Wow, is no one that's posted using dail-up? Those look like decent numbers to me ...

Here's my speed on our ADSL connection (the benefit of living on-campus, free high-speed internet!
) :

Download Speed: 1052 kbps (131.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 269 kbps (33.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

I do wish we had better upload speeds though, sometimes it takes a while to upload a large file onto our servers, I am always transfering files between my home computer and the school's servers for class projects and such! (And our apartment is on the school network! The ADSL must be the bottleneck; I had faster speeds when I lived in the dorms my first year and had an Ethernet connection
)

Your computer is obviously downloading a file from this test site to test the download speed (then uploading the file back to the test site), so you're going to have data coming into your computer from both the test site and the music site as you download two files, so that's more traffic ... try the test when you're not downloading music and then we'll know!

Yep, GG ADSL is usually pretty slow. Not as slow as dialup, but relatively speaking compared to cable or fiberoptic.
To answer your other question regarding Liz's question. Yep it sure does matter if you are DLing music and trying to run the test. Think of it as water running through a hose. Only so much water can go thru a hose. If you divert some of that water to another spigot at the same time, then you will get less water out of two spigots. But the total of those two spigots will equal the maximum.

And since we rarely download files or use streaming media or anything, I normally don't mind!

And best of all, it's free! When I lived off-campus during the summer, I shared my in-laws' AOL dail-up account, and that was annoying

Yep you're right. It is faster than dialup. But beleive it or not, your download is only 2x the speed of a 56K dialup

Oh, I should mention our cable modem is free also, but I can't tell you how we get it for free or I would have to kill you
