No problems in Schaumburg. I ran a Speedtest.net:
There are several 'Chicago' entries with different hosts. I also tried the Chicago one that says 'Hosted by Comcast', and it was basically the same.
You can try running the Visualware tests. They have more than the basic speed tests:
You will need Java installed and active (If you use Firefox, you may need to go into Tools/Add-Ons, then the Plugins tab to enable it, as the latest 7u11 is auto-disabled due to bugs.)
Click on the USA
Click on the YELLOW pushpin for Chicago (hover mouse over pushpin to see where it is)
This will open the standard speed test (red/blue)
You can run that test and view some of the information.
On the right-side, there are additional tests. You may want to try the Quality test (yellow/green), which keeps track of retries, lost packets, etc...Edited by andyross63 - 1/27/13 at 6:25am
