    Depends on the site, really. Big and trusted by many is the way to go with stuff like this... dslreports is the only place I ever really use for speed checks.

                    Just pointing out the diversity in the results from place to place...

                    I *HAVE* noticed that my upload speeds have been insane for the past month, but I hadn't bothered testing them until now.

                      Same here, I read on my provider's webpage that they upped my upload speed to 2Mbps. I used to average around 40KB/s, now I get around 150KB/s

                            Looks like COX has a 15MB down / 2MB up for $49.95/month now too!

                              My mother ... had... COX in New Orleans. It was always superb.

                              Comcast is taking over RR Midsouth's customer base in 2006, and I regularly find myself getting excited about Cox coming to town, until I remember.. oh yeah... it's Comcast... not Cox. heh.
