    Pretty much a personal Speedtest.net comparison ladder thingy, click the link, test your connection speed and it gets added to my list to compare with everyone else.

    Can't try it as I'm at work but how does this differ from regular speedtest?

    Speedtest doesn't really give the whole picture. It replied with 20-25Mbps for me even when i was downloading at 6MB/s+

    Yeah it's strange for me also......only ever reports up to about 60-80Mb/s but I know I can max the connection on downloads with much higher speeds :/

    Downloading at the same time? Or what lol, it's pretty bang on for me >_>

    Who's Brutal Deluxe btw?? Absolutely killed it! >_< Hope my scores are like that when my new modem arrives lol. At least my ping is good!

    I'm currently listed as Telstra Elite Cable but I'll be adding a separate acc under Telstra Ultimate when my modem arrives this week.

    I'll jump on this when I get home, I've seen 115 a few times from speed test myself.

    Thought id share my experience.
    Tech came to install on scheduled day (Monday) and tried to connect using my 10 year old unused cable and failed.
    He then said he'd be back on Sat morn to install new cable (which is what he came for in the first place) but failed to show up.
    I recieved a phone call from telstra at 2pm saying the tech was rushed to hospital:rolleyes: and rescheduled for Monday morning (today).
    Noone showed up again, so i spent 2 hours on the phone only to be offered 2 free months and install on Wed.

    I tried for 6 mths free to no avail so told them to shove it.:wired:
    I hate Telstra sooo much.

    Haha as if you can beat me :Pirate:

    I like how you've had 9 cracks at it to get to #1 :lol:

    I think I can crack 116 on a good day too :D

    Certainly we've got great connections. I cant believe I can download at 12.5MB/sec. Beats my ASDL 2+ connection that sync'd at 6mbit :rolleyes:

    So I was meant to have my install today, the tech came out and couldnt install.

    He ordered a tap upgrade to 8 port which takes 10 business days and then they do the install.
