I got this...

"Sorry! your IP address 24.69.255.236, has now requested 16 applet loads, which is over the limit for today.
(If you are sharing this IP address with others (a web proxy server), and got this message immediately, please get a dslreports account and login so we identify you and avoid locking you out unfairly).

Due to overwhelming popularity of the test server, we have had to institute a temporary IP based cap to ease pressure on our partner test sites."

This is with a 12mbs adsl connection, if I had known about this site two months ago, I could have tested my old 1.5mbs adsl line. I'll send the link to my friend who has a fiber optic line.

Cool link, Jeff! I got:

Your download speed : 1094744 bps, or 1094 kbps.
A 133.6 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 681895 bps, or 681 kbps.
Seems like broadband .. above the 1mbit barrier!

Looks like most you guys have me beat on download speeds..but with uploading speed looks like I'm the uncontested upload dude.

I was reading somewhere on that site that overseas connections may show slower speeds because of the distances and their test servers. You and Rik are probably actually faster.

Unfortunately I have yet to find any servers that can push data to me fast enough to even use more than about 200-300k so I guess it isn't too bad of a connection. I used to have a 6mb line but that was severe overkill.
