    Its supposed to be capped at 256k up 128 down.. So I guess I'm doing pretty well. It tested the same from here to dallas to here to england, so its clearly capped.

    because you are running an async service...usually you only get high upload speeds on fiber connections (T1/FiOS/OC connections). The average user doesnt send a whole lot of packets.

    too bad im at work, i cant use this with flash with our service here...id blow yall away.
