SpeedTest during NCAA March Madness

Post by Illuminati » Fri Mar 19, 2010 1:08 pm

So last night I was in class and the internet was damn slow. We figured it was the dorm students using all the bandwidth by streaming the NCAA March Madness basketball games... We ran speed test for fun and sure enough, we had dialup speed download. What we didn't expect was the upload to be as high as it was! Here is a priceless screenshot you don't see very often!

What do you think? When will a solution be found? Google Fiber? Internet2?

:shock: that certainly is unique!i can't even stream 360p clearly on my connection, i have to wait for it to buffer a few minutes, and any higher res than that it can take a half hour to buffer far enough to watch without pausing later

Just go to Japan or Korea. Their Internet speeds are godly.

I wish us Canadians don't have to pay so much for such mediocre Internet. Rogers Internet. Thank God for 30% off of our one year contract for the Express package. But even then, still expensive...
