Speed Freak

Just had the cable man over to switch out my old cable modem for the brand new one which supports the "Extreme" broadband internet I ordered.

I *was* getting bandwidth test speeds of ~350 kbps. Now on the same tests I'm getting 6.5 Mbps! That's like, 19 times faster!

I'm in love with the Internet all over again.

UPDATE March 22, 2010: This is hilarious. If I had to put up with this kind of crappy speed today I would be somersaulting in furious tantrum waiting for downloads to complete. Today I have 25 Mpbs. Five years from now I will look back at today and laugh my guts out all over again.
