NE Colorado Springs, 22/month. Centurylink.

This DSL?

I recommend Comcast cable internet if it's available.

Yeah. DSL

Been, done Comcast. Nein, danke. 22 dollars a month fer CL: streaming and SD with wifi no problems. Two tablets, three smart phones,
two laptops, desktop all in good order.

Hmm. CenturyLink DSL up here sucks and it cost more when I had it. It was always going out. Glad you're having better luck.

44 ms ping

85 down and 11 up. We pay for faster service, however.

ping 2 ms

111.94 Mbps down

102.99 Mbps up

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Are you running a server? What do you pay for that?

I go to Uni...so it is my school server.

I frankly think it lies.

Campus wifi

Wireless has a wired backbone. Given those speeds, I'd guess your campus is running fiber as backbone and 802.11n wifi for end-user delivery.

Some good times in the UK and Eire Greg and Prayerful. Well better than my Sky freebie package at about 4mbps. But it is fine for what I do which is emails and a bit of browsing I also do lots of bittorrent downloading however I only do it 1am to 7am and set the download limit to 100kbps to keep everyone happy. So speed is not that important for me, but unlimited and the cost is.

I suppose if you have a lot of people in your home using the internet then you need a fast connection especially if they are gaming or streaming video. Low ping rates are really only important if you are playing online games and are looking for that split second advantage.

One thing to be aware of is that many ISPs detect you performing a speed test and prioritise you so you achieved something like the results you expect.

I actually get much faster internet with my 4G phone than my landline. I get 10Gb data a month for £22. There are better deals out there for this price with unlimited data (fair use policy applies). When I lived alone I got rid of my landline and setup a hotspot on my phone which saved me a lot over the year. It is worth considering with mobile phone deals improving and speeds getting faster. Especially with 5G on the horizon. That's why companies like British Telecom are looking to get back into owning a mobile phone company.
How will need a land line in the future?

I know that. Speed-test.net can be gamed by them, but it is meant to be 250mb d/l 25 upload. The only reliable speed test is downloading something. I'm getting the Fallout IV season pass. I'll see how that goes.

At the weekend around 8pm I download a 700mb AVI ( 2 hour movie ) from stagevu.  Took over 30 mins.

Yesterday downloaded 4 more movies at 9pm. Took under 1 min each.  In fact, it took a few seconds longer to copy them to a USB memory stick so I could plug them into a large TV set.  Must be USB 1 as computer is late 2009, iMac.

That's the fastest I have ever download a 600-700mb movie.

Guess the difference is down to America being home at the weekend and downloading stuff as opposed to at work on a Tuesday afternoon.

Time Warner 300/20 - $75

76Mb down / 24Mb up 16ms ping

I'm on WIFI currently. When connected on LAN the download speed varied from 150Mb to 250Mb+.

I would be fine with 100/20 if they offered it or even 100/100. Upload is important to me as a at home IT professional.

AT&T U-Verse 70$/month, it's their highest tier. I got it because they don't enforce their data caps. I can get 2Gbps from Comcast if I wanted, but it is 300$ a month with a 1000$ installation fee.

I work in IT, so having a fast connection is important for me.
