  1. The CL Internet Speedtest Thread

    This thread is for sharing internet speed of CL members.

    Like it says, pretty simple. Share your internet speed in this thread, and in case you don't know how to, do the following:

    • Click the link that I posted in the beginning.
    • When you're directed to the page, and it's loaded. There's supposed to be a "begin test" Button in the upper center of the page. Click it.
    • Test is now underway, wait until it's done testing everything, and click on "Share this result".
    • Click on "image", and then copy the link.
    • Come back to this thread, and paste the link and share it.

    Well, I don't suppose I can make this any easier, so, let's begin the sharing:

    Grade A internet, jolly.

    If there's anything I find disappointing is the fact it was supposed to be 150 mb/s, but oh well. It ain't cable, so obviously the speed's going to be way lower.

    Prepare yourselves

    I'm pretty sure you're mixing up mbit with megabyte there. Also, lucky rich bastard living in a country where the government hasn't slept through the rise of the internet resulting in shit asynchronous connection speeds. Bugger-all in terms of upload speed.

    Yes, thank you for clarifying this for me, though at the same time, it was supposed to be way higher than that when I first talked to the guy. When we were done, I didn't actually expect it to be at 100 mb/s for download speed, but he said it'd be higher than 50 or something.

    Nevertheless, the internet is good and all, nothing to complain about but it was clear that it was supposed to be faster. And, judging by the fact in different locations where I've taken it, I'd say that it's probably because of my location indeed, alongside the fact it's not cable at all.

    So, yeah, 20 mb/s is probably the best I'll get until they start developing and upgrading the towers in my area.

    I think, you you just press begin test, it pits you against the node closest to you, which is not really a good measure. Other than that - yes, this is a decent site, which is actually used a lot by MMO players when they want to measure approximate ping from their location to the place where MMO servers are.

    I've been doing this various of times before but here it is today. I think my country is one of the country that is in the range of slow internet.

    I don't know if this is good or bad, but I know this current computer isn't the best. (May have some affect on the results, I'm not quite sure, so if I am wrong then ignore this)

    EDIT: I know now that it isn't affected by the computer and that it isn't that bad, so that's nice to know! ^-^
