otoh (54) I'm really lucky to be in a FTTC area, so I got a considerable boost in my internet last year - in theory I get about 70MB. I don't usually see that speed since most sites can't keep up with it - but it does make big downloads pretty quick!

tangub (151) The massive file sizes of the hd videos and high res photo sets at 21Sextury where i've just about finished a month's membership got me to thinking that my 10MB adsl connection is no longer adequate so i've just switched internet provider and upgraded to a 40MB fibre connection within the last week or so.

jberryl69 (12) I actually have NO CLUE what my provider promises but testing it today using http://www.speedtest.net/ my ping between here and my provider is 19ms, download is 30.48 Mbps & upload at 12.27 Mbps.

But if I test between here and California, my ping is 120 ms, download under 10 Mbps and up load stayed about the same.

This can change on a min to min basis or day to day or month to month.

So what does it matter what your provider promises?

marcdc1 (163) Cable connection for me. I worry about US's future competitiveness with our increasing lag in broadband competitiveness.

turboshaft (24) Technically my Internet connection is supposed to go to 12 Mbps download--in my apartment, faster Internet speeds are available only if you buy a cable bundle, thanks AT&T!--but realistically it's more in the 8-10 Mbps range. Not a big difference, and it works for Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and other sites that benefit from a healthy connection.

Still, it's peanuts to what I've read about the recent beta testing of Google's insane 1 gigabit per second download ISP service Google Fiber (which I guess will complicate things if Google ever decides to make breakfast cereals).

That's like driving a Smart car with a tiny engine and no trunk and then being given a Rolls Royce with a V12 and massive amounts of luxury, and only for a slightly higher price. Right now such bullet train Internet speeds aren't really practical for anything but it sounds like a good development for the future of online entertainment (and the possible death of cable TV?).

I have a 30mb connection 50 and 100 are here at a premium. But 30 is plenty fast for me. I have a very nice wireless router I got last year top of the line and handles anything I throw at it. I do wish I could get 50mb DLS the say they have but they have 1.5 in my area and thats it DSL is not much faster then when I used ti multi-link dial up modems.

lk2fireone (194) I recently upgraded (paid more) for my Internet connection.
Using the link jberryl69 provided, the results are:
http://www.speedtest.net/

Ping: 25 ms
Download speed: 17.40 Mbps
Upload speed: 1.39 Mbps

But I'm guessing that 17.40 Mbps equals 2.175 MB/sec, which is approximately what my PC reports when downloading files from the Internet.

lk2fireone (194) I use a different URL to test my computer, and the results seem different:

http://www.dslextreme.com/support/speedtest

Latency: 17 ms
(as far as I can tell, Ping and Latency are interchangeable terms. But maybe on a technical level there might be differences in the two terms).

Download speed: 8634 Kb/s

Upload speed: 1303 Kb/s

Drooler (218) Good question, and if you can tolerate being lied to, just ask my ISP.

lk2fireone (194) I'm wondering how many poll respondents are differentiating between MB and Mb.

1 MB = 8 Mbit

The poll asks for MB speed.

I upgraded to 17.40 Mbps recently, which is 2.175 MB/sec.

Most of the poll replies are in the 11-30 MB/sec range, which seems very high to me.

slutty (111) REPLY TO #11 - lk2fireone :

I sort of assumed the poll question intended to ask it in Mbps, although I'm sure it exists, I can't imagine any normal consumer has a connection speed of 400 or more Mbps.

RustyJ (145) Over 100M down meaning 12-13 megabytes per second at best times but maybe a tenth of that up.

pat362 (367) I have ultra high speed cable internet and I get about 31Mbps. Mind you I don't know if this is all the time because I rarely check my speed. I'm also about to get an increase of an extra 20G of allowed download per month which will put my total to 150G of allowed download per month. Maybe now I will be less choosy when I look for stuff to download and I won't mind downloading a few HD scenes.

oldfizzywig (8) Like Jberryl69's comments, I too have no clue as to what I am supposed to have. Suffice to say that usually I can watch HD videos on youtube with no problem, but I notice that in the evening, prime time, the speed is slower, and yt can not provide streaming video without pausing.

So next I tried the link that like2fireone suggested, and I found that its speed test shows 9043Kb/s download, 783 Kb/s upload and 38ms latencey.

But that was in the middle of the day, I bet it goes to hell at 7pm. And I bet it would be even better at 4 in the morning.

I would gladly trade 10% of my download speed for a doubling of my upload, as I try to post video to YT, and it can be very frustrating to have what I think of as a 10 minute (HD) video take 2 or more hours to upload.

OFW, I never have problems with viewing, playing games, etc. regardless of the time of day - I mean I've had the occasional disconnect and once a truncated cable access since our connection is at the end of the line but generally there are no viewing or playing problems. My comment was just a statement about what was revealed by my test program. Like I said, that can change from min to min but does not necessarily reflect my access experience.

I have never tried though to upload anything.

PinkPanther (46) I just got a new modem and higher speed from Comcast. I had to chat with one of their techies and let him rummage around in my system to make some adjustments to get the maximum benefit. I'm glad that I did because my connection is much more stable than it was before and I get download speeds faster than 6 mb/second on some sites.

Ambition (15) 16MB and happy with it, most servers can't even handle that much speed anyway.
