Sympatico pretty fast...

So I've had sympatico hse for about a month at home now (Rogers isn't an option, due to the fact that I live in butfuck and there's no cable here).

I'm pretty impressed with the service so far. It's never been down, and has been pretty fast overall.

I'm getting speeds of 235.2 Kbps today. Is that pretty standard compared ot other sympatico users?

Doesnt sound realistic... sympatico users are capped at ~100kbps

Wait...are you talking about kilobytes or kilobits per second?

No they aren't. I have mine over 100kbps all the time.

I've Sympatico HSE for 4 years and it has NEVER been down. NEVER.

Along with a couple trout, I think I must have a horseshoe in my hoo-ha.

I'll admit, it isn't always that fast, but it averages 180 on most downloads, web pages even faster.

It was 236.2 Kbps (bytes).

Hmmm...that's close to 2mbps, but the modems do not synch above 1mbps. Strange.

I should hope you're getting over 100kbps when analog modems are at 53kbps. :D

I don't understand it either, the FAQ says that you can expect speeds of up to 120 kbps depending on traffic. BUT having said that, I downloaded some shit today and I noticed it hit 230+ on average (after double clicking on the connection icon to display transmission and receipt speeds). How could that be then?

You could try looking at your computer and not your hydro meter.

Well, your electric powered anal probe wasn't plugged in, so even my hydro meter wouldn't turn around that fast.
:p

What ELSE could it be?

Ah, it's entirely possible access manager is miscalculating then. Here's the site to test the real transfer speed - it's right on the Bell backbone so distance isn't a factor.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Sympatico pretty fast...

Thanks!

But this is what I got...

"Test starting...
Average throughput: 816 kilobits/sec
Total Time: 10275 milliseconds
Done."

How the fuck is that possible?

my cable results from the same page...hehe

Test starting...
Average throughput: 1649 kilobits/sec
Total Time: 10172 milliseconds
Done.

Wow, that's very good. I use HSE, and this is what I get.

Test starting...
Average throughput: 322 kilobits/sec
Total Time: 25980 milliseconds
Done.

OK this is fucking retarded.

Just tried again:

"Test starting...
Average throughput: 6978 kilobits/sec
Total Time: 1202 milliseconds
Done."

And again;

"Test starting...
Average throughput: 7157 kilobits/sec
Total Time: 1172 milliseconds
Done."

WTF?

The DSL modems are capped to 1mbps, and depending on your distance from the CO, your rates will vary. I'm lucky to about a 3 minute walk from the CO, so I'm getting 1100kbps.

But :eek: :eek: :eek: at Deus' results.

Ok, I'm thinking there's something wrong with the site now. LOL! Lemme go try it.

Edit: the test file could be cached on your machine after the first test.

10275 milisex = 10 sex
816 kilobits/sec = 102 kilobytes/sec

You tried to download one megabyte. Took you 10 sex.
How is what possible?
