Google Fiber

Post by S7 Panzer on Sat Jul 18, 2015 10:27 am

I just moved to Kansas City yesterday and just had Google Fiber installed. In short, just WOW the speed.

First speed test is simply with my closest hub which happens to be hosted by Google Fiber. Results below.



Second I had speedtest try getting data from Chicago. Results below.



Finally the funniest thing is I started download Batman Origins and ran into a bottleneck I didn't expect. My 7.2k RPM hard drive could not keep up with the download speed. I'm not sure what Steams theoretical max transfer is but I bet they have a cap. The download with this limitation still took only ~10 minutes with a max download speed of 62.3 MB/S.

Very nice man. Now that just needs to spread across the entire US so we're up to par with other tech countries

Agreed as I haven't hit a service that doesn't bottleneck the connection at about 1/3 - 1/2 its theoretical max.
