Having some on going issues with my provider not getting anywhere near what i signed up for.
From what i have read some nations invest large sums of tax payers money to make sure there city suburbs and rural areas have at least a decent speed not the case in my country.
So what speed are you guys getting and do you live in a city suburb or rural.

1.2 thingummies on a good day, though shiny new cabinet just installed outside the village promises better things to come when enabled, though we will still be on exposed post copper wire from there so expect no more than 20 thingummies at best. Joys of rural life.

11ms, 74.27Mbps down, 18.95Mbps up. (headline 72Mbps down)

BT Fibre, cabinet well within 100m. While I have no doubt about the speed they provide (large downloads complete in times appropriate to the claimed speeds) I do notice that the response to page requests is often quite poor (but I suspect this is at least partially AV/OS/Browser clashes, rather than the ISP).

For 'below par' performance, there are two possible things I'd consider, one is that contention for low cost supply is often much higher than for the premium supplies - and at peak times this can significantly suppress the attained maximum and even averages... the other is that if you connect to your router via wifi, that a small position change in either the served equipment or the repeater can transform signal strength and effective speed. (A few inches is the required change in location often).

10 down/1 up ...when its working. Then again I live 5 miles south of a 2 stop light town in the Appalachian mountains. We could pay for "up to" 20 down/ 2 up but our ISP frequently can't meet 10/1 standards so I see no reason to pay more for speeds they can't consistently deliver.

My in-laws can't even get satellite internet so have to settle for 56K dial up.


The road less traveled is filled with fewer needy people.

I live in a rural area as well. My only real option is a wireless provider. The real sad part is i pay $150+ tax a month. My limit is 400GB.
The Canadian government recently declared Broadband necessary for quality of life. Speeds of a min 50GB down. They have dedicated $750 Mil to the project. Target for all of Canada is 5 yrs. So there is at least hope.

I think something like 80% of the Canadian population lives within 100 miles of the US/Canadian border? I can't see too many broadband users in the NW Territory or Yukon. biggrin

Better than promised 100 down, 10 up. It should be, they just hit me with a 20% plus rate increase.

20 down, 1.5 up....but right now we're stressing our poor router with all the junk connected to it and demanding bandwith.

I pay 110 a month for this service and I am data capped and it goes out very frequently. They have a monopoly in my area though. Service gets worse. Bandwidth gets worse. Price goes up. #%&*$# Comcast

Based on these posts I see why I make a good host for Falcon 4. My upload is actually faster than my download. I don't pretend to know why... but why? Why is my upload so much faster than the other results posted here?

Nope, no BS.

Costs a pretty penny too, but I do not have cable TV or VOIP phone, so it balances out.
