    Hmm. Helps to know what you are paying for from your ISP. Also helps to post if this is on your own private network, or on a Public network.

    im with eircom (Ireland) and since our line hasnt been upgraded to fiber optic yet we get about 2 or 3Mbps. But since i got windows 8 i get rarely get 2. The biggest problem is youtube. vids load pretty quickly for the first minute and then stop almost completely or load so slow it might as well have stopped.

    2-3 meg forget about doing anything other then waiting for email to download. btw, no one asked if you had fiber. Just who your ISP was, and what speed.
