What's your Internet Speed?


speed..test.PNG

The theoretical highest speed I can achieve in my town is only 4Mbps. That is the highest speed our local exchange supports.

South Africa lags far behind other countries in internet speeds ... some major cities are rolling out 20Mbps (and even trialling FTTH, but most smaller towns have a max of 10Mbps, and smaller towns such as where I live only support 4Mbps

Got to love fiberoptics! ;)
3699986306.png

would like to upgrade to Gigabit but the family does not agree with me :/
20$/month; a bit pricier due to that we run our home telephone of the fiberoptics... 10$ for only internet and 14$ for 100 down 100 up.
40-50$ for gigabit, But thats only for 100Mb/s, but then we have to change isp because our current one doesnt support 1000mb/s.

I moved a month ago, I dropped Century Link because my speed went from 7Mbps down to 1.8Mbps down. YIKES! I signed up with the only other option and what a change!

Com[Fail]cast in Jacksonville, FL. My plan's supposed to be 25/5, so I'll take this.


Unfortunately, I can't say that it's too stable, even via Ethernet. There have been a few days where I came home, after being gone all day, to seeing download speeds of 0.25Mbps while the upload was normal.

In Texas, I had Time Warner Cable, and *always* got a consistent 22 down and 2.2~ up (20/2 plan).
