    Around here you have 3 speed packages from road runner and none of them have max gb caps, it's however much you can download,but they slow down HOME uploads during business hours..BLAH gaming sucks till 5p.m. then it's only slightly better till about 8p.m. then it's balls to the walls

    I wish I had a better upload speed, 20Mb down is sweet but only 1.5Mb up wtf. Customer service sucks balls, and they say it's unlimited use with a "fair use" policy which is nowhere to be found on their website, only way to know what their usage is to download hundreds of gigs which I did being on 20Mb. Their monthly limit is 250GB which they says is fair, despite the fact I can download that much in 1 day at this speed, fair is being allowed use the speed you pay for as much as you like. Why offer 20Mb when you don't let people use it?

    In fact, instead of saying Unlimited why not just say 250GB? it's not unlimited if it's got a fair use policy on it.

    Frontier was going to implement a 5GB monthly cap- even at the slow speeds they offer that cap is ridiculous. Its no more than Cell Providers offer on their wireless which is also faster. They ended up not going through with it and rightfully so. This is what you get when there is no competition.

    Real world usage
    Web pages:
    On same continent @ ~5 Mbyte/sec​
    On other continent @ 3,2 Mbyte/sec​
    Torrents:
    Average 6,8 Mbytes/sec​
    Good days 9,2 Mbytes/sec​
    Rare/Best:~12 Mbyte/sec (that's about 96Mbit)​

    The speeds above 50Mbit are generated by local traffic. Much of the country is covered by optic fiber internet leading literally right to the doorstep (FTTH). Local speed is regulated by traffic intensity and/or ISP equipment limitations rather than artificially.

    Edit:
    In case you're wondering, we have such high quallity & cheap internet because:
    1. Competition is fierce here. We have 4 major internet providers + dozens of others that also have a solid slice of the market.
    2. Compact urban areas are relatively close one to the other.
    3. Favorable location (close to a major european internet artery).
    4. The no. of internet users grew 840+% in the 2000-2008 period stimulating the creation of a new modern infrastructure.

    Here's another test from a different Romanian ISP. This is the result from a friend of mine:
    [​IMG]
    2Mbit Up/Down (international)
    100Mbit Up/Down (country)
    No caps, Wired
    40RON=~13US$=~9Euro

    These are both average home connections here not university/corporate/work/etc.

    I don't trust Speedtest.net at all.

    I have a 100/10 connection (download/upload).

    The fastest speed I've ever been able to download in, ever, is @ 10.4Mb/s (which is like 83~mbit).
    The fastest upload I've ever reached is @ 1.8Mb/s (14~mbit/s).

    So I should have about 83/14 mbit, yet speedtest.net tells me that I have 62/43 (on a more recent test which I didn't save I got about 65/45). :p

    Try a torrent download from many local peers (example... latest Ubuntu iso is seeded perfectly) that should show you your absolute max download.

    Running CfosSpeed I always get super low pings time, usually 0 for the speedtest.

    No it isn't. Dial-up is .06 MAX.

    Here's mine. Considering I pay for 6Mb/768Kb, I'm not complaining too much. I still want Fios to get here tho.
