How much your internet connection? (mounth) Is flat (24h/24h or "@connection_time"?
In italy is about 20€/mounth for flat connection.

However, those numbers are a lie.  My ISP has a service call "Speed Boost"  Which allow small downloads to go really fast.  Which basically fools speed tests into thinking my internet connection is better than it really is.   I more typically get somewhere between 6down/0.5 up and 8 down/1.0 up for larger/longer downloads.

A spanish connection, it's slow and quite expensive; it's 42€/month while you can find better connections at 30€ aprox., but it's still far much more reliable than competitors. Three or four years ago this company was the only option, and was same price for 1 Mbit. Really sucks >:(

Wow, that price really does suck. What I posted costs about half (after conversion), with free router and IP phone adapter, and did I mention zero cost calls within network? Actually this is at my grandma's ;D I guess they can keep the price so low when they connect blocks of flats, some 30 households in one go...

What I have at home is slightly slower and without these perks, but still good. Telefonica as well.

Yeah, that price also includes spanish calls. But you've to add about 15€ more for line mantainance costs... per month!!!

Telefonica? Good luck for you.

We know Telefonica very well here in my state (State of São Paulo, Brazil). >_>

ANATEL (National Agency of Telecommunications) prohibited Telefonica from selling the Speed (an Internet booster used to speed up dial-up connections) due to constant service breakdowns in whole state; besides a very bad telephone service. A state of 35,000,000 inhabitants is suffering in Telefonica's hands.

Particularly, I pay ~US$40 for a 300kbps radio connection, I don't use and don't want to buy Speed because I don't want and don't need a telephone where I live. A mobile is enough for me.

Little bit faster than I normally see... 250GB/mo cap, which is not bad for the US. $55/mo, and that's only because I also have cable. It'd be $75/mo otherwise.

The US lags behind many places, which is frustrating.

Combuijs, you'll probably live in Son & Breughel, connected by KPN Glasvezel, bronze triple play for 65 Euro/month? I can't see any ADSL2+ connection offering you this speed.

Here's mine, I got VDSL2 but watching HDTV (IPTV) right now, they sold it as a 12mbit line, which only reaches that speed with not watching TV.

Well spotted! Though the village is called Son & Breugel and it's silver triple play for 15 more. No BBC 1 and 2 unfortunately, which is the major drawback. I confess, 34Mb is a bit overdone, on most websites you won't reach (and need...) that speed.

After reading this thread I wanted to test a Virtual Private Server I have access to, but since I only have remote ssh access, I don't have access  to a web browser with flash, so I googled, "bandwidth test using lynx"  and I came across the suggesting to run, "wget http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test" from the command line.

So I did, and here are the results:
Code: [Select]
mwoodburn@li64-196:~> wget http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test
--08:42:35--  http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test
           => `100mb.test.5'
Resolving cachefly.cachefly.net... 205.234.175.175
Connecting to cachefly.cachefly.net|205.234.175.175|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 104,857,600 (100M) [application/octet-stream]

100%[====================================>] 104,857,600   83.84M/s

08:42:36 (83.78 MB/s) - `100mb.test.5' saved [104857600/104857600]
 
That is  670.24 MBps!   A traceroute shows I am only five hops from cachefly, and more than likely in the same building as them.

I only have remote ssh access,

For the fun of it, I decided to test my two servers, http://MesquiteServer.com/ and http://MockingBirdServer.com/

Both have a 10Mbs port.

Mesquite - my primary:

Code: [Select]
--14:17:07--  http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test
Resolving cachefly.cachefly.net... 205.234.175.175

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 104857600 (100M) [application/octet-stream]
Saving to: `100mb.test'

100%[=======================================>] 104,857,600 1.13M/s   in 90s

14:18:37 (1.11 MB/s) - `100mb.test' saved [104857600/104857600]

Mockingbird, my secondary:

Code: [Select]
--14:17:10--  http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test
           => `100mb.test'
Resolving cachefly.cachefly.net... 205.234.175.175

Length: 104,857,600 (100M) [application/octet-stream]

100%[====================================>] 104,857,600    1.13M/s    ETA 00:00

14:18:39 (1.12 MB/s) - `100mb.test' saved [104857600/104857600]

So, yeah. Perfectly on spec. hehe.
