Poll: How fast is your Internet connection?

— 2:36 PM on July 6, 2006

Our last poll examined your browsing habits, and today we're asking you just how fast you can get all those browser tabs loaded up. With some fiber-optic networks promising download speeds in excess of 100 Mbps, how fast have your geographical location and wallet allowed you to go? Do you live in a wooden shack in the middle of nowhere with an old 28.8 Kbps modem, or do you have your own personal OC-192 connection? Let us know:

How fast is your Internet connection's download speed?
2,057 people voted in our last poll, where we asked, "How many browser tabs and/or windows are you running right now?" At the time of voting, the majority of you (40%) had between two and five tabs or windows open. The second biggest group had 6-10 tabs/windows open (24%), and the third-biggest was made up of old-school, single-window browsers who made up 14% of the total. Among the minority, a surprising 5% had over 30 tabs or windows open, compared to 4% for 16-20 and 3% for 21-30.
