I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

evdo speed update

[ #34484 ]

Crome mentioned to me that my upload and download speeds seemed lousy, and it occurred to me that maybe the problem was that I'd hit a server that couldn't give me much more than 70 KB/s sustained upstream. Today, I tried DSL Reports' speed test, not so much because I think it's super accurate, but because I knew it would be easy, and would be able to give me a better estimate than scping from a random host.

It tells me that I get 1144 Kbps down and 278 Kbps up, with a latency of 127 ms. That puts it about on par with my DSL.

  • I've gotten as good as 2200 down, 700 up. But your numbers are typical for busy-afternoon metro rates.
