I have been wondering as I always hear people say I have a 100mb/s connectoin(I belive they are reffering to there network which means jack crap). But is T3 still the fastest? I don't remember how fast it is off hand...(Yes I did search google.com and found the 100mb/s are what idiots say...)
No, T3 isn't nearly the fastest.

There are optical carrier lines, I found some info:

Dedicated line broadband speeds and prices
T-1 - 1.544 megabits per second (24 DS0 lines) Ave. cost $400.-$550./mo.
T-3 - 43.232 megabits per second (28 T1s) Ave. cost $4,000.-$16,000./mo.
OC-3 - 155 megabits per second (100 T1s) Ave. cost $20,000.-$45,000./mo.
OC-12 - 622 megabits per second (4 OC3s) no estimated price available
OC-48 - 2.5 gigabits per seconds (4 OC12s) no estimated price available
OC-192 - 9.6 gigabits per second (4 OC48s) no estimated price available

Found from here.

*drools*

That's that kind of connection I want.

What type of connection you think the White House has?
Dial Up? =P

Dunno, I do know that most millitary places have T3 since my friend used to live on a base. He didn't get T3, he got regular broadband speeds fed off the T3. Still though.

I have a T1 connection and it costs me $70 a month...wonder what the difference is between that "T1" and mine? My connection goes at about 2 megabits per second.

Bull. I get 1.5 megabits per second (downstream) for, like, $80 a month. In Australian dollars.

I can't imagine that getting even 1.5 megabits per second upstream would be that expensive. If you're paying that much, you're getting seriously ripped off. And this is coming from someone who lives in a country with expensive telecommunications.

Eh i think Cable is ALOT cheaper and it can be hacked and [profanity is against the community standards, thanks] lol

My Bro Pays 30-40$ for 1mb i think and he got a special modem and now his at 10mb so its good for the price.

i on the other hand have stolen dial up -.-
In response to SSJ2GohanDBGT (#1)
Those prices are bs, some place I saw had OC-48 at like 1000 a month. -.-

I call BS. My cable's faster than that (just about 2x as much) and it's only $50 per month USD.

You have 310 mbps?
In response to Cheetoz (#9)
300.
Charter > you
In response to SSJ2GohanDBGT (#1)
What is a megabit in relation to a megabyte? =/
In response to Ol' Yeller (#10)
Our desktop computer had 400 for a while, but now it's back to 100 ='(
In response to Ol' Yeller (#10)
WTF, where is this Charter [stuff]. I want 300mbps!

So do I.

You probably have that many kbps, not mbps. If you have over 300mbps then you are about 500x faster than even a good cable connection.

A direct ethernet cable networking 2 computers even gets only 100mbps, but cable internet is only 100th that speed.

Lies. =p There's no way you're paying $50 USD / month for a connection like that.

Speed test your connection and post the results. I wanna see. =)

for my laptop:

4 megabits per second

Communications 4 megabits per second
Storage 491.6 kilobytes per second
1MB file download 2.1 seconds
Subjective rating Awesome


Awsome XD
In response to Elation (#11)
Communications 36.9 kilobits per second
Storage 4.5 kilobytes per second
1MB file download 3.8 minutes
Subjective rating Slow


8 bits = 1 Byte
8 Megabits = 1 Megabyte
8 Gigabits = 1 Gigabyte
8 Terrabits = 1 Terrabyte

So on
In response to Elation (#11)
Megabyte/8 = Megabit
In response to Crispy (#5)
Eh, I doubt it as well. That's why I posted the site. I've never actually owned a T1 line, known anyone personally who did, or anything like that.
