lk2fireone (196) With my last upgrade, I can now download at 1.3 MB/sec. That is much faster than what I previously had. Although I realize that many PU members apparently have connections that make my speed seem slow. :)

Toadsith (48) Time Warner Road Runner Turbo. I've hit speeds of nearly 2 MB/sec. The fastest I've personally ever experienced was at a friend's place who had Verizon FIOS - there my rig hit 8 MB/sec dloads.

Monahan (44) REPLY TO #2 - Toadsith :

I, too, have Time Warner cable modem access. The problem is that when several users in my area are downloading, my speed drops drastically.

The fastest I recall seeing is about 1.2 Mbps but normal is between 400 and 500 Kbps.

Capn (28) These days I am spoilt really.
My ISP claims up to 40Mbps.
I regularly see over 34-35, so they ain't exaggerating much. ;0)

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #3 - Monahan :

Yeah, sometimes Time Warner doesn't put in enough connections which can be quite annoying. It is the reason I used DSL with its guaranteed download speeds back when broadband connections were new. I'm in a very rural area, so usage is pretty low making the cable connection far superior to other options.

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #4 - Capn :

So that's like 4.4 MB/s? Not bad at all! :-) (Why do ISPs always list speeds in Megabits when everybody else uses Megabytes? I guess they like the bigger number...)

exotics4me (463) I have Charter. The speed I pay for is 30 MB/s and when I test it on speedtest.net, I get between 20 MB/s to 32 MB/s depending on which server I connect to.

On sites that I download from, I have been maxing out at 2-2.5 MB/s. I'm happy with that. I still remember the days of loading up 10 Eve Angel photo zipsets and letting my dial-up access run all night just to download 10 photo sets. I do think Charter is advertising a 100 MB/s connection, but it's $110 per month.

exotics4me (463) REPLY TO #6 - Toadsith :

You may have just nailed what I thought was a problem. I was thinking Charter advertises 30 MB/s, but it may be 30 Mbps and they're not ripping me off when I download only at 2.5 MB/s.

I suppose so.....

It is to ensure people remain baffled, I think.

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #2 - Toadsith :

I've heard that Verizon's FIOS has some of the fastest speeds available from the big ISPs, unfortunately their top speeds are not available everywhere and usually require the purchase of some sort of bundle (web+TV+phone).

I have AT&T's U-Verse with their 2nd fastest tier--the top one requires you to buy a cable package--and have to say it's met my needs. HD streaming, big downloads, and connectivity have always worked for me. At this point I'd probably be more pissed if my Internet connection went down before my other utilities.

Toadsith (48) REPLY TO #10 - turboshaft :

A lot of times if you play hard-ball and refuse to purchase the packaged deals, the company's sales person will be able to get you the high speed connections outside of the bundle. It is annoying, but sometimes one still has to bargain for a better price.

gaypornolover (38) Reasonably fast, though I'd love it to be even faster! I'm satisfied though.

Doctor Blues (0) My ISP is ATT, they cap my neighborhood at 313kps and via download managers it sometimes races up to a *glorious* 425 for about 10 seconds. Even with DL managers it can creep down to 250, and without them sometimes it is stuck at 165 k.

RustyJ (145) I guess very fast would describe it. So much that the hd space is more limiting issue when it comes to collecting stuff.

graymane (33) I'm on Cox Cable, and I don't suppose I have too many things about them to complain about.
If the current speed isn't what it ought to be, it'll likely be all the trash that's built up over time.
Sure do beat earlier Modem-Dial-up, though.

BadMrFrosty (56) My connection is 100 mbps which means I should be able to download stuff at ~12 MB/s. That I would rate as very fast however your connection is only any good if the site you are downloading from and all the bits between you and them can as well give you that speed.

Lionheart (47) 2-4 MB second. Not the fastest I have seen, but good enough for me.

tangub (155) My connection speed is about 7 mbps which I'm quite happy with for what I pay, less than £10 per month. My connection downloads picture zips faster than I can unzip and view them so don't really see the point of paying for a faster connection at the moment.

lk2fireone (196) REPLY TO #18 - tangub :

Here's a case of regional pricing in reverse. From the price you quote for a download speed of 7 mbps, it seems England (and the rest of Europe?) has lower prices for ISPs than the United States. At least what is available to me in southern California.

tangub (155) REPLY TO #19 - lk2fireone :

There does seem to be plenty of competition in the isp market here which I guess is good for consumers. I've been with the same isp for several years now and also get unlimited bandwidth for my £9.50 per month which includes a £5 a month reduction because I also have my cell phone from the same provider. I believe the unlimited deal i'm on is not available to new customers so if I upgrade my line speed or move house my current deal would end and i'd have to pay more so i'm happy to stick for now.

dracken (246) Mine caps at around 2 mb, which is pretty standard for the Midwest comcast connection I have.

When I lived in Europe I'd sometimes get 6-8 no problem. Those were good days.
