I'd say my connection is fairly decent, but having an old computer kind of negates that.

^ Thats allgoodz bro, fast downloading speeds is what people want, and 22.43 Megabits per second is quite fast indeed -if pinging a close server.

Try to ping like Auckland New Zealand, the speed, it will be way slower.

Yes, I'm on dial-up because it's free. I've been on it for about two months now, though I'll soon be upgrading in anticipation of a job offer.

PM me if you have computer troubles. I work in IT for a living and can probably solve your problems. My rate is $expensive/hr, but I'm still cheaper than Creep Squad and, unlike them, will actually get the job done or let you know if I can't.

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

This is kinda good for someone in Britain considering we have horrible internet in this country. That upload time is just awful though.

As you can see, the UK's upload speed is just terrible, but my download speed is fairly good. Now if I could have over 2 MB upload, then I could stream games with no issues. I guess I should be thankful that my internet download is really good for when I wish to download movies, games etc.

Welcome to Australia... the download speed is somewhat tolerable, but the upload speed's horrendous. It's much better than the Internet I had two years ago, however (0.25 upload, 0.27 download, ~270 ping) :/

I'd say this is pretty decent. Though, not really a fan of Comcast, however, it is much better from when they were Adelphia Cable years ago.

I live in Montreal.. How is my download slower here compared to Quebec City lol

Also, Wellington... not sure if New Zealand or Australia, since Speed Check kinda just randomly picked it.

Not sure if FiOS is responsible for the minimal kbps loss here.

I pay75$/mo after tax for TV, Internet and home phone services with Bell. The bandwidth is unlimited, and you can boost the speed but it becomes too expensive! I can patiently sleep and wait overnight for stuff to download, and 5mbps is enough to play online without lag.

Canada's upload speeds are atrocious, though, and no provider seems to provide better upload mbps. Everything's stuck around 1mbps.

My dad is around 30mbps download, though, but he has a download cap.

I get 8-9 Mbps download speeds most of the time which is still slow when you copmpare it to today's internet speeds lol and a upload speed of 1Mbps but it's enough for me personally.

The package we're on is cheap anyay so I can't complain (£11.50 or something like that)

I'm content enough. Had to get Charter because Charter and AT&T are the main two providers where I live, and I'm happy with it because AT&T is horse crap. I had it when I lived with my mom and the speeds were like 4 down/.5 up.

Hughesnet sucks. But it is better then dialup. At least.

I'm planning to cancel and get internet through Centurylink. On paper, my speeds through Hughesnet are 2 Mbs. In practice though the high ping negates the majority of that speed. What I'd get from Centurylink would etiher be 75% or just under half (Two avaliable to me, 1.5 Mbs and 768 Kbs) of what my current, stated, speed is but the much, much, lower ping would let me get more use out of it. That and not having a daily download limit. (250 MB a day. Thankfully their is a free download period... I make heavy use of that.)

Either one would be slow speeds but still... Would be usable. Most of the games I want to play mp on again are older ones so they wouldn't require high speeds anyway.

It fluctuates, but sometimes it can get as high as 17 Mbs (or just about). I've never seen it over 17 though.
