Internet Connection Speeds
« on: April 25, 2010, 12:53:06 PM »
Ok, Clawhammer and I are working on the new forum skin and we have a couple neat little ideas in mind but I want to get a general feel for the connection speeds people are on right now, the ideas we have might make page load times increase a fair amount for members on dialup... so before we go ahead and implement them I would like to get a feel for who is on what.

Whoever is on dialup do you think you could post what the load times are for you... it would help... actually that goes for anyone.

I'm on a slow DSL, and the loading time is more than acceptable.
The first page takes a few seconds, but after that, all is as smooth as can be.

I'm pretty sure I'm on regular DSL, and the only time this place takes more than ~10 seconds is if my connection is acting up for some reason.

Can you even sign up for Dial-Up now?

Yea... a couple of my friends are still stuck on it, highspeed still hasn't reached EVERYONE yet.... frankly I dont know why those people wouldn't just go for a wireless plan. Hell, I can get like 1Mbit connection on my phone.

I'm currently using a satellite internet provider.  I have no idea how fast it is, but it didn't take more than a few seconds to load the pages so far.  Although sometimes it acts up (even if there's no clouds or rain or anything).

I'm using the slowest Verizon Fios speed offered and load time seems almost instant for me.
