I am living in a dorm and they charge ~2.60 USD (1.40 LVL) for it

(I am was using torrent while testing, so might be inaccurate)

Even though it seems normal, I still can't use irc for downloading and sometimes DDL's don't work as good as expected.

$2.60 per gigabyte? I am interested to know what my home internet is like...

How much are people paying for what kind of download limit?

As I said, it only looks good, but connection is not stable so sometimes during download I loose connection to server. Also I don't think there is any download limit for my connection, I usually spend ~3TB for torrent (total transfer up+down) and still everything works just fine.

I think mines decent 4MB/s DL and 1MB/s UL. To say i am on wireless and my PC is located upstairs. I don't know how much it is so as i live with my parents so my dad's paying for it, its also unlimited upload and download, and i love BT even more because unlike the rest of the ISP's they haven't blocked Pirate bay yet ¬_¬.


Also wanting my dad to upgrade to either 80 or 100 meg. Even told him id split the cost to upgrade with him.

why sooooo fast?!?! 30Mb/s is plenty fast enough. 100Mb/s is just too fast that 99% of the time you can NEVER use all the bandwidth...

Unless there is multiple users! Or download onto multple computers/HDDs

I wish I had that much. I pay for 20mbps line and only get about 11 (if i can remember by router stats right) because of my distance from DSLAM and apartment wiring. The peak download speed for me is 1.2 Mb/s :(

At least it is unlimited downloads.

Soon will have my actual speed test up!

Edit: here it is

Just like what Zach said there is multiple people using the internet all day.

My dad from 9:00 till when ever due to work, PS3 always online same as the Xbox, there's also a laptop online all day too and obviously me on the main computer all day uploading torrents to increase my ratio on bakaBT and on Star Trek Online :)

Not at all bad for a rural village in the UK. Amittedly, this is on LLU with TalkTalk, so it is about double the ADSL in the area.

My horrid internet. 160gb datacap (that's the highest my ISP currently allows, without paying $2 per gigabyte over your data cap).
The so called VDSL2+ has been "coming soon" for about 2 years now, still no sign in improvements. All I want is better upload speeds...

20-40Mb/s is plenty fast enough for 20+ people to surf the web and as long as someone isnt downloading the internet at MAXIMUM SPEED others can still easily surf. you just got to throttle your downloads to ~80% max bandwidth. but i guess these are just my opinions as i personally think that 15Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up is plenty fast enough for me and 2 other guests on my network, anything more is bonus.

Pretty fast for me so far but I'd like to upgrade it soon to their Internet 40 mb/s.

Currently on a bundle with my ISP for phone, tv, and internet. I get about 20 mb/s down but barely .9 mb/s up but the great thing is that no sites are blocked and no monthly cap.

Mine is currently this, not to brag, but I've seen the upload go up to 10 mb/s.

This is plenty for me, I mostly do downloads, and there are at most 3-4 computers connected at a time which is for web surfing (suckers, I hog all the bandwidth :devil: ), plus two or three ipods/iphones/ipad at times.

But my only complain is that the router they provided me limits the connections to 2 mb/s, whether it is wired (Ethernet) or wireless, but if more computers are connected I do not feel a slower connection as they also get 2 mb/s each.

For all these, to me, very fast connections. How much do people pay, if they do not mind me inquiring?
