UPDATE: Read full review here
CenturyLink’s gigabit internet was installed yesterday and I have been deciding how I am going to go about reviewing how it impacts daily internet use.
Obviously, the first thing I did was perform a speed test at speedtest.net.
I noticed that different servers offered very different speeds. At this point in time, I think a gigabit connection cannot be accurately tested against most of the internet. Google supplies their own server in cooperation with speedtest.net in order to show near full gigabit speeds.
Update: New speed tests have shown that my connection is capable of 800mbps+ download and upload when hooked directly to the CenturyLink modem.
Anyway, here is one of the results I got. I will be doing a much more in-depth write-up in the very near future.
For now, let’s just say that the rest of the internet needs to catch up to me now.
