About the best i can get due to where i live but i ain't going to moan as its totaly unlimited and currently cost me £9.99 a month but will go upto £19.99 soon but still a good price.
California actually has ISP competition. I, for the most part do not.
Hardly. Choices are AT&T DSL (max 6mbps, which means you get 2mbps on a good day if it even works). or Comcast (great, but pricey and confusing).
My friend and I are starting an ISP but I am not supposed to talk about that (some NDA shit) so hopefully y'all will get competitive internet
So apparently my ISP now is offering 50mb down for very small increase in monthly cost. Unfortunately Ill be moving soon, so it won't be worth it.
Sure, go ahead, I've got a low security WEP-protected (hey, I want people to hack it) wireless router that's on a seperate VLAN as everything else throttled to 1Mbps.
set up honeypot and have some fun.
my speed on my 30/30mbit fibernet connection with my Asus RT-N56U router
so i can't wait to see when i get 40/40mbit on Sunday to see what my speed will be than
less then $20 unlimited, including 2x "tv boxes" with 90 channels
Here is another
Why you make us look bad
My internet is crying right now
No. No its not. Because mine is currently handling all the crying
Is it your only option ? it looks like your internet stuck at year 2000.. here is my HSPA+ speeds on my phone ..
is that from your work or something?
hey, there is brandon! in the middle!
Ya, other than crappy sattelite this is all that there is. I'm 20 miles from the nearest town with anything better. So basically I just gotta suck it. Most of the time its around 1.7 down and less than .5 up
Carhart or blue?
I dont believe that These tests are very accurate. I Always see in peoples results tab that they are " in the 76% highest speed in the nation" , or whatever. How can EVERYBODY be in the 76th% region?Aside of course from the people whose results are RIDICULOUSLY slow that is(in which case they should just cancel their service, and go with 56K).Also I'm CERTAINLY NOT getting these speeds.
Well maybe a little bit of light on how networks work might explain it. You're connecting and testing your speed to a server ~50 miles away, which means fewer hops and the fewer number of networks that the packets have to traverse to get to the server. As soon as you connect to something further away you're hit with the bottleneck and latencies of all the networks you have to hit to download something from any particular server. So I can do a speed test and get 24-30MBit, but in reality as soon as I leave Comcast's network, I get closer to 18MBit.
A better way to determine what your bandwidth is to choose a to a particular server would be to do a speed test closest to the server that you're actually connecting to, which could be several hundred miles away from you.
Example: Comcast's SpeedTest in Boston
Versus Comcast in Chicago
Versus Comcast in Miami.
Even within Comcast's own network, you can see how it slows down the further away you go.
Most indeededly. I sometimes test against Australia for the heck of it.
For added fun, and education, you can trace various servers and see where the holdup is.
Yes I work for a ISP as a Switch Tech and our group has the raw speed before it gets restricted VIA Vlan. I downloaded BF3, BL2, Arma2/OA, and killing floor all at the same time and it took 5 minutes LOL. Its a 100% fiber ATM and MPLS network
that is pretty awesome. now you just need to secretly pipe some of that bandwidth to your house
Technically I could pipe 100MBPS if I was in their coverage area but I am next county and they have not expanded there for the consumer market yet. They do power some businesses in my county that requested their service over charter and I am hoping with the next year we will have access.
Decided to do a test at work.
I wonder what the DL speed would be like if nobody else was using the connection . . . It spiked around 20Mbps right at the start of the test, but then immediately went down to around 8Mbps, and then slowly down from there to where it is in the screenshot. I'm sure they probably have some sort of throttling and/or QoS in effect as well.
