Hey guys, 
 
Im looking at upgrading my broadband package, just wondering what you guys are on?  
 
whats your speed, monthly download allowance, and provider? Do you have any problems playing online with your deal?

Uhhh... 100 megabits per second I think? 
 
Megabyte wise that translates to about 5 mB per second for download speed? At least that's what the speedtest.com says; but someone tells me that ISPs prioritize that site. 
 
Damn you lying ISPs! >_<

#15 Posted by Yummylee (21242 posts) -

Something average like 10MB's or something. It's...tolerable...for me at least.

#16 Edited by RVonE (4603 posts) -

50 Mb/s down, 50 Mb/s up. No download limit. 40 Euro per month.
#17 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

I posted it in the other 20 topics asking this.

#18 Posted by damnboyadvance (4059 posts) -

Mine isn't too bad, especially the ping. As far as I know, there is no cap.
#19 Posted by OmegaChosen (644 posts) -

5 Mbps, unlimited, AT&T DSL. It's the best I can get and it gets what I need done.

cox communications, I'm on a router though so I only rarely get 2 mb/s on megaupload.

#28 Posted by MonetaryDread (1991 posts) -

Some company called Mascon just installed high-speed in our area. For fifty dollars a month I have access to a 1mb connection DSL line with a 40gb a month cap. It's totally a bullshit ripoff but it's the only option in our neck of the woods. It could be worse though. The village of Whitecroft (yes, I live in a village that has less than a hundred citizens) only had access 56k up until a couple of months ago.

#30 Posted by Intro (1205 posts) -

10 down, 5 up

#31 Posted by ShadowSkill11 (1783 posts) -

About 4.5 MB/s (not mb/s) down and up, no caps.

#32 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3005 posts) -

56k for life! Earthlink baby!

#33 Edited by Yesiamaduck (899 posts) -

Mine was 130mbps second once... then the place I moved to (in the center of Brighton... about a mile from where Ilive) has no form of fiber optics whats so ever! Furthermore my phoneline is wank and my would be 24mbps ranges from not connecting at all to speeds a 56k modem would be ashamed of! Getting it fixed next week though, miss my old connection :(

#34 Posted by MagusMaleficus (1035 posts) -

30 Mb/s down, 3 Mb/s up, 350GB/month limit, although if I go over they just charge me the difference (and I do pretty much every month--there are a lot of folks in my house).

#35 Posted by lclay (383 posts) -

As above, unlimited downloads. According to Virgin Media this is fast enough for a family of 4. Screw them what do they know? This gets me about 7.5mb/s download from steam and it's only about £25 a month. Totally worth it :)

#36 Posted by Sammo21 (3211 posts) -

I am currently on EPB's fiber optic service so I get 100Mbps for $57 a month. They originally had us at 50 Mbps but they bumped everyone up for free so if you were on 100 Mbps then they bumped you up to their 1 Gigabit package.

#37 Posted by isomeri (1223 posts) -

50 Mb/s down and 5 Mb/s up. I pay 25 euros a month for this and there's no "download allowance". I have been planning on doubling my speed because it would only cost me an extra 7 euros a month.

It's the name of the service from Time Warner in the states. I'm in the North East US and have Road Runner.

This is via wireless from my laptop so I'm not maxing it out (not sure if it is 40/40, 45/45 or 50/50), our ISP are just fucking awesome. They are very helpful if there is anything wrong and easy to get a hold of. There is no cap (never has been), and this started of like 5 years ago or so as a 5/5 line and they have increased the speeds overtime without increasing the price. It is also fiberoptic. I'm so happy I live in a country (Norway) where most (not all) ISPs are sensible.

#43 Posted by hermes (1365 posts) -

The best I got was about 300 KB/s download and 60 KB/s upload. No cap. About 40$/month.

And no, I am not happy about it...

#44 Posted by Phyrlord (171 posts) -

You guys should come to Canada, where your main choice are Bell or Rogers and they are not competitive at all. :(

6megabyte down and 500kilobyte up and 230 gigs sits around $100/month.. they do offer lots of promotions though. Right now have that plan at 55% off for 2 years.

#45 Edited by Glottery (1104 posts) -

94.95 Mb/s Download, 12.07 Mb/s Upload, since the beginning of last week. It's a rather nice update to the 2 Mb/s one I used to have...

Haven't really played anything online as of yet, 'cept WoW. But I know that buying Steam games became a lot more tempting, when I can play just about any game on the same day I buy it.

#46 Posted by T0MBraider (33 posts) -

12mb download, 0.8 upload (500gb per month)

#47 Posted by NoctisLucisCaelum (94 posts) -

#48 Posted by mordukai (7133 posts) -

Broadband speeds in my area does my head in.

Something that's physically connected by copper cabling at my home with big routers and exchanges, I get about 6mbps down and 1mbps up.

On 4G, over the frickin air.. I get about 30mbps down and 5mbps up.
