I have been hating on +Time Warner Cable
pretty hard of late and I figured before I started getting on them about their internet service I needed hard data on the matter. To that end I have been using the very helpful SpeedTest.net. Early results are that I may need to remove some pins from my +Time Warner Cable
voodoo doll (though it's still early). During my tests some of the servers go crazy and the speed drops into the single digits, as shown in the image. What's sad and pathetic about this though is that bit of text under the ping. It says: "Faster than 53% of U.S.". Really? 2.52Mb/sec download and 4.64Mb/sec up is faster than 53% of the connections in the U.S.? If that's true then no wonder I can get +Time Warner Cable
to offer a 100Mb down/10Mb up connections.
