    Internet Line Quality

    For those of you who are curious and don't know, you can test both your internet connection speed and line quality.

    Speedtest is here: http://www.speedtest.net/

    And Pingtest here: http://www.pingtest.net/






    Yeah, comcast is awesome.

    I pinged Sea, Wa. It's better if I ping Anchorage obviously but no one hosts games. I usually connect to Sea or SF for gaming hosts.

    On this side or the other, we will meet once again.

    you could start your own small business and get a business line put in at your house. I will start my own small web farm, and hope to make enough net profit to cover the business line.

    It would be cheaper to rent a rack somewhere. HVAC, and Electrical is where the biggest $$ are.

    I've thought about it, but I just don't have the time or will power to do it solo. Now if I had a couple partners.. that would be different. HELL, I might even open my own data center. But in that case, you'd need some financial backing to get started.

    Here is my speed from home. I have the 12mb package, so this is almost spot on.




    I have really enjoyed my uVerse. I've had it for almost a year, and I have to admit, the service is top notch. I always had problems with Comcrap. where my service was craptastic!

    Here are a couple of my posts pertaining to uverse, and the experience I had with installation, service and features. There are several nested posts within these links, so you can follow the threads from these 2.

    yeah when we moved to oxford i looked all around and miss matched packages but ended up with dish network for tv and then pay comcast for broadband....best for the bang for the buck ..and since ive been a loyal sprint customer for over 12 years i dont want to change my cells..so ATT was low on the list from the start!

    I kinda do the same thing, except I run DirecTV and Comcast internet. I used to be a loyal sprint customer, but their reception sucks outside of the standard zones, so we switched to Verizon. Haven't had problems since.
