Four computers (All with Windows XP) with cable modems were used in the testing. All four PCs used Internet Explorer 6.0. All four people were at different test locations, one in the Michigan, USA, one in London, England, one in Dallas, Texas, and the last one in Albany, New York, USA. We chose to download a demo exe file from a server in the United States. Each PC downloaded the same exe file 10 times, first with set to the Cable/DSL preset. The testers were asked to remove the settings from their PCs and download the identical file 10 times. These results were tallied. As a final test to determine if the test server was consistent, the testers were asked to set their PCs with the back to the Cable/DSL preset. The results proved to be consistent with the first round of testing. What this means to the user with a cable modem, gave the testers the additional speed of 56k modems to their connection! The download speed of one computer alone showed the results alone!
A notable consistency in download speed was seen throughout testing. The Before tests on the 33K modems saw download times between 67 and 103 seconds for the Text file. After tests showed a rock solid consistency of 62 to 69 seconds from all 25 downloads! The Graphic download showed the same scenario, times for the Before tests saw downloads fall between 76 and 111 seconds, while the After tests maintained a 72 to 77 second download time for all 25 downloads! The ISDN modems had the same reflection as the 33K modems.
