Re: How fast is your internet speed?

Hmm. I checked this because everything has been loading verrrrryyyyy slow lately. But based on the results (during the slowness) it would appear that it's not just my ISP. I guess I need to clean out some crap on my computer.

Looking at all these speed is making me depress. My Sprint LTE is faster than my DSL.

I am using 5 Mbps connection and my browsers are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
My Internet Speed test results are
Download Speed:4.031Mbps(0.25MBps)
Upload Speed :1.854Mbps(0.11MBps)
I got these accurate results from Scanmyspeed.com in normal scan.

Re: How fast is your internet speed?



$31/month (100gb cap). I used to pay $45 with Videotron for the same thing with 60gb cap... It's fine for my needs since I only have Netflix eating cap and I usually end up using 75-80gb/month. I can bump it up to 250gb for $5 more if I ever need it. My goal was to get my internet/tv/phone bill under $100/month and I achieved that.

Are all of you with your 50+ Mbit connections enjoying your torrents, porn, and / or your $100+ monthly ISP charges?

Just signed up for the new AT&T Gigabit in my neighborhood. Systems are running a wee bit faster now. Right now it's only up to 300 Mbps, but in March they'll have 1 Gps available, and I get a free upgrade to that speed.

don't use it for any of that and pay $147 total for internet, phone and cable with premium channel package.

Re: How fast is your internet speed?

We're screwed in San Diego, either Time warner or U-verse, heard rumors that a 32 mbit tier is available, but very limited, certainly more than $77 / month. I'm still stuck at 10/1 for $50 / month. No cable, no phone included in that price.

No way we're getting gigabit or anywhere near it anytime soon, unfortunately. The area is too big... I'm insanely jealous of you who live in Austin.

I assume you're with neither Bell nor Rogers. Both utter shit corporations, needless to say, but for TV we have no other option around here. They have virtual monopolies on TV, unless one wants to go with a FTA satellite dish and watch only a few local channels (which I'll do when I've finally had my fill of the shysterism).

Via Wireless. I'll do the one connected directly to my PC.

Got a new router/modem (from PC connected via Ethernet):
