    I will have to try and see what my non ISP router gives me compared to my ISP router even though it is a dynalink modem and my non ISP is a DSE modem

    Hehe - my ISP router (THomson) had the worst ping ever - made online gaming impossible. Bought a new Netcomm NB6 and problem solved.

    haha yeah, I'm actually quite excited to see the difference on things like online gaming. But with this PSN 'outage' debacle, that'll have to wait :p I've already noticed download speeds are much, much better.

    You also chose a server 1300 miles closer to your physical location the second time so it's not really a consistent test.

    I think it was a glitch, I did the test again that night and it connected to the closest one to me (Perth) and got pretty much identical stats. So it's as consistent as it can be, I just never bothered changing the picture.

    Interet felt super fast today, so I decided to check - I think the result is worth of a thread-bump :aah:

    I did quite well considering that this is an unlimited plan that I've had for roughly 6 YEARS.

    Work is sloooooow. Mind you this is lunchtime. To give you some idea of how bad internet is in the area I work in, this speed is only achievable with a bonded ADSL consisting of 4 lines. lol.
