    Finally ditched my 1500/384 ADSL for Cable, no regrets.

    About 6x the download speed and 2x the upload speed for the same price ($44.95/mo + tax), I should have did it years earlier. My actual download speeds level out at about 954 KB/sec.

    To keep with the original requests of this thread I re-tested with Speakeasy and am providing the required information.

    ISP Cox/Suddenlink
    Type Cable
    Price $48.99/mo. This is only $4.00 more than I paid for Roadrunner before I moved and it wasn't even close to this speed!


    ps:
    I don't think LIN will want to move in with Leishi now. ;)

    well i pay nearly £24 for my connection and am told that because i am 4.3km away from my nearest exchange i cant get the 24 meg broadband that most are offering

    Nobody gets 24mb in the UK, phone lines are just not up to it.

    pipex

    is that 17.99 unlimited?
  • TroganTrogan London, UK
    edited January 2007
    Yeah, unlimited with Tiscali broadband.

    Its £17.99 for 8MB but they said we could only receive 5MB. Still not bad, though.

    how are they as far as p2p and torrents

    i think pipex are limiting me but not actually admitting it

    my line drops sometimes and i have to restart my comp

    usually happens when im dl'ing

    very annoying!
  • TroganTrogan London, UK

    I don't use P2P or torrents. My brother does, occasionally and I have not noticed any problems.

    The line drops, sometimes but I think that's due our router.

    well when my connection messes up, only the downstream is affected, upstream carries on fine

    i think pipex are trying to sabotage me!

    How much do you pay? How long left, if your on a contract?

    Just wondering: What would be the average download speed for 5MB, that is used between two computers?
