I'm running a Win XP Pro, SP3 box. I have ADSL internet service. I'm considering ditching my two A T T telephone lines (voice & DSL) and use local cable company telephone and internet service.
I want to compare my ADSL download speed with what the cable company promises.
1. When I download a file, Firefox "Downloads" (Ctl, J) consistently runs at 70 to 80 "KB/sec". I did a small test and downloaded 9.1 Meg in 60 seconds.
2. On Control Panel, "Network" tab, the speed is shown at "0.06 to "0.07" % with Link Speed 1Gbps.
3. The cable company promises up to
"7 Meg." They don't tell you Meg/???. I assume is is 10 Meg/Min.
The image below is two screen shots from the cable company advertising their various internet download speed.
What speed am I likely (ball park, rule of thumb) to experience when it says up to
What is the approximate download speed difference between ADSL and cable 10Meg cable?
How do I do the calculation?
