This bandwidth testing web site:

http://speedtest.att.com/speedtest/

is measuring speeds of about 350 Mbps on the ops floor.

This web site:

http://beta.speedtest.net/run/

is measuring even faster speeds, when using the Washington, DC Speedtest.net server (on machines that can load it).

Doug has warned me that it may take 24 hours or so for the modified routing tables to propagate to all our network equipment. Also, local intermediate hardware (hubs) may need to be power-cycled.
