Several speed reports were performed on http://www.csc.ncsu.edu/. Here are the download times* results:
- At 56K; Download Time: 59 seconds
- At ISDN 128K; Download Time: 18 seconds
- At T1 1.44Mbps; Download Time: 1.7 seconds
*These download times are based on the full connection rate for ISDN and T1 connections. Modem connections (56Kbps or less) are corrected by a packet loss factor of 0.7. All download times include delays due to round-trip latency with an average of 0.2 seconds per object. With 15 total objects for the http://www.csc.ncsu.edu page, that computes to a total lag time due to latency of 3 seconds. Note also that this download time calculation does not take into account delays due to XHTML parsing and rendering.
