Virgin Media. Same as me. I'm about 35-40 miles from the server. I wonder if fibre optic would be quicker.

Are you sure you're not on fiber now?  That's some pretty good speed!

No. Just ordinary cable. I've been thinking about it for a while but I wonder if the increase speed is great enough to justify the extra cost. I wonder how fast it has to be to get grade "A" or "A+"

Frank - there is a company near my house that offers 40 mbps download speeds.  Wish I was in their region!

My home broadband... Haha Kin Hell, I'm nearly slower than you!

My school gets a 50Mb/s connection. It's insane. There's at least 30Mb/s upload as well.

Haha, I tried connecting to sydney as a test, and the Ping time shows there must be a God, but it's a Satanic one!

Jet, I've cleaned up my hard drive and upgraded my ooglesnuffler. Squeezed another two mbps out of this baby. I know there's more...



Everybody still envious?

Good.

NEVER get TalkTalk broadband. It's so intermittent, I've been on this speed for about 14 hours now. Trying to download massive amounts of sound samples for my music composition programs, and it's abysmal. Lucky me, I was actually getting 3 times this yesterday...

Although on the plus side, I have downloaded about 61GB of data in the last week and a half. Logic Pro samples, 30GB, Sibelius 7 samples, 28GB, Windows 7, isos, 3GB.... We get uncapped internet, but it's so damn slow it's barely worth it.

Mr Blackwell, I may presume that you have a 1990's-era 56K dialup connection from those statistics.

- is it in your home?
Yeah. And to make you feel worse, Virgin are in the process of installing fibre-optic cables in London, and the rate's soon going to double. Free upgrade, too.

Hey, George, I got the upgrade yesterday.

Read and weep, people:

So Gnu - there is indeed a god!  Holy Moly.  Words can no longer describe the jealousy I am feeling at this moment.

You sir, are no longer allowed to post your speed on the forum.  Damnit.   ;D

Meh.

That's because you have all the win.  The company nearby that I spoke about earlier in the thread is now offering 80.  I wonder what they charge?

Sorry to necromance this, but I just got back to School and have now got my Broadband speedtester up and running on our industrial connection... I think some may be jealous.

Gnu- you may have double my download, but I have about 10x your upload. Suck it ;)

Damn right, and don't forget it! ;) I've seen it.

My speed varies regularly, depending on how many people are connected to our network. I'll see if I can snapshot it at midnight tonight, I've seen it go up to well over 100Mb/s on a good day...

I'm using Wireless too. I plugged in the ethernet the other day and got the full whack, but saying that I'm one of the first people in my town to get infinity and my house is about 40 feet away from the cabinet, hence the speed.
