    Needle would fly off the chart if the remote server could maintain the data stream.

    55/5 for me on that site. How do you manage to get 191.99 Mbps downstream?

    i have no idea how i am getting these speeds from this site but i showed the Shaw tech guy this morning he was flabbergasted by them but on other speed sites i get anywhere from 7Mb/s to 20Mb/s, there is something wrong with my internet and they can't seem to figure it out downloading other stuff off the net i get about a 1MB/s hope they can get this **** fixed

    If you are on Shaw there's no way you could get 191.99 Mb/s from anywhere. That's really strange.

    okay well after 4 weeks and many techs we have figured out what was stalling my downloads it was Kaspersky internet that was slowing it down and apparently they can do anything in regards to it so what are you guys using for security?

    I got it online, but I am assuming it's available in stores also. Although local stores might stock only certain companies rather than a collection of companies.

    12.5 MEGABYTES!

    Tried out Giganews silly Accelerator program (lastest version v1.0.111.1) saying it could do 10x the download speeds!

    This was only for COMPRESSED HEADER DOWNLOADS!!! So after I had a good reason to download ALL 1.5 BILLION Headers from alt.binaries.hdtv .... I took it for a test spin! It takes a while to get up to that speed but after tweaking it a few times I maxed out at 12.5 MEGABYTES all on regular Shaw Extreme package!!

    Here's the reason WHY I downloaded the BILLION PLUS headers instead of just using regular old .nzb search engines.

    Home computer has Shaw Extreme. Away computer has 3G 100kbs internet or Satellite speeds. If I download all the headers, it takes about 10-12 hours depending on time of day and other factors. I just set it up before I go to bed.

    When finished, I go into my usenet client software "cache folder" and Zip/Rar the now very large GB's cache file called "alt.binaries.hdtv.cache"

    When done compressing the file, it cranks out a much more manageable file size of less than 100megs because there is NO audio or Video!! Like 100 to 1 compression!!

    I then either Upload the extremely compressed Zipped/Rared cache file via email or upload site, or save it to a common USB Flash Drive!

    Next time I'm at Away Computer with slow internet speed, I download the 100meg Zipped/Rared file. I extract the file to the same usenet client software program, same cache folder, and I have the same Billion plus headers without waiting for years on 100kbs 3G/ satellite! I can take my time and comb the articles individually for as long as I wish! You can do this with other people's Saved Games, large books, or any other large extremely compressible files!! Just remember the location of the data your looking for matches the exact version of the program your using!

    I picked up the new broad band 50 modem today and cannot get higher than 18Mbps signed up to chat with a shaw rep and after an hour he finally came on line. He then proceeded to reboot my modem and cut himself off from me, now I have to sit in the chat que again untill someone comes online again.

    With the upgrade what will we actually notice in the "real world of things"? Currently, I download a song in 15 sec , would downloading one in 5 seconds make a difference, I click on a web page and its up in 1/2 second will I notice if it takes 1 millisecond .My online games like Call of duty play at 0% lag will I notice -20% lag?

    Its like playing a game @ 70 fps vs 120, sure 120 is faster but you do not notice the difference while actually playing?

    Might be great for people who download supper larg files and are in a hurry, put how often does that happen?

    I will take the upgrade if its free but would not pay extra for it.

    As you point out, it depends on what you use your internet connection for.
    For me it's well worth it, since I have multiple devices in my house who all access the internet, and I often have to download data that is very large >30 Gb.
    And trust me, being able to download 30 Gb over a 100 Mbps connection instead of a 15 Mbps connection is a day and night difference.
