Old thread died, so it's time for the next version of this thread!

How fast is your internet? Are you satisfied with your speeds? Do you certainly wish your internet connection was faster than it is currently?




Those are my current speeds on my desktop with wifi from 40+ feet away from my router. I am satisfied with my speeds, especially considering how good my upload speed is. Although I do wish my speeds were a little faster than 25 Mb/s.. maybe at least 30-35 would do for me.

It's pretty good. We don't have FiOS here unfortunately. I want something a bit faster but that's just me being a geek.

It's decent, though the router is like 60 feet away. I think my university is triple this speed.

Oh hey, it's the thread where I get envious of other people's upload speeds (this test was the highest I've ever had it- normally it's closer to 2 MB/s than 3). The download speed is the fastest from any provider in our area though, so I guess I can't complain.

Considering that the UK's internet speeds are **** compared to most developed countries, the fibre optic connection is pretty good.

My internet speed has remained pretty much the same for me during the last couple of months, so I hope you guys don't mind if I post an old test result. ^^"



I'm quite happy with this speed. It's perfect for browsing websites, watching movies and TV shows, listening to music, gaming, and almost anything else that you're able to think of!

I'm glad that my download speed has improved, compared from the check that I made 2 months ago. The upload speed is the same though.
