    Default How fast is your internet connection?

    After the success of the exchange rate thread (started in 2003) where we've
    collaborated on exchange rates around the country, I am starting this thread
    for people who want to find out if they're getting the speed they're paying
    for. Does this matter? Well, it already helped me to get a 20X increase in
    the speed of my internet connection.

    All ISPs (Codetel, Aster, Tricom, Wind, etc) have different routes out of
    the country and if you're on the wrong routing it can have a huge impact on
    your internet performance. This thread isn't intended to be posted to every
    day, but if you're installing a new line or want to benchmark your
    connection with what other people are getting, this is the place to go to.
    Please post your own results so we can continue to monitor the situation
    around the country. You'll be glad you did, since you'll have a record of
    your own internet connection performance in case you have problems in the
    future with your internet and need to compare it.

    To share your information, please answer these simple questions:
    1. ISP, reported speed, location
    2. Run this test via the NYC server: Speakeasy-
    Speed Test

    3. Watch this video and note the time when the entire video is buffered:

    4. Post your traceroute to yahoo (windows: tracert yahoo.com, mac:
    traceroute yahoo.com)

    This information is not true.

    Almost all use the same international connection to the internet via Puerto Plata.
    The routing is another issue, it could be transparent via VPN or it could be public via routing.

    The problem you had, was probably a bad connection to the DsLAM, or local network. In this case, you are admiting that Codetel was not limiting the bandwidth to a specific site (YouTube.com) but a problem of routing, ider loqical or virtual.

    I'm sorry!
    Next time I have a communication problem, I will ask you, and see if you, could help me, diagnose the problem.

    I was only TTCYI.

    Lightbulb Fyi...........

    This is the speedtest that the Codetel tech used when at our house yesterday testing the internet line..............

    I haven't seen this site posted here before and you might find it helpful to use before / during / after you deal with Codetel..............

    ..........Since it is "their" test site, they really shouldn't be able to argue about the results...............although you never know!!!!
