How fast is your internet connection?

Things always seem slow here- and I suppose that shouldn't be surprising. There are no landlines between here and the rest of the world. Our local ISP connects to the Outside via satellite - we have a wireless connection to them. It seems to me we're doing little better than dialup - except I don't wait for the modem to call in and connect

I'd be curious to see how the numbers compare from different locations around the continent if anyone would care to post their results.

I ran the test using the recommended server (Prince Rupert):
217 kb/s download
24 kb/s upload

Then ran it using a Seattle server:
216 kb/s download
22 kb/s upload
