A speed wave is a gamification of speedtest.net where a bunch of people test their speeds and it compares them and you get "badges" for being fastest or having the biggest improvement, etc. Let's all try out the DC Speed wave I created!

http://www.speedtest.net/wave/645a30064de33271

I didnt register first, but then clicked login beside my result and registered via that - it updated my result with my login name thumbs up

I'm pretty happy with mine. It's not the fastest connection available, but considering I'm paying for 5 Mb down and 0.5 up, I'm happy to getting more than I'm paying for. Thmbsup



I need to stop retesting my speeds though. I keep bringing the average down...  embarassed

A funny observation...

The red flag badge there is for the first person from a country to do the test. Note how many there are!

I kind of don't think it's fair or useful to have results *from other servers* posted. Aren't we talking about home Internet speeds here? Or am I confused about some of the tests in the results list now? Stephen, for example, has 5 tests, it says Virgin Media as ISP, but shows "upload speed more than doubles download speed" as a badge with much different results from those shown. I guess it shows the best overall result? But again that result is from a server I think, not a personal net connection. tongue

If you hover over the badge it will (generally) show you the stats that gave that badge.

You can re-test as many times as you'd like, and it will display your best test on the lineup.

That's in Austria, ISP Blizznet / Wien Energie. I pay for 30 Mb down/up EUR 30,- (USD 42) a month. No limits. I am in heaven. smiley

Using two connections I usually get my 30 Mb upload.

Yeah, I saw the info about the badge which is part of what tipped me off to Stephen's odd results (one of his badges shows dramatically different upload/download results). I did realize that his comment wasn't about using a server, just about the DC SpeedWave. But I'm still confused as to why his results vary so dramatically, and I'm guessing that the results are tied to the account you're logged-in to, not the or computer or even location. Hence my original theory that one could e.g. log in to a remote server at a large data center and run the speed test while logged-in and get some insane server-to-server results just skewing everything, heh. Of course maybe this is all just sour grapes since I lost 1st place. Wink

wr975: Awesome! I really wish we had more high-speed symmetric options in the US.

That's really nice!  I'm currently paying $43/mo for my 5 Mb down and 0.5 Mb up, and I get throttled if I go over limits (though the limits are reasonable enough that I've only gone over them once AFAIK).

Yeah, well, my home speed is about half your speed I would bet (can't test it, my home machine is down with a dead HD - waiting for the new one so I can rebuild it and try.  Probably died from the same thing that killed the internet that day).  I think my best scores then were somewhere around Deo's score or maybe a little lower.  undecided
