Just How Fast Are Lifehacker Readers’ Net Connections?

Just How Fast Are Lifehacker Readers’ Net Connections?

Yesterday we invited you to compare your speed to other readers on the Lifehacker Speed Wave, and you responded in huge numbers. But are we really enjoying average download speeds of 17Mb/s?

That said, if we exclude the top six results (all of which had average speeds over 100Mb/s), the download speed drops to 15.37M/s, while excluding the top six upload results reduces the average upload speed to 6.3Mb/s. I’m still jealous of people with AARnet connections and other high-speed links though.

Thanks everyone for taking part (and if you haven’t, the wave is still open).
