Broadband Internet Access Speeds

By rage25a ·
Does anyone know what kind of Maximum Internet Access Speeds can be obtained from a user with cable Internet access and if there is ANY way at all those speeds could be augmented in anyway by a Web server in during file transfers?

Broadband Internet Access Speeds

My cable modem usually transfers data at around 250Kb/sec but I have seen it go as high as 350kb/sec. The total bandwidth is shared by all of the current users so data transfer rates will vary depending on how many people use the cable segment thatyou are on. I found a site that will test your speed

I'm not aware of ways to increase speed using a server but that doesn't mean that it can't be done. I know you can create multiple connections to the internet (if your ISP supports it) with multiple NICs so maybe you can do the same with cable modems.

No tweaks but FYI. I recently switched to Cable from DSL because it was so much faster. I installed a cable modem for someone and was getting data at 1900-2100kbps.
My DSL was @300kbps
My Cable @1000kbps
