That's quite high. I once barely reach 0.5 Mb/s on both upload and download when I lived in the countryside once.

I have the "Speedboost" service. :p

To be fair, it makes sense that all the posters before me should measure speedtest on 1 point so we're all measuring the same thing. obviously you can achieve double/triple digits on 50-200 miles.

Woah that's a big difference between download and upload.

Also, what's with the people in the hundreds?!? o_O

Seeing I've gone over my cap (ISP's fault) I'm pulling a whopping 30KB/s... I'm looking forward to NBN rolling out in Australia, 100Mb/s down and 8Mb/s up -- I'd love that!

most of them seem to be from a university and thus using the university's internet, which is usually pretty fast (especially during non-peak hours), others seem to be the ISP boosting speeds for speed test but not actually providing those speeds outside of that

Of course when you need speed, get a server. :p

I am supposed to be getting about 10Mb/s but not even close...



Wanna swap Ghan?

Interesting that I wasn't in the Internet evolution of ~3 years.

Same upload/download speed since 2007.

(Ps... You gotta love what Speedtest has done, right beside the grade level.)

Slow. I'm on a mountain in Idaho connected to an ISP that's overloaded with kids downloading way too much stuff they'll never use after school.

If you want to be pessimistic about it. It's slow if you were to compare it to the fastest possible connection, however, it's faster than 82% of other people that have tested their connection's speeds. So theres something to be happy about.
So if you want to look at it that way, go for it. I'll be enjoying my fast internet speed, not really caring that yours, or anyone elses, is faster. :)

I would suspect Varine is talking about his own connection, not yours. And nice speeds btw...

>>>>>

I'm on a 30Mbps down, 1Mbps up plan w/ a 200GB cap. Then I get slowed to 64Kbps, or 16KB/s -- that's real fun.

I got Grade A on both my speed test and ping test. The former showed 24Mbps down, 1.15Mbps up, 10-15ms ping. I'm faster than 88% of AU, but at full speed I should be faster than 95% of AU :D. The latter showed 0% packet loss, 27ms ping (450 miles away) and 1ms jitter.

It's ridiculous that after my cap my 3G connection on my phone is ~25x faster up and down. Ping is 300-400ms in League of Legends though, and at some point it flips out randomly and jumps up to 2500+. Although, the servers have been doing that lately to people on WiFi, myself included, so it may not be the phone's fault :p

Fun playing with 5000ms ping though...

If that is the case, then one would post a "speedtest" of their connection in the post. A post without a "speedtest" picture would then be assumed to be a reply to the "speedtest" posted most recently, or if there was a quote in the post, the "speedtest" from the quote in the post.

As for my speed, I haven't got to play with it much yet, as we got it while I was in the hospital. Doh :)
Time to, errr, play lots of Xbox and download things at the same time? I don't know, what do you look forward to doing with fast internet? Lol :D

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
