Yeah, I was wondering how the hell he got that.  The 6Mbps down, 784Kbps up is the Premium service from Comcast.

Sounds like caching is still a problem for you.

Are you running any "Web Accellerators", like from Google, AOL, NetZero, etc?  All of those do weird things with stats here on this site.

4Mbps down, and 384Kbps up is normal Comcast (for the SourthEast that is).  The higher service is Premium.  If they had something faster, I'd be paying for it but they don't.

For some reason you are still getting cached tests. Comcast isn't pumping out speeds like that for home use.  Very Happy

EDIT: I think the only area that Comcast is going to keep extreme is in VA where Adelphia planned to offer 16000/2000, being that the infrastructure is setup for it already.

When you are downloading a file, what are the KB per second? 1500Kbps?

That's around the area of a 6Mbps download package. Depending on the server, you can get even closer to 700Kbps. The initial burst will sometimes be 1Mbps or higher, but after your download is at least halfway finished, your speed will have settled down to actual line speed.

I know you turned off the google accelerator, but it could have cached results of the test on the hard drive somewhere. I'm not sure as I don't use it, but if it's job is to accelerate browsing, It could have it's own temp folder for caching pages for faster loading. It may not use Windows temporary internet folder.

Go download something at Microsoft, and take a screen shot of the window.

CTRL-Print Screen will capture only that window (or is it ALT-Print Screen, I can never remember).

Then attach it to this post.
