and I just noticed those speed tests were done while I was downloading some more important business files (The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion, and GRID).

I just ran a speed test and here were my results:

16480 kb/s download

No, it's not always that slow. Recently there was a period of about 4 days when I could only connect at speeds like this.
26kbs is about average around here.

I get about 6-8MB/s with my cable connexion. It's pretty fast, but it costs a fortune, and they cap my usage.

Educational places don't count :P

The cost of those connections is massive.

I personally get 2mb download and 0.2mb upload at home, it's good enough.

Well, Nyahhh to you then.

Home is about 10 M download, and between 500K and 1M upload, so not too shabby.
On a good day, I can get about 500 kilobytes per second through a torrent here.

My personal download record is a 700 megabyte Top gear episode in 58 seconds... but that was at university - using a download accelerator to get 12 Megabytes a second.

I appears your university is running an T-3 (45 MB) pipe to the internet and is pretty typical for collegiate connectivity these days. However, enjoy it while you can...those become much more rare out in the real world.

Nothing like spending £30,000 a year for bragging rights on download speeds in your neighbourhood though :)

I've got 441 kb/s download and 413 kb/s upload. Not very impressive, considering the cost of our service, and the fact that we pay ridiculous extra charges after we exceed 2GB per month total bandwidth usage.
