McAfee's Internet Connection Speedometer finds out how fast or slow your internet connection really is. I was trying this out last night at home and was shocked to find out that my SCV Max Online (cable) is only at 60 kbps - that's only slightly faster than a 56k modem! I do know that the speed for cable may be slow at times when there are a lot of users. For example, say your cable offers a maximum download speed of 2Mbps. In actual fact, you are sharing this bandwidth with other subscribers in your neighbourhood. So when there's a heavy usage in your area, the speed of the internet connection may be slower but 60 kbps only? This sucks!
