So, how fast is the speed of your internet?
Wondering whether there is a dramatic difference between countries (like Australia and US).

On the computer I'm using now (my girlfriend's) we usually connect at about 4.7 Mbps.

Don't know what the speed of my Internet at uni is.

the rock bottom i've had was 28.8 kbps. The dial-up was so slow, you fap longer than when you have sex

But we've had wi-fi, only runs at 3.8-5mbps though depending on the signal

Actually, I just can't get broadband where I live, I can only get dial-up. My parents have tried with four or so different companies, and none can get us broadband here.

EDIT: Dial-up stories...

I had a virus once. To get rid of it, you needed to download a program that would take 10 hours on my internet speed, and the internet stays connected six.

Another virus lowered the speed to 3.2kbps. Man that sucked.

Your pictures, and everyone elses, take so long to load, can people please just say the speeds?

Actually, saying this I wouldn't be surprised if everyone just posts other pictures as well and says "LAG!"

I miss out on the photoshop threads because of internet speed, I sometimes see a few pictures, but miss most because of how slow it loads, or sometimes doesn't load at all.

As you can see from the disproportionate upload/download speeds, it's inaccurate. I have no idea why, though.

Using a test from my ISP's website I get around 4.8mb/s and they advertise as 5mb/s so I'm guessing that it's a lot more accurate.

If my dad and brother aren't on i get 8mb/s

roughly. Max 10mb/s
