What's your internet speed?

I'm just curious as to how fast some internet REALLY is, and how slow other peoples' are.

I'd like everyone to run the Speakeasy Speed Test. Please post your results, ISP, connection type, and price per month you pay. Thanks guys!

Here's mine:

I have SBC Yahoo! DSL and pay $14.95/month.

    Lame. I have Charter, and we pay for 3.2, but never ever get it. I know it's a Saturday night, but it could be a Sunday night at 2 am and we rarely get higher. I keep crossing my fingers that Charter will finally lose so much they'll go bankrupt.

    Everyone else across the country is getting upgraded to 4, 5, even 6 mbps downspeed, FOR FREE. Charter usually keeps us the same and INCREASES the price. I hate those ****ers.

    We pay almost $50/month, too, and that's after the cable TV discount. LAME LAME LAME. The only other option is DSL, and that's miserable as well around here.

    He's at college, dude. The only downside is the firewalls are hard as hell to get around, if it's possible at all.

    I didn't know you had to pay for internet, though. Either that's not very common, or I won't be having internet at college ;D

    I have Comcast (Northeast), standard cable internet service, it's like $40 or $45/month i think through comcast, but through my parents its free, so that rules.

    Comcast in northern New Mexico. Really, we're lucky to have broadband at all :D. $46/mo, with the $15 discount for having their horrible cable TV service.

    He probably means his tuition :D. I miss my carefree days of uber-bandwidth in the dorms. They didn't crack down on file-sharing and stuff until I moved out. :thumbsup:

    Shaw Regular internet service. There's 6 other computers active online currently so the upload is a little on the low side (normally its ~600 kbps).

    I pay $30 cdn / month as part of a bundle iirc.

    depending on the time of day, that can vary greatly, as they cut us back when people are more likely to be using the network for school-type things.

    wow how much do you pay for that?
  • edited Sep 2005
    This is what I got, but let me tell you, the upload test isn't accurate at all on their test. At least it isn't on sat broadband. There's no way in hell my sat connection gets that high an upload speed.

    Here's my specifics: Direcway sat broadband, $60/month.

    I just wish I had any kind of ground based broadband choice here, but no dice. :bawling:

    Cox Tucson Highspeed Internet Premier = 9Mbps Down/1Mbps Up = $54.99.

    It was a $15.00 premium over their Prefered package ($39.99 for 4Mbps D/ 512 U). Since I waste more than $15.00 a month on BS ( Mickey D's, CDs, Games, Beer) I figured it was worth it.

    Its feels like the difference I experienced going from dial-up to cable. So far its worth every penny.
