Has Globelines broadband finally recovered?

While writing the 2nd meme tag I got from Kars, I was forced to restart my dsl modem because of the crappy connection that was so crappy it would die for a few minutes. Surprisingly, the write post page loaded in just under 15 seconds! Has the connections improved?

There was only one way to find out; the Speakeasy Speedtest. Amazingly, here are the results:

improved connection

Another test, this time from a server in Seattle, Washington.

Is it true? Am I just seeing things? Or this improvement in the connection just a spurt of the moment and it would go back to its crappy, slower-than-dial-up state?

Turning to another connection speed test site, Speedtest.net (which is closely related to Speakeasy.net) here are the results I got:

So good to be true and something all of us have been waiting for. For a few final tests, I opened up the few sites I know of to be bandwidth-intensive, Inquirer.net.

Not only did it loaded in just under 12 seconds, it carried this news story that’s worth rejoicing for; RP ISPs recovering from slow Internet. Let’s just hope that this improvement would just go on and on.

For the final test, I’m off to YoutTube! đŸ˜€

As a side note

Modern day mobile phones include advanced features to replace digital camera and GPS devices. Such features facilitate user and make it easy to interact with cell device. Cell phones now have pda keyboard like large keypad for easy text input. Connectivity features are also increasing as network technology grows. Like, Bluetooth support allows you to attach your verizon cell phone and other devices with network printer without cables.
