    I would only embarrass you all by putting York's speed test up a second time.

    Hehe, not if you're in the computer science building



    That's not the best I've seen it at either.
    I haven't had the impulse to try it when not on Resnet. Maybe if I remember I will.

    FML.

    At least a 60 fold difference.

    7 minutes of Alex's life = 7 hours of mine.

    Warwick have the worst speeds on here
    So true. They basically have a 85MBPS connection that is capped at the residences.

    I've seen people at the University House download files at 5MB a second. Crazy stuff.

    Stupid capped internet..

    Maths dept.

    If it isn't the case for the library, then I assume Comp Sci and Maths share the same connection and elsewhere is separate :dontknow:

    I have seen a computer that accesses the uni network that has no cap in place, it was able to (potentially) download at 1Gb/second!

    There is a cap on our computers, so we won't get the full upload, but we can upload multiple files at a time, pretty fast, without sacrificing any other speed.
