connection stats

As per Ryan’s request, here are some statistics on the new internet connection the Melissa and I have. It’s advertised as a 2mbit down/384kbit up connection. The physical connection between me and my ISP is a microwave link. When talking to a computer at my ISP, I can get about 1.1-1.2 Mb down (~160kb/sec). I can ping ISP computers at around 15-25ms.

Talking to google, I get around 45-65ms pings. Better than the cable modem in Logansport.

From here at work, I don’t have any trouble getting full bandwidth from the upstream of the microwave link. I’ve downloaded files from my server at home at around 48kb/sec, which is the max for the link.
