No Idea of the details (Super or someone else maybe?)
But we don't actually have an ISP, we serve as our own Gateway direct to a Telstra connection.
Notice the "ISP field"

United Group Limited is the company I work for, we're not an ISP though.

I think I can answer this 1...

So you have a direct connection to the Internet so theoretically you do not have an ISP (but you do use a telstra connection.... I'm pretty sure every1 does?)

The reason your speeds are so high is that you are choosing a server housed fairly locally. If you were to test off a US server i think it will still b fairly high but it still needs to go through the pipe running to US with the rest of us.

In other words your company has a relatively large ammount of bandwith because it is shared internally, and does not go through an ADSL connection. I have done a bit of work for Sydney Uni and thaey get similar speeds.

This is my works

ok...so i was browsing through the qd forum yesterday and discovered a thread on speed tests. I had a read just out of curiosity to c wat other people get.

It turns out that iinet have a section where you can monitor your speed. For 3 fucking years I have had mine at the adsl setting with a maximum download of 8mb/s. WTF

I realised and changed it last night. My speed nearly doubled and am now sitting oround the 13mb/s and about 0.86 mb/s upload. I had no idea!!!!

Found out my cap has also been upped to 50GB on 50GB off. Don't I feel like an idiot!

Ive been with them for a while. I have no complaints, but I haven't really been with any other ISP's so can't really compare. I do hear that internode and TPG are also good.

Interesting

I have been fiddling around with the connection speeds of my internet (like Azza said, with iinet you can change settings) and measuring it at speedtest.com and this is what happened:



Standard Speed
DL - 14.3
UL - 0.83

Thrillseeker
DL - 15.87
UL - 0.86

Gamer
DL - 10.94
UL - 1.02


Its worth noting that in the first 2 settings I could only host 12 players in Warhawk, on Gamer I can host 16!

Probably worth noting that Gamer most likely has a process called interleaving turned off which will lead to a unstable connection on poorer lines

You might want to monitor its uptime closely

Much better than Wireless. This is ADSL 1 as well.
