    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    35.2 down / 9.2 up / 17ms ping. Sky Fibre £38.99 a month inc. line rental cost (£18.99 line rental + £20 for Sky Fibre). Actually better than the speed I got with BT Fibre, plus it doesn't cost anything if I need an engineer to come out to sort problems out unlike with BT.

    Do I think it's good value? NO. Absolutely not even remotely. With Virgin prior to moving I had ~150+ down and ~8 up with ~20ms ping + TV + Phone for £55. So no, I think the Openreach network is antiquated and are atrocious to deal with regardless of whomever supplies services through their network (sorry Sky, Virgin are better by a mile).

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    500/500/14ms ping + TV @ roughly £100/month (Altibox/Norway). Real speed varies between 500Mbps and 550Mbps.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Where to, and at what time?

    Serious questions. I've just done a few tests (fast/speedtest/bt wholesale); 10 minutes ago I was getting 9Mbps from one side of the Pennines and < 7Mbps from the other. But right now I'm getting ~ 14Mbps both ways, and 16Mbps from BT wholesale. None of which are close to the alleged 37Mbps we're meant to get, but are far enough apart to show that there's more to "How fast is your broadband" than service headline line speeds.

    IIRC we pay less than £30 a month for that, and it came with a big data boost for my partner's mobile contract too. The FTTC switch on actually happened at almost exactly the same time we moved here, so when we were planning the move we were told we couldn't get fibre and would be stuck with ADSL. OTOH, we were offered that for free based on the existing services we already had with that provider, which wouldn't have been too bad a deal...

    got 200Mbps and paying £40 a month. Can't say it's a good value, but can't say it's too overpriced

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Average result after a few tests:

    19 ms Ping
    130 Mbps download
    10 Mbps upload

    That's Virgin Media, part of a package with landline and basic TV services for £58 a month.

    I don't really want the landline or the TV service, but to have them taken off would save hardly anything in monthly costs.

    I don't think it's especially good value, but it hardly ever goes wrong, maybe once a year there's a minor outage, so on that basis I'm happy with it.

    In my country we have 1gbps fiber to the home at ~ 15 pounds. We also have 150 Mbps 4g mobile at 5 euro
