Some of the information in the chart below was found on the
Internet, but most is from my personal experience or from
message threads where people from around the world (not just
RVers) were reporting their speeds with the program
An interesting note to traveling RVers... the highest
speed I've seen is the wi-fi connection at the Lazy L RV
Park in North Texas. I'm hoping other RVers will test
their speeds and contribute to this informal "study".
Click your country or state, then click the golden pyramid
that represents the test location nearest you. Then
just wait for the test to run.
The Speedtest software will attempt to determine the
"test site server" nearest you. If Speedtest doesn't
have a test site near you, or the nearest one is down, it
may suggest a site hundreds of miles away, but you don't
have to use that one. You can choose one of the other
pyramids (black instead of golden) and perhaps get better
Your Speed Test Result
When the test is completed, your speed will be displayed in
a digital style readout under the title "Your Speed Test
(If the result seems too low, run the test two or three
times, to make sure your test isn't altered by a temporary
Share Your Results
Under the title "Share Your Results", is a box with the html
code for three different options.
The first line of

Click the "Copy"

have your results included in the next revision ofthe table, copy the code for "Hyperlink", paste it
into an email message, include your equipment, your
location*, and a "nickname" to identify youself, and send it
to the email address below:
Your "Location" for purposes of the results to be included
in the table below, is the
physical location of your
computer at the time of the
test. If you are at home, just give the town, but if
you are on the road, a more definite location will be useful
to your fellow travelers, especially if you have found a
location with particularly good Internet access.

Using my EVDO RevA/Verizon modem (From the same location and
using the SF server ( for some reason an LA server was
recommended)) I got this result: 290 kb/s download; upload

I must say that this is not typical of the results I
_usually_ get ... In this area, I'm generally able to get a
true "Broadband Access" connection. It may be time of day
locally) and or some other effect that's not typical.
I'll give this test a try tomorrow at a different time of
day, and see what happens.
None-the-less, very interesting.
Note: Since I have cable modem access -- which appears to be
pretty decent compared to other results in your charg -- I
don't normally use the Verizon EVDO while at home.
FWIW -- all tests performed using Mac computers.
It kept insisting I was in Scottsdale, AZ not Portland
Oregon, so was testing with a Phoenix server.
