    Default testing the new comcast high speed
    I like it.

    The picture below is my speed test on my wireless router.

    I'm finally getting to use the iMac to it's full potential. 2.4ghz, 4gb ram. Also note those speeds are on my OLD tear drop Apple router. Not an N-router.

    I'll tell you this..... you better not blink or you'll miss something.

    Not bad! I have the 8mbps package. It seems to mainly affect the uploads.

    this isn't comcast, but cox (my ISP) uses the same powerboost stuff comcast does.

    let's see what the upload is on the 21st when they upgrade it

    (this is cox's 7m/512k plan, upgraded to 9m/768k on the 21st )

    Are those results of the regular speed or the "powerboost" component (first 20 megs)? Just trying to understand the results.
