Hi. I'm with Videotron near Montreal and with the TGV60 service, I hit an average of 62 Mbps down and 3.0 upstream. At 94.72$ a month, this thing better rock although you'll agree with me that upstream could be somewhat speedier in this day and age!

Shaw Extreme (25/2.5) in Calgary. Don't know why, but only on Linux I can get this result. On Windows 7 I get around 20-22 down.
In HD, even the commercials are enjoyable!

The results are not accurate. I am actually getting near what my ISP advertises (39 Mbps vice 5.7 with testmy) because I can see current DL speeds with my binary news reader.

and here is the speed test results again:

That about 5 MB/s for the test, and 4.7 MB/sec sustained download speed with a news reader, and I am not even sure is the news reader or server is getting bottle necked at all since I can only have 10 connections...
I would say testmy is a poor choice of testing ISPs as it is not even close to what actual speeds really are (for me anyways)

Default New TekSavvy customer

My TekSavvy Extreme Cable connection was activated today in Markham and I couldn't be happier! Although advertised at 15Mb/s (compared to Rogers at 12MB/s), I'm getting actual throughput of 17Mb/s down compared to 9Mb/s down from Rogers. Add that to a cap of 300GB/mo, no traffic shaping, and $10 cheaper! Farewell, Rogers!

Cool Slow speeds?

Ugh I am on Telus download speed is 13.95 Mb/s.......slow? Should it be faster?

Upload speed is 0.69 Mb/s.

Speedtest says I rate a "C" Nationally and Globally.

Moved from Teksavvy DSL to Cogeco this week. Big improvement in service and speeds.

On the T20 package (20M down/ 1.5M up). Have been getting these speeds (sustained). Also, I have the IP Phone package on the same modem.

Switched from Bell 4Mb unlimited to Teksavvy 12Mb unlimited today. I live in downtown Toronto in a five year old condo. With Bell we were getting max speeds. With Teksavvy it's less than max.

Is this normal?

TP-Link 8816 ADSL2 modem. Latest firmware.

Maybe your line is not able to handle more than ~ 10mbps. You can ask TSI what is your line stat, or you could get your line stat yourself.

The modem you have is not supported on the best tool: DMT Tool, but you can use OrbMT to get basic line stat

you can find the software there:

The software is in English and it will give your your maximum attainable line speed (RCO). If you are close to 100% there's nothing you can do about it except try to clean your internal wire.

hope this help

Got some help from TSI tech Martin. Turns out I didn't disconnect all phones (went dry loop.) There was one left that was still plugged in with a filter. Once that was gone the download speed went up to about 10.50Mbps which is in the ballpark of my expectations.
