Answer: 523.96 Mbps down, 147.20 up, and a 3 milisecond ping - according to SpeedTest.net. Comparatively, using the same test, our seemingly speedy connection here at Government Technology is 38.60 Mbps down, 8.62 up, and a 19 milisecond ping. According to data compiled recently by Google Labs, the average U.S. download speed is 4.79 Mbps.
