I have 768k service, but am not sure how this translates to the spped that is shown when I download using getright.

I used to see downloads around 90Kb and then last month it went to 240Kb... I changed nothing. I had always thought 90Kb was = to the 768k I was offered. When I started recieving 200+ I began to wonder if I should be seeing 768Kb when I download.

I ran a speed test and it reported that I had a result as folows

Your download speed : 1825108 bps, or 1825 kbps.
A 222.7 KB/sec transfer rate.

Does this mean I am getting more than the 768 I am advertised or shorted...

Thanks for your time.
Mike

seems to me that your cable/dsl company decided to get with the times and offer 1.5-2.0 Mb connection.. either that or you have a problem with your billing, if I were you I would call them and be sure you havn't been "upgraded" to a more expensive plan without your knowledge..

In any case, I dont think they've been shorting you if you were given the expectation of 768kbps and your now able to achieve 1.8Mb


Enjoy!!
