    Internet Speed

    What are your Download and Upload Speeds? I just switched from the middle Verizon DSL package, which at the best of times downloaded at 1 mbps, to a Cable modem on Thursday. I ran a Ping test at http://www.speedtest.net/ and I'm now Downloading at 20.43 mbps and uploading at 2.08 mbps. What type of internet do you have and how fast is your D/L and U/L speeds?

    Anyone with comcast "SpeedBoost" should be calling BS on those numbers. Their routinely known to cheat simply by the fact that the first 10-20 seconds of any download gets super high speeds. Best way to actually find out your download speed is download a relatively large file and see the graph of the actual speed over time. Also trying stopping and starting it a few times, just to see if there are spikes when you first start.
