What is your speed test?

I see comcast was doing some upgrade on the line around my house and I have it test just now and wow it seem a really improvement on my speed on these days




http://www.speedtest.net/

What speeds do I need for Skype, Netflix, video games, etc.?

Here are the recommended connection speeds for many popular Internet activities.
If you are doing multiple things at once online or sharing a connection with multiple 
computers, then these recommended speeds may not be enough. All speeds are
 provided in the Speedtest.net default of Mbps (megabits per second).

Skype (source: Skype Support)

  • For voice calls: 0.1 Mbps download / 0.1 Mbps upload
  • For video calls: 0.5 Mbps download / 0.5 Mbps upload
  • For HD video calls: 1.5 Mbps download / 1.5 Mbps upload
An important note: these connection speed requirements include downloading and 
uploading at the same time. Since Speedtest.net tests download and upload 
separately for accuracy, your results will need to be higher than the the numbers 
provided above. For example, your upload speed may be 2 Mbps in the Speedtest.net 
result, but may go down to 1 Mbps while your connection is downloading something 
at the same time.

Netflix (source: Netflix Help)

  • Recommended broadband connection speed: 1.5 Mbps download
  • For HD quality: 5.0 Mbps download

YouTube (source: YouTube Help)

  • Recommended: at least 0.5 Mbps download
YouTube offers several quality levels for videos. The lower numbers (360p) indicate 
that the video is smaller and uses less bandwidth, but is also less detailed. The more
 detailed the video (480p, 720p, or 1080p), the more bandwidth it takes to stream. 
Choose the highest video quality that allows you to stream without repeated stops
 and starts.

Hulu (source: Hulu Help)

  • Recommended: at least 1.5 Mbps download
Hulu also offers several different quality levels for different connection speeds. 
Using the gear icon, you can tell Hulu to auto-select the best quality for your bandwidth.

Online Video Games

  • Recommended: a low ping (less than 100 ms)
For playing video games online, download and upload don't matter as much as ping, 
which measures how responsive your connection is. The lower the ping to servers and 
other players, the less lag you will have in your game. To lower ping, connect your 
computer to the router using ethernet instead of Wi-Fi, and avoid downloading/uploading 
files while playing games.

Spotify (source: Spotify FAQ)

  • Recommended (standard quality on web and desktop, high quality on mobile): 0.15 Mbps
The bandwidth requirements for Rdio are similar, though both services offer 
a low-quality option for slower mobile connections.
