
But wait, this narrows my speed down to almost 12Mbits? I wish I actually could torrent that fast.

Well, i should remind you guys, im still young and leeching off my parents (they know less about the pc, so i told them to get premier service (the 2nd highest of 3), and apparently they did o.o. Once i get kicked outta the house ill be using dial up probrally D:


uhh i think i should stop here before people (like TheXev :3 jk) might pop up under my computer desk and stab me.
