How fast is your internet connection?

I am interested to know how much ranchers pay for their internet connection around the world, and the capabilities of their line. Do you connect to the internet everyday by dialing through your modem, or stay online 24/7? Do you have a home network? What is your setup like? Do you pay per minute or a fixed amount?

I'll start:

Speed: 1Mb/256Kb (Download/Upload)
Cost: �23.44/month (equivalent to $44.13/34.14 Euros/2018 Indian Rupees)
Country: UK
Setup: ADSL Broadband (uncapped) connection on 24/7 via ADSL Router (network with 6 machines)

4MBit down, 1-8 (1 guaranteed) MBit up.
Paying �55 per month.
Demon Internet Netherlands.
And yes, I'm online pretty much 24/7 (unless I plan to be away from home for more than a week or so).

My broadband cable fee is bundled with the HDTV service and HD DVR (and some so-called digital channels that look just as bad as the non-HDTV ones but I get because of the Science channel...)

But I calculate that for 4MBps download I pay around $40 or sightly less.

I don't care about the upload speed but according to DSL reports is (at the time of this writing),

"dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-06-03 17:34:05 EST:
2344 / 78
Your download speed : 2344 kbps or 293 KB/sec.
That is 38.7% worse than an average user on adelphia.net

"Your upload speed : 78 kbps or 9.7 KB/sec.
That is 86.5% worse than an average user on adelphia.net

which is funny since adelphia.net *IS* my broadband ISP! HA ha!

I must admit this is the slowest report so far. DSL Reports' server in Miami is down though, and that's the one closest to me BY FAR...

According to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ ...

Download Speed: 4769 kbps (596.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 281 kbps (35.1 KB/sec transfer rate)


And according to http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest?more=1 ...

4736 / 353
Your download speed : 4736 kbps or 592 KB/sec.
That is 41.3% better than an average user on mindspring.com
Your upload speed : 353 kbps or 44.1 KB/sec.
That is 2.6% better than an average user on mindspring.com


And according to http://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/ ...

Communications: 4 megabits per second
Storage: 492.5 kilobytes per second
1MB file download: 2.1 seconds
Subjective rating: Awesome


I'm not sure exactly what I pay, because it's included with my cable TV bill. I think it's something like $40-45 per month? Anyway, I'm happy.

Wow, this is an old topic! I guess things have changed since 2006.

At home, I have an ADSL connection that in theory should support up to 20 Mbit/s download. In practice the maximum speed is about 14 Mbit/s (about 1.7 MB/s). One of the reasons why it doesn't reach the max. speed is probably because I have quite a long telephone cable running along the wall of my living room from the socket to the desk where my computer and telephone are. I don't even know what it costs, I think around € 30 per month for telephone + Internet.

And things have changed again since January 2011. Now I have Internet via the TV cable, the speed is about 60 Mbit/s (download).

Within the next couple of weeks I should have a fiber-optic hook-up. The cable has already been dug in up to my front door. It's being installed throughout my entire hometown.

Same here in Singapore. I can get fiber services at 100mbs upload and 100mbps download for about 50US$ per month.

What I got now is cable at 100mbps download 4mbps upload at the same price.
