Internet Connection Information
Hamilton College has a 2000 Mbps (2Gbps) primary Internet connection and a 100 Mbps secondary internet connection (used only for redundancy) over high speed fiber optic lines provided by Time Warner. The Internet connection at Hamilton is a shared resource and is managed in a fashion to give priority to the academic/administrative mission of the college while providing student connectivity (residence halls and wireless) similar to a residential cable modem service.
If you are interested in testing your Internet connection speed, click on one of the links below. You should use the first link for best results.
If you are using the second link (speedtest.net), your fastest results should come from the Time Warner server in Syracuse NY. Ping times and download/upload speeds will decrease as you test with servers further away from Hamilton.
Note - Maximum download/upload speed via a wireless connection (and wired connections in residence halls) is capped at 30Mbps. Wireless speeds may vary based on the current strength of your wireless signal.
