I'm supposed to have 2048kb/s, and speedtest says I have 1918. Looks fine to me.

Your upload speed is quite high actually, it's higher than mine.
The fact your behind a router can change the results though, even more so if it's wireless.

That's really good, isn't it?
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

i believe i AM somehow paying for my internet connection in the dorms, something like 1€ per months and the line is friggin sweet. My harddrive cant write all the data fast enough

I can't remember if we're paying for 1.5mbit or 2mbits here at home but i get about 1.87mbits (or 240kB/s) on a good day which is good enough
so far i've hit like 3.8 megabytes/second

I know I'm not. I upgraded my service because it offered unlimited bandwidth. Then like 4 months later they decided to limit it to 100gb (Download+Upload) per month. Yes 100gb is a lot, but I'm paying 30$ more per month for it and for that price it doesn't justify it. Also last month they started limiting downloading. At times where more people are on the internet, they limit the download speed even though the service I got is supposed to be faster than regular high speed and at times I only download at like 30kb/s while usually I go at at least 250kb/s.

Thankfully they're getting sued for it, their defense is that their contract states they can change terms on the contract at anytime. It's idiotic, it's like promising someone a salary of 30$ per hour, but on their contract they state that they can change anything at anytime and a month later they decide to lower your salary at 10$ per hour for no reason. Hopefully, court will decide that they either bring back their unlimited service, or lower the price of the service.

Hm...

it depends how far away from the telephone exchange you are, and what kind of wire is used. why is it that big a deal? move nearer the telephone exchange and install fibre optic cables if it bothers you that much. the internet companies aren't lying to you; you can get up to the speed they say, depending on where you live.

there's nothing they or you can do about it, stop whinging about something stupid.

They can charge you less.
And you can complain.

everyone in my house works off of the same modem...

both of my parents use xp, and their pc's are insanely fast

i use vista, and my internet likes being gay (go figure)

i guess this is the price i pay for using a router compatible w/ xp on vista
#27
Comcast cable internet for me...



Im not sure what my parents are signed up for but I do know they never sign up for the top of the line stuff........
I find any internet use here real fast so I say yes I'm getting what we paid for.
