17 Bytes, not bits. I have two ISPs, Comcast & Verizon. I needed the
18 redundancy as Comcast for a long time was very unreliable. It's been
19 better in the last year. That said Comcast speeds vary a lot based on
20 what I suppose my neighbors are doing as cable modem is a shared
21 interface. The Verizon 3Mbps service speeds are pretty constant.
23 Measured this morning using Speakeasy's page with San Francisco as the
24 other end:
28 Comcast cable modem - 22.38Mbps download, 4.27Mbps upload
29 Verizon DSL - 2.89Mbps download, 0.74Mbps upload
31 In my home I'm 54Mbps wireless to the Comcast router which might
32 effect things a bit but directly connected to the DSL router. If one
33 goes down I just change a couple of Ethernet cables and start using
34 the other. I suspect that if I went to my wife's machine right now I'd
35 get close to 40Mbps.
37 In reality I find that _real_ transfers to other Gentoo computers
38 using rsync typically run around 50% of those numbers averaged over
39 time.
41 Point taken about s/S. I didn't know there was an accepted standard to use 's'.
43 Cheers,
