EV, do you have a plain text version of whatever you posted. My Internet is too slow to handle graphics  ;)

I'm envious of anyone who can watch even 720p movies on YouTube. Sometimes I have to crank them down to 240. All I get to watch is static. I live outside a small town in Montana, USA, and am at the very end of what is already a slow DSL line. I tried running SPEEDTEST and they just laughed!

Not really. They cried. My download speed? 1.33 MB/s. Upload? .71Mb/s.

It sucks to be me. I actually I've had to leave the state to post some of my longer diatribes here on WWGHA.  ;D

Its off the actual website. This stuff is real. Check the URL, it's from Speedtest.com: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2500925552.png

I'm at a school that gets a 5Gb/s Connection, in the mornings less people use it so I get more of the bandwidth. Hence the blazing speed!

88.30Mb/s Download, 59.97MB/s Upload, and a 6ms ping.

I used to have that problem at my house.

With TalkTalk, we were promised 5-7Mb/s but only ever got about 2. My father called up the company and told them that since they were only giving us half the speeds, we were only paying half the price. After much arguing they consented and we got a 50% discount on our broadband price.

Recently we grew dissatisfied with our rubbish speed, as we now have a SmartTV that can stream LoveFilm. Only one person could use the internet simultaneously so we needed a quicker speed.

We bullied our service provider into giving us fibre optic for only an extra £5/month. Even with that, we still aren't paying as much before we got the 50% discount! Our home internet speed is now up to about 24Mb/s. Which is a 12x improvement...

Not really. They cried. My download speed? 1.33 MB/s. Upload? .71Mb/s.

Ahh... I feel for you my friend, that is really quite poor. Presumably there is nothing they can do to make it faster? (like fibre optic as compensation for crap service)

Well, at least you're dedicated... ;)

ParkingPlaces, maybe you need this: https://fiber.google.com/about/

Google Fibre apparently give free 5MB connections, and if you pay $70/month you get a 1,000Mb/s connection. That's not too bad ;)
