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

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

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.

::'( wish I had any where near that speed.
Bell optic network? only in Ontario ::'(
Once got up to 7 Mb/s
Fiber connection to Cogent.  That's for internet only, we have a few links via other providers for research with other universities.

What kind of plan do you have with Telus?  I see on their website that "High Speed" is between 1.5 to 6.0Mbps.  If you are not getting the maximum, either something is weird with your wiring, or Telus is not doing a very good job.

actually I have the top of what i can get from around here. they say we top out at about 3.0 here. Small cities have their advantages, internet speed is not one of them.

Though, we could get up to 1 Gb/s for thousands of dollars in AB with the Super Net.
