Internet speed test thread!
Lets see some of those poor guys with rural DSL and satellite internetl.
What I always find impressive about mine isn't the speed itself, but how many people have a faster connection than me in my country.
I pay for 50/50 and I do not know why my upload is this good.
I live in a smaller city, about 75,000 citizens.
Australia confirmed dildos, I'm just glad there's something at all tbqh
Australian internet is fucked. An ex-government company holds a monopoly on all the copper and uses barely trained contractors to bandaid the fuck out of everything instead of fixing it.
Seriously, I work at an aussie ISP and we had a fault with a customer's lead in cable. The techs that attended rigged up a temporary cable (temporary meaning it will be replaced sometime in the next few years) and put a plastic shopping bag over the joint to keep it dry. During rain, the bag would fill with water and fall down, knocking the service offline. So another tech would go out and... replace the bag.
50/mo no cap. Northwest Kansas.
TV and Internet package for the total of 25 US dollars a month. Absolutely love living here~ The building has "lucky" 888mbps/222mbps but its like 45 a month --- and I hardly use what I have so no reason to upgrade... yet...
Mostly Firefox and slow Pentium 4 HT computer are the culprit for this slow connection. For fucks sake,I have a Marvel Yukon GbE chip.

The fuck,did they NEVER HEAR of duct tape? At least that would work better...
I fixed a ~20m CAT5 cable with pliers (to twist the wires together enough to make good contact) then wrapped everything up and tested - still works to this day,it's used to FTP games on my old modded Xbox.
>pic unrelated,firefox acts up sometimes.
I tested on a Comcast server for maximum kek.
Google cant get here fast enough.
recently upgraded to fiber after years of dsl hell. feels good!
Rural Indiana during a lake effect snow squall.Testing download speed........................................
Download: 3.88 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed..................................................
Upload: 0.95 Mbit/s
I live in a shithole, nothing weird.
It's supposed to be 100/100 but whatever, it gets to 10-12MB/s when I'm actually downloading so that's good enough for me.
kek I live in Paris, and this is with bouygues, 19.99€/month. At least I can leave when I want with no termination fee.
This is incredible. Here all the plans are TV+phone+non capped internet for 20€/month. ~45€ if you want fiber usually.
I know it's shit, but they've never bothered me. Only other option here is TWC with a lot faster speed, but do they monitor for torrents?
>town of ~15k pop
>almost everyone has fiber to their building
>literally just connected to 6mb/s optus
i don't eat much to pay for these speeds in australia
Guys quick question. Do countries bottleneck your bandwidth? For example, if you have 100Mb/s DL in your country and try to speedtest a country on the other side of the planet, does it get to something like 20Mb/s because the other country has shit connections or is it just due to distance?
Sorry if it's messy to read, i tried to type in English at my best
>tfw just finished wiring the house
My ISP doesn't seem to limit upload properly, I got 400 up when I was wiring yesterday, paying for 100/100
>tfw speeds at home in london are literally 6 times slower than this
