All I can say is wow
Damn! That is crazy fast. I need the fiber to get through the cow-methane first.
Here is my home connection speed.
oh my god, what a speed, it's a shame to post mine here.. i'm very confused
I'm extremely jealous. They're busy laying fibre in our area at the moment so hopefully I can join your club soon.
This is what I have to put up with at the moment:
I think dinosaurs were faster than my current connection.
Taken using my s6 mobile on the wifi connection
They just finished doing that up here in our country town. The country is being done 1'st before the city.
The telco who setup and installed the NBN (national broadband network), in a lot of cases (including ours), has only run fiber to the street node. It's copper phone line from there to homes. That node is at most 100meters from our place.
A few years ago, was going to pay to have fiber from the exchange (1km away - as the lines go), to my place. But they wanted $10K to do it. Will ask again, and see if I can pay to have fiber run from the node to our house. The speed is present BUT running on copper is always going to give fluctuating speed and be a tad unstable.
I've been on fiber for a few years now. It's coax from the street.
The Verizon quantum packages go from 50/50 up to 500/500 Mbps.
I have the 50/50 and have these numbers.
58 DN/51 UP with Verizon's test.
57 DN/23 UP with Ookla's test.
The highest speed on offer out here, right now, is 100/50 Mbps but that's theoritical. So my 91/38 Mbps, is actually above what most get.
To use Steam as a reference... Previously on ADSL2+:
Download was 1.5MB/sec.
Now it's 11.5MB/sec
Nothing worse than wanting to play a game, then have to wait up to 3 hours for a 4gig update to download
Now that wait is drastically reduced
When I upgraded from 25/25 a couple years ago I immediately noticed how much faster my web sites were uploaded. Didn't really notice any web sites downloading faster. I never tried downloading anything big like a casino or game though.
The upload benefit will greatly increase my productivity.
The worse (slowest) upload is to the UK. On ADSL2+ (running M annex), the best I could acheive was 11kb/sec. That's to a high end dedi server.
Currently have a high end VPS in the US located in LA.
Previous upload was 100kb/sec, was ok but still snail pace compared to AU (was getting close to 160Kb/sec). However now, it's flying.
Living rurally here in NZ (but close to telecom cabinet) so we just have basic copper line ADSL
Upload speed is slow - but download is OK and supports HD quality streaming.
I can't say that I need anything faster at present.
That's not bad DL speed for living in the boonies actually the internet is the main reason why I do not, however I have located a good satellite company that gives a decent speed up and down and most importantly unlimited
We live quite far from normal civilization, so I won't be posting our speeds.
Your speed is too fast or too slow? Guess it's very fast
yes, that is good speed. Verizon has been popping up upgrade ads for 75/75 on my tv lately.
well, i'm jelly here
I'm really looking forward to the national broadband network coming to my area
I understand you perfectly my friend, welcome!
I have had 25 mbs adsl the last few years, but last year I moved to a new house and got 300 mbs fiber installed. No big practical difference to be honest, but it is nice to not think about speed as an issue at all.
Just tested on my ipad and got 26ms ping and 228 mb download speed, while streaming in HD on the telly at the same time. I didn't even know ipads had gigabit wifi...
At my office I have 25 mbs adsl, which is more than fast enough for my daily chores.
