Which Internet is faster?
Me and my friend just made a bet he says that T1 internet is faster than comcast when T1 only runs at 1.5mbps and comcast internet at runs 3.0mbps... Any buddy out there no the answer? TY
And tell us who is right please TY

T-1 is 1.5Mbps down AND 1.5Mbps up.
Comcast is 4Mbps down, but only 384kbps up.

Here in Washington state, I test out as the same as a T-1 line (approx. 1.54 megs) on downloads. But as Negative has stated my uploads speeds would be far lower. And this is Comcast Cable.

bah, as its been said uploads > * but what was missed is the fact that cable is a shared line, hence everyone in your node is using the same connection so if i decied to download 100gig of porn from 100 different sites, which i do quite often well then, everyone else in the node suffers as t1 is a leased line, well you can imagine
thank you and good night

1. How many terrabytes storage do you have ? 100 gigs X 100 sites = to big for me
so if i decied to download 100gig of porn from 100 different sites, which i do quite often
2. how long does that take to download ?
3. Are you blind ?

But i have 1 more question so like what does NODE=mean?
And for downloading would comcast be better if less people on smae node that is what i am thinking from that statement? not sure please correct if i am wrong

I love my comcast connection ...400kb/s downloads usually...50-10kb/s uploads on our CS server...
It suits my needs. Also depends on what you're looking for in your connection.

LOL, I could make you all jelous.
Here at work we have a MegaStream !
I actually run faster for uploads and downloads than most ISPs
