As Microsoft’s academic rep for Arizona State University, I visit their campus several times each semester. In between speaking engagements and faculty visits, I hold “office hours” for students in an empty office, conference room or grad student cubical. ASU’s network is relatively open; they have Guest wireless, and I can connect directly if I plug into a hardwire port. I frequently use http://www.speedtest.net to check the bandwidth of places that offer “high speed” wireless (like a hotel). Frequently I discover that hotel high-speed Internet isn’t very high-speed: like 400KB/sec down and 250KB/sec up. In those cases I’ll use my wireless phone provider aircard and get a faster connection. At ASU things are a bit different. This morning the bandwidth is 170MB/sec down and 119MB/sec up with a 7ms ping. Can your campus top that? I find it funny that Speed Test only gives the connection a 3 1/2 star rating. How the heck do you get a five?
348 Mbps down, 110 Mbps up, as reported by speedtest.net
Ya its a good tool to check your internet speed, i normally use http://speedtest.pk for checking my broadband speed test, they have many other tools like ping , trace route n isp n ip information with them which could help u get to the cause of slow internet speed.
Hey Barry, that's amazing. But where????
were you wireless or plugged into a jack? those speeds are ridiculously fast. my home wifi runs about 22 down and 4 up. i am sure hardwiring into the modem would make a big difference.
Barry thats a hell of speed!
My adsl speed is 1,2Mbps download and just 120Kbps upload.
I used http://www.adslspeed.com
At Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, MI, I got about 100 down and 46 up. 3 1/2 stars.
nowdays every student want high internet speed for this speed test tool is a great tool
