    Speaking of internet, today is International Internet Day.
    International Internet Day is celebrated worldwide, every year on 29th of October. Since the year 2005 the International Internet Day has been famously celebrated to commemorate a momentous day in the history of telecommunications and technology. This was the event of the sending of the first message, first electronic message which was transferred from one computer to another in 1969. This was situated in California, in the USA. Today the International Internet Day is also an on-line project germinating from the society, of the society and for the society. The International Internet Day project is open to everyone and anyone just as access to the internet is open and free for everyone. The International Internet Day thus celebrates this grand democratic fervor which in essential is linked to this idea of liberation, where everyone is afforded an equal opportunity and an equal advantage to share of services, which connect the world to each other.

    Nice little bump David Gotta love Comcast internet. I have paid the same since I got it 20+ years ago (wasn't cheap then), and it was 3 or 4 Meg. I have 55Meg now, and they just upgraded it, no requests or anything needed from me. A Guy

    I can really tell the difference with NetFlix movies.
    They load almost immediately.

    Brad, judging from a few indicators like the date (11/34/14), PDT for Hawaii, B.S. Cable, and Lackanookie, I'm guessing (pure guess of course) that the speeds are somewhat bogus.

    Speeds "speedtest.net" shows the speed between your computer and your provider. If you want to see real pid you may expect downloading something, you have to set Speedtest.net to site that file/s are coming from and only than it may approximate speed of downloading you may expect. That may wary with load that site sending the file from or load of internet nodes it has to go thru.
    So, you can get into situation when you have great speed between you and your ISP and still have download going extremely slow. In any case download can go no faster then the maximum speed between your ISP and you.
