Results of cable speed test

Whoa! Okay, here are the results. I compared 2 files of similar size, although they may be off by +/- a few megabytes:

DSL: 43 minute long episode of Battlestar Galactica: 54 minutes to download.
Cable: 45 minute long episode of Battlestar Galactica: 13 minutes to download.

That is pretty damn impressive!

All of this cobbling together of cables and wireless network has made me hungry. I think I’m going to treat myself to Outback tonight!
