    What are you guys complaining? I've managed just fine with this kind of speeds. :p

    This is with a Huawei E160 3G usb-stick and about the max continous (pretty close to what is promised). I've never had anything but a wireless connection, started with a mobile phone as a 2G-modem back in 2003. At first the speeds were at 14 kbps, a few years ago we finally got the 3G connections up here and I've had the stick for a bit over two years.

    Sorry Lurvio, it's my weird sense of stupidity.
    It means the internet speed is so slow you had to post it last year to get it here on time.

    Well, I kinda guessed that, as I did not find an earlier post. :)

    When I win the local lottery, I'll have an optical fibre set up to my house. Won't be a cheap one.

    I had a problem with my PowerPoint. So microsoft technical services remotely took over my desktop...they removed the whole Office and then reloaded it with an update i couldn't find.

    The Office 2007 (which I have) of some 320MB took around 20 seconds to download from their site....neat :)
    Thought it would have been faster though.. :p

    Fios fiber optic- Not lightning fast but good enough to not stumble over just about any content on net.

    SheetWise All Beach -- No Water.

    About 15Mbps up and 10 down -- your chart seems to imply that T1 service is faster than cable -- I think you'll find most cable is faster than T1.

    http://www.speedtest.net/ gave me on supposedly asdl2+ using PigBond.com.au
    ping = 38 ms
    down = 18.35 Mbps
    up = 0.85 Mbps

    - But when the school kids in the local area start playing computer/online games a pre 1960's fax without paper would be faster

    ADSL, country town, 2+Mb down and 1/2+Mb up, very reliable and fairly cheap, forum pages come up in about 1 sec which is good enough for me. A lot of sites are slower than the line so more speed will not net me anything.
