The Netgear wireless routing appears to be slowing ping times slightly from last night.
local was 80 - 100
international was 250-300
That is amazing those speeds. Screw DSL now. bring me Cell C uncapped services now
Some tests in Mowbray, Cape Town using the E1752

Cell C stellenbosch was outa stock of the 60 Gig sim (now i can at least afford food heheehe....) so got the 24 gig. Tested inside shop (bottom middle of big concrete mall) and got ~5 Mbit/s dl (Cell C modem). Tested at my varsity dept with my vodafone k3565 and getting 2.8 Mbit/s dl and rather paltry 0.4 Mbit/s up. Don't know why up is so slow, might just be the location! But I am happy as I don't have to FORK out R389 pm for 2gig to vodascum anymore!!!!!
OK just did some new tests, this time not standing near my laptop (modem plugged in right next to my arm....)
Jo'burg Cell C server: Dl 3.69 Mbit/s
Up 0.31 Mbit/s
Ping 0.178 ms
New York server: Dl 2.31 Mbit/s
Up 0.18 Mbit/s
Ping 0.718 ms
Happy with the New york dl but wtf up with ping?! Maybe time of day (america waking up....)
Will test later tonight at my flat and see if there is a difference!
