My home bandwidth speed…

I am on Cable Broadband from Starhub and amazingly the speed has been rather consistent. It’s expensive… but it’s fast and I like it.

Speedtest 21st June 08 Speedtest 21st June 08_2

My previous test was around 4 months ago and it too displayed an average of around 40000 kb/s download and 1650 kb/s upload.

I am on the 100 mb/s plan and pay around SGD$100 a month. We all know the shared and theoretical nature of the spec / bandwidth… and to have it consistent at 40 – 50 mb/s download is awesome!

Could this be the most disappointing turning point in Yahoo history… where the once online and media powerhouse is going downhill…

Since the rejection of Microsoft 40 over billion dollar bid to take over… key influencers and decision makers has left one by one, possibly as a sign of the disagreement with managements’ lack of leadership and direction for the company… Below are the few articles I read on the exodus from Yahoo… 

Yahoo natives abandoning ship from CNet

Tracking Former Yahoo Execs – Where Are They Now… from TechCrunch

Yahoo’s Executive Structure Crumbles: Lu, Garlinghouse and Makhijani To Leave from TechCrunch

It Gets Worse: Joshua Schachter Leaving Yahoo from TechCrunch

Am pretty sure the ‘Shark’ aka competitors like Microsoft, Google, AOL… are fiercely eyeing the recruitment of those talented people…

Stocks will tumble further… 🙂
