I'm Irish and I have the same speed as them in the afternoons and evenings.
In the early mornings and past midnight it's about 300-400Kb/s
Daily reminder that South Korea is technically a 3rd world country and it has the best internet in the world. 1st/2nd/3rd world do not mean what you think it means, and you look like a retard when you say it.
Jesus christ anon, I'm sorry.
Not even mine is that bad.
How is that even possible? I'm not even joking. The fucking Mars rover, the thing that's on goddamn Mars right now, has a better connection than you. Where the fuck are you located? Because I'm pretty sure that there is no place on Earth where you'd be able to get a connection without it being at least several times faster.

The joys of living in the middle of butt fuck nowhere in britbongshire. If I were to walk to my nearest shop, it's two and a half hours away and it's a corner shop. There's a bus that comes through twice a day to go other places. Taxi drivers don't know of it and can't find it most of the time. Delivery is always cold by the time food comes. Roads are shitty and waterlogged, when people come over for the first time I'd say 20% of them end up in a ditch or broken something on their car.
Up to 300kb/s so I've got that going for me now.
>tfw landlord finally updated bandwidth limits to my ping can be 30 instead of 350.
Come live in yurop. We got fiber optic internet everywhere, and speeds like that aren't even the premium plans. Hell, I've got a mid-tier plan from my ISP and my average DL speed is around 8 MB/s.
i feel sorry for people with shit internet i really do.
i cant even download at my maximum download speed couse my disk is throttling
>tfw 2GB down 1.5GB up downloading vidya and hentai at light speeds
Thank you anon.
It takes a while to load, even light webpages like 4chan, but once it loads once, it becomes relatively faster.
The thing is, i don't have a wired connection. There's no provider available in my zone, so i have to use my phone and tethering.
>up until two weeks ago, my village had a max of 17kb/s
Did you use a shoestring for a cable or something? How the fuck is that even technologically possible? Even the shittiest copper telephone cables from over a hundred years ago can carry more data than that.
my internet is 100 MBPS now, but I remember in the early 2000s having to wait days (sometimes weeks) for multiple GB files to finish
I appreciated everything I downloaded so much more back then
Who are you with, lad? I'm still living at home and am getting 150 Kb/s with IFA telecom (so eircom). Nobody else fucking covers my shitty area (I'm only an hour and a half from Dublin...).
Are you out in the country or in a small town or where?
>tfw i used to have 1 kb/s connection
>every webpage was loading for 3 minutes
>couldn't even connect to steam with my client
Doing much better now though, but the past was painful
how is that even possible
HughesNet here I only get 65 Gigs a month and I am living out here in the country. When my data is gone *which during the day I only have 15 gigs* My downloads go to the peak of 17.9 KBPS.
And I pay over $130 for it. Is there any alternative for someone in a rural area? Specifically Marcellus Michigan?
>mfw just upgraded to fibre from shitty 100kbps nz internet
EU grant money helped a lot of eastern euro shitholes develop kinda sweet communication networks, including fiber optic internet everywhere.
Third world doesn't mean a poor country. I simply means a country that wasn't with either the US or the USSR during the cold war.
>live with parents
>offer to pay for better Internet
>"we don't need better Internet and we don't plan on having you live here much longer anyway."
Depends, but generally it's not *that* bad. I'm from australia but last time I was there I had dial up.
Most downloads capped out at about 600 kbps, you'd be lucky to get 1MB on a good torrent. Fibre is about average american cable speeds.
I've just got back into Auckland after being up north for a month and fuck me its good to be back.
500kb/s feels like lightning speed. Hopefully sorting out something decent when I move into the new flat next week.
Speeds are generally alright in Chch/Welly/Auckland but anywhere rural is likely gonna be total shit. In the cities where the speed is acceptable, the cost/usage is a joke.
Already have looked up Team Fiber. So far...I can't go out and tell other peeps about it to speed it up so I can get in the area. It sucks man.
I just hope I can get away from this Satellite hell I am in. Its like...I miss playing Multiplayer man. So fun making new pals and rivals and shit.
sometimes the economic conditions dont make it favorable to move out anon, don't be rude, i'm sure he doesnt want to hear them bitch about how his body pillows are creeping them out either
mfw I thought my past 454 kb speed was bad.
Thank god I'm up to 5mb now
Doesn't matter. The Worlds describe political ties and economic systems. The 3rd World label is reserved for countries who sought to appease both the United States and the Soviet Union, or countries that sought to appease neither power.
I upgraded several months ago from subhuman ADSL 20MB/1MB to 120MB/10MB fiber and it's fucking great. It's taken me several years to finally get a fucking ISP to get me fiber, I don't understand why, when everyone in the block had it for 3 years now and I live in the fucking capital.
Even still, this offer is not the best, the current plans are around 300MB/300MB, which I'd love to have, but the one I have now is enough for what I do.
