Downloading Nine Inch Nails super fast!

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

A little while ago I was talking about my internet speed here in Japan and I must say that today I’m loving it! I downloaded the latest Nine Inch Nails album in about 45 seconds. Not bad for $50 a month internet service! Here’s a screen shot I took.

What’s your internet speed?

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

I have fiber optic internet here in Japan and for about $50 USD per month it’s a pretty good deal for how fast it is. It’s cheaper than my old Comcast cable modem too. Sometimes it seems lightening fast, other times sites from the U.S. load slow but it could be on the other end and not the fault of my ISP. I tested my internet speed today and here are the results. My ISP said it’s a 100mbps line and I’m only getting 25 so I might change my provider to see what other options are like.
