What's your internet Speed?

Q: What's your internet Speed?

Hey guys. I am doing a project that compares the relationship between population and internet speed. I was really hoping that you guys would help me out and provide some data for me. Please leave comments with the following information
What's your up/down speed? ( results preferred)
What's your local area population?
What's the population of the nearest city?
Any replies would be great, thanks all.

Preferred Solution: What's your internet Speed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Only had this new pc a few weeks and it is so slow now after 3 blue screen of death crashes that caused this I think, I believe firefox caused. I am not sure how to read dump files to show you details of the BSOD. I am including details of my PC along with the hijack this log, my system is clean though according to antispyware and virus scans.


I installed 64bit before this 32bit one on another partition of this HDD but cannot boot into it anymore at startup because this PC won't let me select it because it does not detect my keyboard in DOS mode for some weird reason.

A:Snail Speed Pc At Times And Always Slow Internet Speed On Vista Ultimate

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems.,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux. I hope this thread can stay on this forum somewhere to help others follow the link I posted above for possible solutions to this problem, it will save them time and effort trying numerous things.

My computer was running just fine til about a week ago. I am on a secure network that was before yielding 1/mb/sec download speeds on wireless router. I have tested the network on my laptop and it still runs just fine, however my desktop has become sluggish, the download speeds are down to 30kb/sec and the search function has been taken over by "" that Malware Bytes has failed to find. Today the internet would simply die and not reconnect, or my browser would redirect to dead sites. The CPU on any processes doesn't seem high, but my computer is screaming like it's running several programs at once. I am using Vista, all updates installed that are available and needed.

What would I do to figure out the sort of malware I suspect this to be?

Hi; I have a Dynalink router and on plan which I get really nice speeds for me (downloads a few megabytes a second), using Windows XP via ethernet.
However as soon as a laptop is also plugged in also via ethernet and streams videos, the internet on my Windows XP computer is so slow, web pages can barely open.
Is there anyone to somehow make both of them at least able to both use the internet? What's the problem? Thanks in advance for any help

So sometime ago around about the start of November my internet speed dropped out of nowhere and has remained at the constantly lowered speed since then Usually I would have a download speed of mbps however in recent days that s more like mbps When trying a bandwidth test that would usually have been about mbps however that is more like mbps now A way I used to scope what my bandwidth was was using the Formula com website where when you watch a video on it it will tell you your bandwidth rating before hand That as I say has dropped from the mbps to the mbps mentioned This is normally an and Speed Speed Drop Bandwidth Internet Sudden okay speed to do things however whilst my father is using Netflix the internet becomes so slow that it is basically impossible to do anything Normally on my old internet speed it would have not been a problem Now I ve done all the tests that are normally mentioned to Internet Speed and Bandwidth Speed Sudden Drop do as I have been searching for an answer since the Internet Speed and Bandwidth Speed Sudden Drop internet speed tanked It is not a computer specific problem as it is exactly the same on all devices connected to the router I have rung my ISP and they have said that my line should be receiving around mbps as we run on an ADSL connection However doing a line test through the same provider says we should be getting mbps My ISP reports no problems with the line and there has been no change at my end either When the internet suddenly dropped as I say it was a sudden speed decrease it didn t happen over a period of time it literally happened in an instant I was on a BT HomeHub This hub would continuously be disconnecting due to a fault however the internet speed was always at the mbps Bandwidth However around about the th- th of November as I say the internet just dropped but we were still having troubles with the disconnections A BT HomeHub was then upgraded to which has since stopped the disconnections but the speed has remained exactly the same Any advice would be appreciated on this and I thank you for any time that you put into this issue I just hope that it s something that can be resolved I just want to know what has caused it it s one of those things that just shouldn t happen but has and it is mighty frustrating Again thanks Phil nbsp

hi! i just wanna ask between the difference of the download speed and the internet speed. because i have a 1.5mb connection i tried at speedtest and when i download i always get a 190-200kbps rate. so its not actually 1.5mb in my download speed even my internet speed is 1.5mbps. is there and calculator what should be my connection if i want my download speed like 1mb per second? thank you very much.

A:difference between the download speed and internet speed?

Are you sure you're not getting 190-200KBps? You have to watch because the speed is often stated using different bit rates. When you see 1.5Mbs (lower case b) then it is megabits per second. If you see 190KBs (upper case B) then it's talking kilobytes per second. There are 8 bits in a byte so you really need to multiply the KBs number by 8 to determine the megabits or divide the Mbs number by 8 to determine the megabyte number.

In your case 200KBs multiplied by 8 is 1600Kbs or 1.6Mbs.

I've been told before that download speed is independent of how fast your Internet connection is. Is that true?

A:Download Speed v. Internet Connection Speed

Short answer = no. But on the other hand yes. Depends on how you mean the question.

Internet connection speed is defined by download speed and upload speed. - The Global Broadband Speed Test

It's probably an issue of semantics, i.e. what they meant when they said "download". Your "download speed" is dependent on how fast your ISP's download speed, but also how fast the downloading server us uploading the data, be it a file or a web page, or whatever. You can't get something faster than someone is sending it to you, however you can get it slower.

Hi My internet speed is consistently are Internet Fast Broswers Internet but Slow Speed is fast - mbps but Chrome and IE sometime run slow sometimes For instance I'll be browsing Yahoo fine for a couple minutes but then I'll try to open another tab to do a Google search and the browser will stall for about a Internet Broswers are Slow but Internet Speed is Fast minute before loading that page Or I could click a link on a webpage and the browser will stall and show a blank white page for Internet Broswers are Slow but Internet Speed is Fast a minute Loading the content on a webpage usually takes close to the normal amount of time it just stalls before hand It doesn't happen every time I click something but it happens often enough to be a nuisance Last night I went under settings and did Referesh your PC which is supposed to restore defaults and delete installed apps but the problem is still here EDIT-- Here's an example Everything usually stalls at the same time but not always Just now Gmail stalled for minutes but I was still able to open a new tab and complete a Google search However when I tried opening a new tab and going to Gmail that way that tab stalled too

A:Internet Broswers are Slow but Internet Speed is Fast

I get that too sometimes, it is clearly caused by your computer (and in my case my computer) not your connection. I have ti with chrome but not IE, because i never open IE to check it. I have windos 8 so we have similar experiences in several respects. Mine haven't been as bad as yours lasting only 30 seconds or so at worst. I think this is due to large processes running in task manager and hogging memory/processor capacity. The only things i can advise is to: see if there are any large processes running under the details tab of task manager which should not be running, scan with your antivirus and with malwarebytes (there is a free version)to check that the cause isn't a virus of some sort, see if any startup items can be safely disabled (this can be done from a feature within the program CCleaner from piriform) and try clearing your temp files (CCleaner can also do this) and browsing history along with deleting any junk you have in the recycle bin and deleting old files you no longer need/uninstalling old programs you no longer need. When using CCleaner be VERY CAREFUL not to disable startup items without first verifying they are safe to stop (check google) and NEVER use it's registry tools (anything that attempts to "clean" the registry can damage your system). One other thing that might help you is disbaling add-ons in the browser and making plugins "clcik to play" rather than running automatically, doing this will mean there is less content to load so loading will be faster.

I am using an AT&T 2Wire 2701HG-B Router, and it sucks.
I can't get another one so that's outa the question.
What can I do to speed up my internet connection?
As of now it's:

Crappy, I know. Any help or advice is appreciated.

A:How do I speed up my internet speed?

I, too have AT&T as my High Speed Internet provider, but through UVerse. I do agree that the routers they've been using have been falling on the crappy side. Some may have a different opinion/experience.

Anyway, ever since I've put my main tinkering-do-it-all computer in the DMZ, I've noticed a significant speed increase.

There are gotchas, though:

1. Once the computer is in the DMZ, it won't communicate with the rest of your home computers. It is USB SneakerNet time when moving/sharing files.
2. If you have important files, can't leave your computer running all the time. If you have to, then make sure the Windows firewall is on and your computer is armed to the teeth against viruses and spyware.

I do not recommend this setting for everyone. It's just that I noticed a big difference with downloads and overall internet experience. Also noticed a big time improvement in gaming.

Your mileage may vary and you may want to find out more about DMZ before trying it out.

I have a problem with slow internet speed. If I play a video clip on youtube for example, the video will play for a few seconds, then it will freeze for a few seconds, then play again for a few seconds then freeze again for a few seconds etc etc

This happens with almost every video i try to play. It happens with whichever website i goto to play a video clip.

I'm currently using internet explorer as my browser.

I recently went to the library to play the same video clips there, and the video clips were playing continously without freezing.

I think my download speed is 8mb, which should be fine i think

... downloading a file of any size 25Mb-1Gig ...Click to expand...

Most times file sizes are quoted in Bytes (each Byte is 8 bits) instead of bits. So, my first suspicion is that you are confusing the two. If you miscalculated and you are downloading a large file at 8 * 1.71 Mbps = 13.68 Mbps then you are probably hitting a limit of how fast the server is working on your behalf.

Hi! I've been reading here for awhile and have posted a few times in other folders under a differfent name (lost the id info due to computer changes) I have a question that is more curiosity than anything else. 
A couple of friends and I have been discussing how having more than one computer on a single cable connection effects upload and download speed.  Friend A claims that having 2 or 3 computers on one connection slows down everyone while friend B claims the speed the cable company claims you should get is good for each individual computer. My stance is "I dunno but I could probably find out" so I am the researcher who is the designated tie breaker.  What say you all?

A:Internet speed

Normally the router will treat requests on a first come first serve. So if for example user A starts running a torrent client and using the full width of your connection it will leave very little room for users B and C, even to access their emails. But if all users are just browsing the web everyone will get a slice of the pie (bandwidth), until the pie is all used up and then you go back to a first come first serve basis. There is a function on many routers called QoS (quality of service) where you can give bandwidth priority to specific applications or ports, or whatever, and also prioritize certain machines over others.
Edit: so to clarify, your cable company has no say. It is all down to your local network and your configuration.

Hey Cossie,

The time your browser takes to load up (open up for the first time) isn't directly related to the speed of your internet (at least as far as I know). Have a look at your processor usage to determine if something if consuming all the CPU and if that is the case, post back with the name of the process.

If that is not the case, try a different browser to see if the problem persists. If it does that more then likely the cause it a virus. We'll get to that later.

Late last year I upgraded my internet to fibre optic with speed up to 38mbps.
The provider is EE which I have been with them for a long time and before EE it was orange.
My question is since the new fibre was connected last November the speed was 37/36mbps,But since the beginning of this month have noticed that the speed is now 34/32mbps.
Okay it does say in the contract UP TO 38,But would there be any other reason for this change in the speed figures,I only live about half a mile from the BT exchange.
Would any one have any thoughts on this Please.
Many Thanks.

A:my internet speed changes

Unless you did something to your computer that changed your internet connection settings, this problem might be with your service provider. You could try using a system restore point that goes back to a date/time prior to when this problem first started.

System Restore

If a system restore doesn't help you can undo it if you want to.

System Restore - Undo - Vista Forums (same tutorial works with Windows 7)

Personally, I would contact customer support for your internet service provider. They should have the tools to run diagnostic checks on your computer and their own service.

My question is since the new fibre was connected last November the speed was 37/36mbps,But since the beginning of this month have noticed that the speed is now 34/32mbps.
Okay it does say in the contract UP TO 38,But would there be any other reason for this change in the speed figures,I only live about half a mile from the BT exchange.

Will anybody help how to increase the internet speed and Download Speed (BSNL INDIA).
Please fell free to help me out.


A:Internet Speed

Internet Speed is dependent on many factors. They are as follows.

01. What is the band-width that you are paying for and getting from your ISP (BSNL). This is the most important parameter. The band-width is normally stated in kilobits or megabits per second. Your maximum download speed would be one eighth of your band-width in kilobytes per second. Thus if your band-width is 2 mbps you would get a maximum download speed of 256 kilobytes per second.

02. The above is the ideal speed that you would attain. However there are transmission and hysteresis losses on the way, and you should feel satisfied if you get 80% to 90% of the ideal speed. If you get less than 80% then you should complain to your ISP telephonically and they would reset your profile in their records which shall improve the speed.

03. There is an excellent free software (donationware) named NetSpeed Monitor ( that you might like to download and install. It keeps track of your Internet transaction and speed. This gives you an idea about how your band-width is being utilized.

04. Finally there are download managers that automatically catch anything that you want to download and download for you. Most of them use multiple strands to download files which they claim speeds up the download process if it is not already running near the ideal speed. I don't recommend there use with a broadband connection. But if you are very keen then you may try Free Download Manager ( One of the best download managers is Download Accelerator Plus Premium (current version but it is not free.

Trust all this is of help to you.

im a console gamer and recently got broadband. The speed is 1500kbps, although it doesnt appear to be running even close to this. The pc says its running at 100 mbps. That doesnt appear to be correct. the Xbox 360 is pretty laggy, I havent tried the wii or ps3 yet. is it possible that the sprred is capped and i can make it faster?. And why is it saying 10mbps. If you have any sugestions It would really help me out. I cant be bothered fiddling with it anymore if it cannot even handle console gaming, although adam internet (isp) said that the speed we have would be ideal, but Im at a loss really because it is pretty average.

Hi. I have 4MB/s of internet speed. I wanna share with 8 users and I wanna know whether these users will be using the same internet speed i.e: 4MB/s for each user at the same time. Is it possible to make such connection like this? Is there anyway to distribute the same internet speed at the same time? Thanks!

A:[WTA] Can I have the same internet speed?

All users will be sharing the 4 MB/s bandwidth. If 2 users are downloading at the same time your effective bandwidth will be 2 MB/s, less if more users are downloading. It is impossible for multiple users to share a 4 MB/s connection with each user getting 4 MB/s. But with typical usage multiple users will not actually be active at any given moment. If there is only one active user he will get the full bandwidth.

The speed of your connection is determined but the speed that you're paying for from your ISP and the speed of the connection from a server/site to your system. Changing PC's won't change the speed you get but if the slowness is caused by a faulty network adapter you may see an improvement.

Hey guys

I've noticed this in the past, but I have never asked anyone about it before. I have Bell Sympatico DSL Highspeed. When I am downloading something, the speed starts off very high and then begins to decrease. For example, I just downloaded Open Office, and I noticed the download speed at a crazy-high 1000+kbps. As usual, it started to go down rapidly, dropping over 50kbps every second. Eventually, it settles around 170kbps. So, why can't stay at the high speeds it stars off at?
And what is the average speed that you guy get from your internet?

A:Internet Speed

Hi StEvE21

I don't know the answer, but my theory is that as soon as you click on download it starts loading into a buffer. When you've spent time deciding where to download to, then the buffer empties quickly then you're back to a normal speed.

I have 8MB shared connection from ISP
so when I run speed test check from one of my PC it returns around 1.76 Mb download and 0.07 Mb Upload Speed
my question is, if I connect one of the PC directly to modem and run the test again so will I get 8MB of speed?

A:Internet Speed

I have little idea what you are talking about. Internet speed or bandwidth is measured in Mega-bits per second (Mbps) or kilo-bits per second (kbps). Total downloads or monthly download limits are usually given in Giga-Bytes (GB) or Mega-Bytes (MB). So if you have 8MB that is a pitifully low monthly limit--I've used 1/2 that this morning on email, news and some threads on this site.

If you are interested in the speed you are now getting try something like with a connection to the router. If that seems lower than what you think you are paying for then try with a computer connected directly to the modem.

A:Internet speed up

Depends on where the bottleneck is. What speed are you supposed to be getting and what are you experiencing?

Describe your network, including brand and model of modem and any routers, switches, etc.

there r so many ways people say to speed up ur internet!!!!But wot is the best thing to do to check wot my speeds is and am igetting the best i can get??

A:Internet speed

whats you contract with your ISP for speed ?

then use and test speed ...

the ask your ISP what speed you can expect depending on distance from the local exchange

for example on a 8mb service getting 5-6mb would be typical
based on my experiance in UK

would anyone know when I had my internet installed instead off putting a line from the lamppost straight to my house like everyone in my street they ran a line from my next door neighbours to mine so now there are two internet running from one line from the lamppost would that make my internet speed run slower than everyone in the street that have their own line thanks in advance

A:internet speed

what country are you in
If in UK
Most houses have 2 lines from the pole to the house
so you do have a separate line to your house and should make little difference
is this a semi-detached , Terraced or detached property

Hey guys,

Where can I check what my current internet speed (mbps) is? I know my bill comes with the speed (1.5-3 mbps) but when I look into my "Local Area Connection" it says speed: 100 mbps. And when I connect my phone and check the speed with a few apps it all comes back as 54 Mbps. So what is my speed? I'm guessing one is upload speed and one is download speed? But how come everything shows differently?

maybe my upload is 1.5 and download is 100Mbps and my phone caps at 54 Mbps??? I dont know...input please?

Thx guys!!!

A:Internet speed?

I highly recommend

The LAN showing 100MBps is referring to the "network" connection between your computer and your router. 54MBps is usually typical for Wireless G speeds, which are slower than the cable connections. will tell you your real internet connection speeds, both downloading and uploading.

I have a dlink xtreme desktop adapter for my computer and a 54MB/s router. My internet download speed is 2MB/s. is there a way to make this faster?

Hi all.

in XP if you hovered the mouse over the internet icon down by the clock it gave you an idea of the speed, is there anything like it in windows 7.


A:internet speed ??

actually in xp when u hover over the icon thats not your internet speed. thats the speed capable of the adapter in your pc. if u want to know ur actual internet speed use - The Global Broadband Speed Test and choose the location nearest to you.

Ever since I went from Vista to Windows 7 it seems my internet has slowed down. I am running a MSI, and AMD possessor fairly new less then 1yr. Is this a known issue? To be exact I use Grabit to download newsgroups and it took half the time to download a article with Vista than it does with Win 7

Hi I didn't know where to post this
my internet speed been groin crazy
its goes fine then at some point all the speed drop the lights flickers
only in wifi tho
I called my ISP they said it the signals from the wireless phone
called my friend he says its signals from other routers * I live in a building around 16 ap 4 per floor*
both said to connect via either
a lot of my usage is by phone so I use wifi
any one have any solution for it ?

A:Internet speed

Eliminate the possibilities.

Turn off the wifi, connect to router via cable only. Is it still slowing down? If yes, it's something related to wireless. Then continue troubleshooting.

hi everybody


My internet speed seems to drop quite often, but if I turn my modem off and then back on the speed
returns to normal, can anyone tell me why.
regards calmat

A:internet speed

With out any system specs provided it's just a shot in the dark. I would guess that your wifi adapter needs to be updated.

The last week or 2 I've seen a great deal of lag anytime I play an online game on my computer. My "Network" is set-up as such: my mom's computer connects to the modem, which connects to the wireless router; my computer connects to the wireless router with a Cat5e cable. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother that use the Wireless Router to connect wirelessly.
The password for the router somehow got taken off, so I put a new 1 on it but the lag persist. I'm not too techy with computers, so any help will be greatly appreciated. I would like to find out if this is a problem with my computer or my mom's,sisters', or brother's. Or is it a problem with the actual Internet Connection/Service Provider. I'm using Vista Ultimate 64bit, an I have updated the drivers on the router. Any help/suggestions appreciated. Thank You!

Hey. I was wondering if there is something I can do to make my Internet faster or running more successful. I use a high speed Internet connection. Thanks for any advise.

A:Internet speed

You'll need to provide a bit more info for others to help you.

Are you on DSL? Who's your carrier if so?

Or are you on cable? Who's your carrier?

We need some specifics about your computer system, OS, modem type, etc.

What type of internet connection do you have and also have you checked for spyware / trojans recently? They are number one cause of internet slowness. 2nd is DoS or ping attacks.

I have the Belkin F5D7230-4 router. I also have a laptop with the Belkin 54g network card.
I have Verizon DSL service.
I am literally 10 feet away from the router and connected to it and only getting 5MBPS. If I close the browser and wait a few seconds I can get up to 54 then drops down to 24 then 18 then 5. Shouldn't it stay at a certain speed?
