Morning Hangover: How Fast Is Your Internet Connection?

OnLive Getting Wi-Fi Support, Half-Off Labor Day Sale

So last night I brought OnLive, the cloud-computing mini-console that allows you to play streamed PC games from your TV, home from work to test out. It's tiny, slick and easy to set up. The only problem with it is, for me, it doesn't work. Like at all. Turns out my internet is too slow to run OnLive.

I'm not a dial-up hold-out, either. I have a fiber optic internet from AT&T, and I pay for the second-tier in service. That means I run at roughly 3 Mbps. This is fast enough to stream movies in high-def from Netflix, as well as download anything I'd like at as fast a clip as I need. But it's not fast enough for OnLive. The gaming mini-console requires at least 3 Mbps to work, and based on the speed test I ran, my internet is at about 2.88 Mbps. So no cloud gaming for me. Very sad.

How fast is your internet?
