Just got an email from Virgin saying that my internet is going up from 50mb to 120mb completely free of charge! I only upgraded to 50mb a couple weeks ago too, from 10mb. So this is like hyperspeed for me haha.

What service provider do you use, and what speed are you on?

VM, it's going up to 60mb once they upgrade. I doubt it will get ****ing near it though in practice.
#4
I'm with Virgin as well, we're getting ours doubled too from 30mb/s to 60mb/s.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

56 Mb/s. It's a decent speed though the PC I use sucks. I have 4 laptops in the house but there not as satisfying as a proper desktop PC.
#7
They won't install cable in my area for some reason. I'm still stuck on 10mb :/
O.K.

I live in America, so its super ****ing shitty. Im with comcast and Im on 25 mb/s plan. I get on average 3 mb/s download 1 mb/s upload when I go to the speed tests.


It wont let me do the test on speednet right now to actually show you, but Ive done it so many times and have gotten the same results. Oh and you guys are probably paying less than me for those 10x better speeds.

Oh the irony of speedtest.net loading very slowly.

CARRIT: Speedtest is blocked here in China. That's how slow our internet is. Let me get my VPN up.

DoubleCARRIT:



By the way, it says San Francisco because that's where my VPN reroutes my IP.

I'm all for high-speed internet, but I only stream, never download.. so I only actually need about 3Mbps. Probably a lot of you like me too. What we in the UK really need is more generous DL limits

Yep. As you can see in my previous post, my speed is not that high, compared to many people.
However, it's pretty fast for everyday use (loads most web pages instantaneously), and i have unlimited downloads.

Good enough for gaming, upload is disappointing though, can't live stream.

EDIT: My parents only pay for 5 mbps.

To all of you complaining about having only 10 mb: Boo hoo, cry me a ****ing river!

EDIT: ^I thought you lived in China...?
EDIT 2: I saw your last post now. It might be your VPN that's slow, right?

My brother, living a few hundred miles east from here, have almost 500 mbps download and almost 100 in upload, as well as less than 10 ms ping...

If you can't live stream with a 24mb connection then there's an issue somewhere along the line.
I live-stream HD without issues on my 7mbps connection

Speed of light. Give or take a few kilometres.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Just making sure we're on the same page, I mean live streaming stuff from my screen, like streaming whatever game I'm playing for people to watch.
