    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Peaked at 33Mbps down, 6 Mbps up within the first 3 months of service but now 25Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up more typical, with Sky. Prior to this I had 3Mbps down and about 200Kbps up, with EE. It's better now than it was but I'd obviously prefer to have the option for even faster but sadly that's not available in my corner of North Lanarkshire.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    2.5Mbps due to distance from exchange. Probably could get faster if I went fibre, but as it is fast enough for most things, and I only pay £15 a month all-in unlimited, I'm quite happy.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Unlimited Internet Plusnet Fibre up to 38Mb, Scotland (central belt) , £22.90/month incl. line rental (PAYG calls so none included).

    Ping 25ms
    32-35 MBps down
    10Mbps upload

    good enough for me.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    387mbs down and 21.77 mbs up. paying £38 a month for internet alone to VM. i got a better deal by upgrading my speed than staying on the 200mbs package, so faster and cheaper. to be honest, once you get to about 150mbs you don't really notice the faster speeds unless you are sitting measuring it or literally waiting on a download to tick down. but i can download pretty much as fast as anything will serve me, whilst watching a couple of HD streams (ie. netflix on tv and something on the pc), without any noticeable slowdown

    In France on Orange broadband and phone only (€37 per month) = Ping:17ms Upload:0.85Mbps Download:8.72Mbps. I am out in the countryside so am happy enough for now.

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Run two 40meg ADSL2 lines from Sky (£18 all in) and Talk Talk (£28 all in). Use Sophos UTM to balance/failover.

    Both run down the same UTP cable (I asked the Openreach man to separate, but hey-ho). Get 30 something down, about 7-8 up which given my distance from the box is okay).

    Virgin are laying cables in my area currently, but quite liking the resilience so will probably keep one of these lines going if I can get another deal like the Sky package.

    As part of of a package with TV and phone line for £100 a month. I don't consider it too bad. Especially as work give me £40 a month to cover broadband at home.

    are you bragging or just trolling?

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    I get 40Mb down, annoyingly houses around the corner get 80Mb, but my line goes through a pillar according to BT so I won't get the 80Mb.

    Has they installed a new line as asked back when I moved in 6 years ago then I might be able to get 80Mb now but oh well.

    Given that another poster has demonstrated a whole Gig of download, I wouldn't say this is anything to brag about or troll with.....

    Re: QOTW: How fast is your broadband?

    Are the Up/Download still largely asymmetric even on fibre in the UK?

    I no longer live in Japan, but still spend a fair amount of time here every year, and I find that a lot of connections here are either symmetric, or, oddly enough, sometime much faster in the upstream than downstream. My guess is that people download more than they upload; since I no longer live here, I am usually on shared connection; back when I had my own line it was more or less 90+ to 100MBit for both up and down on a 100MBit line (1GBit was available, but I just didn't see the need for it).

    UK speeds are generally much higher on the download.... because we're quite boring here with nothing interesting to upload, because we don't want to risk uploading something that might offend anyone, and because while the weather is so often raining we don't even get double rainbows to share on social media!!

    Ping 15ms - Down 210.34Mbps - Up 13.61Mbps. VM really hamstrings us on the uploads, I get roughly the same on my 4G mobile.
