    FF Member connection speeds.

    This thread contains a list of members internet connection speed for the purpose of determining who can host servers.
    For a game server the upload bandwidth is much more relevant than the download.

    I recommend Speakeasy's multi-location speed test server which seems to give accurate and consistent results.


    The list is sorted by upload speed (highest to lowest).

    * - indicates an active member willing to host games
    Code:
    High bandwidth
    Redbox        6775 /9450

    Same. Dave and I have the same service. However... even though we have the same provider (Qwest) we have different ISPs and it seems like I might get a bit faster speeds sometimes. I've had 1000 kbps upload often.

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    Took a test off each server listed to average them out. I don't think I'll be able to host anything, though I might set one up just for the hell of it one day. I was able to host a Q3 server with 4-5 people on it and wasn't too bad.

    Test 1:


    Test 2:


    Test 3:
