Question about HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop
I thought i would do a couple of test one with oz broadband speedtest.com that report was: for 15MB took 323.94sec, line speed 387 kbps (0.39 mbps) and download speed 48 kb/s(0.05) and i also done one through speedtest.com that test was: download 426kb/s upload 94kb/s ping 120ms and distance <50m now wonder it's not hard to get confused.do you know if this right for adsl2,just right or majorally slow.i thought this would be of some help to you to explain to me with what we were talking about........whiteox
This type of testing is like the "Quick brown fox ... " testing to measure upload (U to them) speed and the download (them to U) speed. The results are in line with slow DSL. DSL is digital over a phone wire, it faster than dail-up but not by much. 2 maybe 3x.
DSL does not use a large enough wire to have a broadband response, ergo, not as fast. When they talk about ping, think of sonar in water. Its a single pulse sent and echoed back from your pc to the website, via any modems, relays or hosts. This type of testing does not concern any error checking as is taken into account with the up/download measuring.
Cable, if available, is still the fastest for the cost. Only the T(x) lines are faster due to wire size and parallel feeds, very, very spendy and limited availablitity.
Hope that helped.
