We got a fun and easy request from the Communication Workers of America — the Speed Matters folks. Last year, they published a state-by-state report on Internet connection speed based on regular folks visiting the Speed Maters web site to test and report their Internet speed and location.
Well, they have asked us to help publicize research for their next edition of the report. So, if you have a minute please check out your speed on their site to help them compile data.
The timing for the test could not have been better for me. We moved back to St Paul late last week – tomorrow my new phone number and upgraded DSL connection are supposed to kick in – so I was pleased to get a chance to test out the speeds today to compare with the results tomorrow.
Here are my stats today:
Download 1310 kbps (MN average 1385)
Upload 854 kbps (MN average 219)
I’ll let you know how the test goes tomorrow.
