Internet Speed Comparison


#1

Hey guys I just wanted to show off my fiber optic connection and to see how fast people internet is.
You can test yours at speedtest.net


#2

0 ms ping, its fiber optics internet.


#3

Here is mine to Richmond ~50 miles


#4

Here is one to Toronto ~500 miles


#5

I’d show you what the speeds are here at VSLive! but it would be embarrassing for everyone.


#6

Now, you have to show it!

@ Architect
Man those are crazy speeds. Where are those from, home,work or university/college


#8

These are from work. I have fiber at home as well. Just checked what it looks like for a location across the ocean. Not as good! Will check from home later


#9

Work, I knew it! Oversea internet for me sucks too


#10

100x better than it was this morning. Maybe they’re getting their stuff worked out.


#11

How is VSLive by the way?


#12

Just the day-zero workshops so far. I’m in the “SQL for developers” one, where the new stuff in SSDT and SQL 2012 are really neat, and the BI stuff is really boring :wink:


#13

We just switched to 2012. Great stuff!


#14

I’ve got a passing grade from home, barely …

We’re in the process of buying 2008R2, but we’re getting the Software Assurance - so we’ll be on 2012 when SP1 comes out.

When is the RTM/RTW for 2012?


#15

Here’s mine from Menifee to Los Angeles… about 70 miles.
I’m on Verizon FIOS fiber optic.


#16

RTM for 2012 was a couple weeks ago.
