This is somewhat random (for me) but i've just been involved in a chat with a friend of mine (we normally discuss lots of random and unrelated stuff, have since we met each other 8 years ago) and the subject of internet connections came up, the speed of them...

So, I ran mine through Speed test. The result was:

Downlink: 22399 Kb/s
Uplink: 624 Kb/s

I'm on an Assymetric connection, so the Uplink is always slow.

However, on the upside, i'm edging close to 3 MegaBYTES (not bits) per second on the downlink. I regularly download at 2.5 MB/sec, so this is not too surprising - being close to the exchange (it's a DSL line) probably helps lots though.

So, which category does your internet connection fit into? And what speed is it? Also, is it reliable?

It's standard, supposedly, but I don't get the best performance from it. Probably because of the number of people in my vicinity who use Comcast >.<

I'm on a 768/128 kbit DSL connection, but it should very soon be approximately 3072/768. So.... no appropriate poll option for me to pick.

Yay!



I'll pick the 2mb poll option because it's the closest to my speed.

Mazza: You're capped to that amount per month? I didn't realise some ISPs still did that, my connection has no restrictions.

Yeah, they do. From what I hear, it's very common in Australia. :eek:

Have you considered TPG? 150GB per month for $69.96 at ADSL2+ speeds :)

I'm on 768/128kbit, too, but it's not so bad. I can watch most youtube videos without having to wait too long to start them, and everything else (chatting, online-gaming, etc) goes rather smooth. More would be nice, of course (especially because I work alot with computers, so it's nice to have a bigger upstream than 16 Kilobyte), but it's not available where I live and I don't plan to move out yet :)

I think I got about 1.5 both ways last time I tried speed test. Supposed to be double that.

Are you kidding me I've only got 1mb if I'm lucky, or if I'm downloading something direct from a filesite, and I load youtube videos at the speed I can watch them if I am only loading one.
