Uploading bar
 
It would be nice to see how much time my uploads to this site would take.

Well, once you get used to your internet speed, you kinda automatically make a mind timer. Uploading 20MB files for me takes about 45 seconds. 1MB takes about 2 Seconds. I've uploaded hundreds of files, so I am firmiliar with my Internet Speed.

My internet speed sucks so when I have to upload stuff it takes like 5 mins.

whats your speed?

[QUOTE=InsertName;45374]My internet speed sucks so when I have to upload stuff it takes like 5 mins.

whats your speed?[/QUOTE]My internet speed sucks too because I have to use a ridiculous WIFI connection to my router as its too far to easily put in an Ethernet cable. Download speed - 1.43 Mb/s , Upload speed 0.43 Mb/s , I score a national grade of F on speedtest.net . My speed has always been terrible, barely surpassing 2 Mb/s when wired up anyway.

EDIT - scrap what I said, I rebooted my router (it has been running for a good month or so), Download speed - 1.85 Mb/s , Upload speed 0.46 Mb/s , I score a national grade of D- on speedtest.net

EDIT - I thought I would do a pingtest.net one too -

EDIT again - well, speed seems to vary actually, but here is an image:

5613 / 1024 = 5.48 mb/s
418 / 1024 = 0.41 mb/s
That's megaBITS, not megaBYTES, that's the way internet speed is done.
A transfer rate of 5.48 megabytes/s would be awesome.

I conclude that my internet is worse.

legolizard 01-09-2012 06:42 PM

Oops, haha. :/ I usually just assume everything is in bytes. :/

Thanks arty. : )

*imaginary high five for sucky internets*
