Yes it's true. I'm in Huntington Beach CA, A.K.A. Surf City U.S.A. My rig is in the dining room. The wireless ac router is a couple rooms away so I need a signal booster in between. The router is 2.4GHz and 5GHz. It's an Arris DG1670 http://www.arrisi.com/products/product.asp?id=684 The signal booster is an engenius made by cisco. So is my 3.0 USB adapter. The spped is not that great considering placement and being wireless and all. Still I'm getting 52Mbps on the download and 20Mbps upload. Really I swear. http://angryhippy.net/images/speedtestdotnet.jpg
My kid has a Lenovo workstation from some company running Win7 64bit. Now get this. I know it might be hard for you to believe, I didn't till I watched the speed test with my own eyes. It's slightly faster since it's hard wired with a cat5e. He's getting, are you ready for this...220Mbps on the download and 65Mbps on the upload. We have Time Warner and I'm paying $75 a month for it. They just went completely digital and upgraded my extreme internet package from 30Mbps to 200Mbps no extra charge. Take that Tokyo! About time we had some decent speed in this country

What da faaaaak!???!?!?!? Wow man, that is freaking amazing. The ISP here is called Choice Cable and I'm pretty satisfied with the service except its upload speeds which are like 1 or 2 mb.

What do you do with such a fast internet? I wouldn't even.... oh wait! Re-download every Steam game you own just for the hell of it.

Hello,

I think it is a speed which is used in storage industry for basic storage and server needs. Even in surveillance, that speed of upload and download is more than enough.....i mean it is just Wowwwwww!

I guess, your ISP has to be awarded for its service by the fed government. Or something fishy is going on in the background. Like some times, some softwares can give fake details or some kind of server error might be causing a jack up in your speed.

I mean it is a server speed of an ISP which is divided to users.

May be you should look at the following links

I wish I got better than I do. When everyone here is on, we mainly stream netflix/hulu etc and I play mostly online games... Point of the story, we bog the speed down to 5mb or lower at times.

The best that's offered in my area is 75/15. Anytime I have talked to one of our RCN reps they always tell me that I am one of the very few in the whole coverage area that has this speed.

Naveen, that is pretty much day to day speeds. No special times or anything. The fastest I've seen it on the hard wired system is 227MBps. Tonight down in the 170's. Still ya can't hardly complain. See the link on the previous post. I checked these results with a few different apps. OOKLA speedtest.net, Speakeasy speakeasy.net/speedtest/ InternetFrog internetfrog.com Pretty consistant. Except one that took me from 65MBps to 3MBps. Now that result is questionable.
