Thats not bad if your only paying for a 512 connection.....that is what I would expect.

However, for most, you can upgrade and actually pay less for a better connection....

Can only get 512. :(

Well then your getting what you'd pay for......would be more of an issue if you weren't hitting it.

Unfortunately not I actually pay for a higher cpnnection speed but I can only get 512 I still pay for the package so I get the higher download quota per month. :(

I'm paying the same amount for 4mbit. I'm intending to ring them up and asking for the price new customers get for 20mbit.

My dad's on it for £28 or £30 per month. I managed to get the deal thanks to Tony informing me, so I got it for the price of 4Mbit.

I'm like 20 miles from London, I expect decent broadband to be available. Enough people live in my area for ISPs to justify putting at least fairly decent infrastructure here. At least the download/upload speed ratio is better there.

I have 2048/2048 Kbps connection here (2Mbit). It's pretty cool for our region. Moscow people, of course, have much more faster connections.

Hey All,

Just wondered how fast you all download. I finally got my connection sorted and wanted to see how it compares to everyone else?

I know it's not incredible compared to connections most people will have. But anyway.

Well, I'm so sorry you have such "bad" connection...Your download speed is around 4 times faster then mine.. ADSL 1024/128 ..Also, this is my shout to all on ApexDC++ community,since i just registered... :)

Hi!

Don't get me wrong, my connection isn't slow, but considering the average speed in most countries surpasses 10Mb that is the basis of my statement :lol:

I have Insight Communications and their offered internet speeds are 10Mbit/s (standard) and 20Mbit/s (for $20 extra). I am very happy with the 10Mb service but I know people who regularly get 25-30Mbit/s from their 20Mbit/s connection. No cap on the higher speed package?

Using my ADSL connection i routinely get about 14mb out of a 24mb connection, and average about 1MB/s upload

Using my cable connection i usually get 2.35MB/s out of a 20mb connection, but only 784Kb upload.

THe Adsl conneciton is Be, and cable is VirginMedia.

EDIT:

HAving said that, look at the attatchment, and see the vagaries of the Internet Service Providers, and the sometimes testing of increased speeds :)
