    The wireless router and/or wireless card in my laptop are my bottleneck.

    ATT U-Verse... I got the lesser package for now. 6D/1U so I got nearly what I should be.

    Pretty satisfied with it. It's not the fastest internet ever, but I'm getting better pings to just about any server in any online game I play than my old ISP.

    Okay, so this is my actual home connection (my last post was from work ^_^). I'm not at all pleased with Comcast's service however it was the only option for my apartment unless I wanted to get wireless DSL and either sign a contract or buy a bunch of equipment. I could get a faster Comcast connection but this one already costs me almost 50 bucks a month. Have I mentioned that I hate Comcast?

    I guess I must be maxed out as EVERY time I try to test my connection I get the exact same results, even the ping times don't change a hair.

    Yes I have twitter, there's not a darn thing they can do about it though. I have the "economy" tier of service which is only supposed to be like 1Mbps down IIRC. I couldn't afford to get a faster connection thanks to Comcast's ridiculously inflated pricing. It's freaking pathetic that I could be paying less money to have the "Elite" tier (6M down, 768 up) service if AT&T had DSL service here than I pay now for the "Economy" (read: crap) service through Comcast. Once I move into the house I'm purchasing it's so long Comcast and hello AT&T for me. My parents have the "Basic" AT&T DSL currently, they get almost the same speed as I get from Comcast but they pay 24 bucks a month instead of the $43/mo. that I pay.

    I have comcast as well. I rarely pay full price for their service. I usually call back every 6mo's or so (whatever the promotional rate lasts) and insist on the getting back the "promotional" rate. I'm not going to say Comcast is the greatest, but I've had comcast for years. (If Cliff is out there, this is where I wish there were more Broadband ISP's in my area). Since you are on a lower tiered plan you might be able to qualify for 19.99 @ 12mbps, won't hurt to ask and tell them to stick it up there aezzes...

    Service upgraded last month in our area, just after I bumped us up to RR's top tier.

    594261976.png

    Pay $55/mo for 15/2 with burst speeds up to 30Mbps, but there must be very few people on the local node because we get sustained speeds of 20Mbps+

    Heres the speedtest at my work through approximately 2km of backhauls (I work at a WISP).

    There's about 270 active people online right now. We have 8 bonded 6meg adsl connections and 600 customers.

    Were getting 100meg fiber burstable to 1 gigabit from cogent in 3 months tho. ADSL sucks for upload.

    What are you paying for that, if you don't mind me asking?

    Qwest 1.5/756 @$40/month which is the best in my area for the next 3 months until fiber to node is completed (someday the state is going to get fiber to house in my area, but the project is failing currently so it might not happen)

    I don't care too much what my download speed is, for my work it's all about the uploads

    With digital HD TV with DVR and home digital phone service, 65 euro a month. I think it would be 25-30 without the TV and phone.

    Work. Perhaps there is a little congestion/throttling action going on.
