Internet connection type

After looking at Springsteen’s thread on connection speed, I was interested to find out what members are using to connect to the internet with at home.

I have low-end DSL with upload speeds only around 1300 kb/s

I have done that test, and it is apparently very, very slow, yet my computer and download speed is actually faster than I thought it would be.

What are the numbers you got from the test?

Very very low numbers. I posted them on another forum and they all laughed and said how slow my internet was but I told them it wasn’t slow at all! It’s not fast, but it’s not slow. It’s a perfect speed, really.

See how low those numbers are? I think they have to be wrong.

do you have dial up?

I don’t have dial up, no. The net for me is always on when I turn the computer on.
