bandwidth shaped my guest wifi. try and do more than facebook on that, mofos!
I've been staying with my in-laws for a bit. At least the internet isn't too bad.
3G network on my iPhone 4S
AT&T UVerse - Upgrading to comcast/xfinity on monday
T-Mobile HSPA+ on My Nexus 4
I'm at my in-law's lake house. They don't seem to care about fast internet up here.
Fortunately I don't need it for too much, but my wife watching a video could slow it down pretty easily.
Soo, my cell data is faster than my home internet...
My cellphone ineternet is faster than my home internet
Upgraded to Comcast/Xfinity today and the speeds are alot better than Uverse's
While the test is running
Welcome to Australia, where the speeds are pretty much garbage.
5mb is line speed or whatever, all i actually download at is about 500kbps.
If any aussies know of FAST internet in sydney please fill me in
Your "download" speed is measured in megaBYTES were as your "line speed" is measured in megaBITS. a difference of 8 bits in a Byte.
Devided by 8 =
0.625 MBps or 625 KBps
Cable is the only high speed internet currently and it only coveres a very select area, speeds UPTO 100/2 or something like that. Its also a lot more expensive then ADSL, $100 for 500GB per month vs $60 unlimited with TPG. I would go with Telstra and not Optus if its available.
(Other than the NBN witch is slowly being rolled out)
Have a look at this map and check when you might be able to get NBN (Fibre to the Home) Speeds of 25/5, 100/40.
Home using wired. Sucks that i'm paying $60 a month and have a 120GB cap. Wish they had Google fiber in Canada.
My girlfriend wants me to move to Canada. Here in the states, even my phone has ~25-30 Mbps speeds and no cap, no throttling. The idea of having a data cap at home may be hard for me to wrap my head around.
Have they ever actually said anything about your cap? Warnings? Charges for overages?
From what I'm reading the US have strange internets as well. At least I see a lot of people from the US complaining about it.
120GB is quite a lot though, unless you are downloading tons of stuff and streaming HD movies 24/7.
120GB isn't remotely enough for me
I don't think that it's physically possible for me to dl 120gb in a month, rofl. Internet speed is so crap
i can go through that in a week
It's in the contract. A webpage pops up to notify you when you use 75% and 100% of your bandwidth. I use Rogers so the overage charges depend on which plan you have, they range from $5 to $2.50 per GB over your limit. Rogers is stupid and like to rip you off so... If you do end up moving to Canada I would highly recommend using TechSavvy. They have a min cap of 300GB with unlimited plans available. It's alot cheaper and they offer faster speeds for a lower price. My dad hates change so he refuses to switch, so i'm stuck with overpriced slow internet. Shaw is also pretty good if you're in the BC region.
