    For the "web host" I used TOAST.net CA in Canada; I am in Southern Illinois. I recently got cable and I'm just curious as to how my computer does compared to others, on the test it scored higher than the others listed.

    Here is what I got:

    Image - 1.281 seconds - 2586kb
    Large Image - 3.187 seconds - 2659kb
    Text - .078 seconds - 34952kb
    Text and Image - 1.359 seconds - 4444kb

    if you were using that to test ur new DSL, i suggest trying mult online tests...when i used to install DSL, we'd perform an online test for the cust so they knew we were giving them what they bought...some would be quite differ than others....just a little FYI
