Time Warner Internet Speed Test April 2014

I noticed that Time Warner Internet monthly bill went up again from $34.99 to $37.99 in April 2014. This is the Lite service with 1Mbps for upload and download.  I am signing up for the Standard service with 15Mbps download and 1Mbps upload for $34.99 for first 12 months. Then after that price will go up to retail price, which is not specified.

This is the screenshot of the speed test with the Lite service:









The next day, 4/12/2014, I ran the tests again and the highest I got was with the CT server:









Most other servers give 2 to 6Mbps for download and 1Mbps for upload.  Going farther to west coast servers, Hawaii server, and Taiwan server, the download speeds are all between 0.5Mbps and 2Mbps with upload still at 1Mbps. So it seems like the benefit of having the Standard service with up to 15Mbps download speed is limited and highly depends on the origin of the data we are trying to download.

I think Speed test gives an arrangement of accessible servers everywhere throughout the world that could be utilized for testing, returned as XML. In the wake of parsing the XML record, we utilize an utility system to concentrate traits for every server into an exhibit. You have done good work. I would like to say Thanks for sharing such a nice article.
