What's the fastest download speed you've ever had? I had 16 mb/s a few weeks ago, which is nuts because I remember a time when 3 kb/s was fast.

#2 Posted by Elazul (1327 posts) -

I seem to be getting 8-10 mb/s at the moment, which oddly enough is close to double what I was getting with the same ISP about 6-8 months ago. I ain't complaining.

I'd hate to be a dick, guys, but for the love of God, use proper capitalisation. It's not difficult to understand you're talking about megabits(Mb), although that range of throughput in megabytes(MB) is naturally completely possible with a decent fibre or cable connection, but if I were prone to taking things entirely too literally I'd wonder how you could browse the internet on a 10 millibit connection.

Around 16Mbps for me, that is to say around 2MB/s download speed.

#4 Posted by amir90 (2134 posts) -

2.8MB/s

#5 Posted by Neurotic (631 posts) -

I hit 4MB/s the other day but that was a freak occurance. I usually get around 2MB/s.

#6 Posted by CannonGoose (371 posts) -

515kB/s

Goooooo Australia!

So the US gets phenomenal speeds across the board?

I'm on Virgin's 30MB (second only to their 50MB line currently), and top out at 3MB/s.

Wish I lived in the states...

#8 Posted by BR00KSIE (42 posts) -

2.3MB/s. Currently with O2.

#9 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4905 posts) -

4MB/s

#10 Posted by ShadowSkill11 (1777 posts) -

SInce I've been stuck her on base in Kuwait I haven't been above around 5.0 MB/s. When I was at home in Washington my speeds topped out around 6.5 MB/s.

Would any of you care to lend me your internet. :(

#12 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

I went to Sweden to visit a friend, his internet was insane.  
 
But my own speed is only like 40Mbit down and 40Mbit up.. Damn you Sweden

#13 Edited by phrosnite (3517 posts) -

Constant 2.8 but max I've seen it go to 3.8MB/s

No. Not Mbit, there is a difference.

I thought everyone knew the difference. 
 
On that note, I would fucking love to download with 30 megabytes a per second o.O

Well, we did invent the internet after all and we own the backbone servers. Our speeds should be even faster but it has been taking ISP's a while to finally modernize their copper to fiber. Some people are still using DSL to Cable, instead of Fiber.

#16 Posted by guiseppe (2833 posts) -

2.1 MB/s. It's usually around 1.2 MB/s though.

#17 Posted by Morrow (1828 posts) -

When I get something above 200 KB/s I'm happy.

#18 Posted by FritzDude (2216 posts) -

24.51Mbit/s

  • 3.06MB/s
  • 183.83 MB/m
#19 Posted by Blackmoore (254 posts) -

When I'm at school and on their fibre networks, I can get around 12 MB/s down and 8 MB/s up. When at home, I get 1 Mb/s down and 0.04 Mb/s up.

#20 Posted by Cloudenvy (5890 posts) -

Around 4-5 MB/s.

#21 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1522 posts) -

12.4MB/s according to Steam.

#22 Posted by kindgineer (2486 posts) -

Depends on where I download, but I usually get 3.9mb/s or 4.1mb/s from a reliable source. Around 700kb/s - 1,400kb/s for uploads as well. Comcast likes to throttle me though when my 3.9-4.1mb/s is on for too long.

Lol no, the Americans are living the dark ages when it comes to internet.

I'm currently on 40 up 10 down. And I get 4.5MB/s on steam when the servers aren't playing up.

Yeah, tell me about it. Virgin is actually fibre-optic, and there's been a big advertising campaign recently about their push into better speeds - may be a few months off yet.

I think the upgrade we're getting is looking like it's going to be 60MB, which should put us more in line with you lot across the pond.

#25 Edited by Moncole (636 posts) -

1 MB when I download from Steam. I remember I used to get around 400 kb :(

#26 Edited by Panpipe (471 posts) -

2-3 MB/s here in the UK.

EDIT: This should be a poll surely?

#27 Posted by LinkinMedo (56 posts) -

2.4MB/s and i have the fastest connection of all my friends !!

#28 Posted by Village_Guy (2409 posts) -

I'm currently getting a 80 KB/S on steam and that is the peak of it... My internet have been acting strangely slow the last week or so, I'm supposed to have a 30 Mbit / 3 Mbit download and upload, that is what I'm paying for at least -.-'

#29 Posted by Chaser324 (5967 posts) -

I'm sure the highest I've had was when I lived on campus in college, but they were capping or all out blocking traffic on most ports other than http/https.

Right now, I'm at a little under 10 Mb/s, which is by far the best connection I've had at home.

At an hotel in Williamsburg Virginia, I downloaded a 6 gig file in about 20 minutes. At home, the highest I've had was 5 megs down.

#32 Edited by Shoey920 (50 posts) -

I'm capped at 3.6 MB/s (29 mbps) so that.

my upload is 600 kB/s

#33 Posted by MrJorOwe (267 posts) -

the 89 MB/s is obviously not my regular speed, was about 7 or 8 MB/s when I was on Virgin, usually about 3 MB/s now I live further out and am with BT.

#35 Posted by Superkenon (1191 posts) -

500 kB/s. I'll show you Internet.

#36 Edited by Pr1mus (3520 posts) -

That's usually around 3.6 - 4.0 MB/s.

#37 Posted by Zlimness (504 posts) -

I usually get around 12.1 mb/sec on Steam. Changing ISP soon though. Proper fiber and 250/100 mbit. While I've had no problem with this ISP, the fiber is going to be a lot cheaper and faster.

#38 Edited by troll93 (378 posts) -

It has only happened once when I was downloading some software from my uni that's in the same city, but it was actually downloading at 87MB/s, it was a good day.

#39 Edited by myketuna (1631 posts) -

Fastest I've ever downloaded is 6.2 MB/s. I was downloading something from Steam on my new, faster internet connection. It'll sometimes hit that speed again, but usually it'll stay around 4-5 MB/s if it's a good day or 2-3 MB/s if it's a bad day. Having to share cable internet and shit with the neighborhood sucks. I wish DSL was faster then I'd flock to it.

#40 Posted by OleMarthin (286 posts) -

i get 40/40 mb/s giving me a stable 3,6 MB down and up in a second.

#41 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (4445 posts) -

1 to 1.5 Mb/s. The best in my area.

#42 Posted by Syed117 (388 posts) -

#43 Posted by Levio (1781 posts) -

4 MB/sec in Texas.

Here there are plenty of very fast options but the ISPs will charge a ton if you pick a faster plan. My current plan has a great rate but it's temporary.

#44 Posted by Sanity (1853 posts) -

Usually around 8-9 MB's a second.

#46 Posted by Fattony12000 (6357 posts) -

Posted by friends, indeed.

#47 Posted by hermes (1270 posts) -

About 300 Kb/s

Yeahhhh...

#48 Posted by Zaccheus (1770 posts) -

I usually get just above 1MB/s with my 10/1Mbps connection so at least I'm getting what I'm paying for.

#49 Edited by Devil240Z (3054 posts) -

one billion.

#50 Edited by SteadyingMeat (635 posts) -

According to that speedtest thing, I get:

4 ms ping

50.22 mbps download speed

31.40 mbps upload speed

I only ever get about 7 mbps tops on Steam, though. Even lower on consoles.
