So are you on Cable (InHome) or PDQ (HomePlan)? Guessing it's Cable, but I'm asking...

This month-long survey is going to end in less than 2 weeks... so if you want to change these speed results, post them in soon.

It is for one month... otherwise it will take up too much time tracking and processing and I'm not going to do that! Laughing

Im just downloading a 500MB update from the "software update" menu and it says 30-50 mins to download!!! it's downloading at about 100-300KB/s my max is 600KB/s you would think apple would have plenty of bandwidth so im not to sure if what orcon done last night did anything with my connection or not.

After I have finished downloading the updates I will post my result of downloading firefox from your host.

Ok, done the test now.

If this is what Orcon calls "Max speed" well then it sucks :( it isn't as fast as it used to be (6 weeks ago) I don't really see any difference between today and yesterday to tell you the truth.

When I download something the speed jumps all over the place, from 50KB/s to 200, 150, 20, 300 and so on, it doesn't settle on a speed.

Nice of you to try Orcon but it needs more work.
