How fast is your internet?
« on: September 14, 2007, 09:10:29 pm »
Whats your average download speeds? Capped? Slow? Throttled? Still on dial up? Sucks like shit?

For me, my Cable Provider (Eastlink) gives me 15Mbit down / 1 Mbit up
Too bad my upload sucks :(

I'll get anywhere from 600 - 1500KB/s depending on where I download

For example, I was downloading Sky Girls ep 8 just now

[16:01] DCC Get of [Ayako]_Sky_Girls_-_08v2_XVID_[0C3917F5].avi from Ayako|Archives complete (00:03:18 915 KB/Sec)




DVD Backlog: Galaxy Angel (all of them), GITS: SAC, Juuni Kokki, Last Exile, Master Keaton, Rurouni Kenshin TV, Saber Marionette J, Saber Marionette J Again, Saber Marionette J to X, Slayers (The), Slayers Next, Slayers Try.

I can download between 30-40 mb in under 3 secs at times but it really varies... at times it's less than 300 kb/s can you believe it ~_~?

My college hates everything I'd do on the internet anyway. Oh well. >>

I have 20/5mb from Verizon FiOS. At just $44 a month, cant go wrong. Been considering getting their televison service as well since it comes with azntv and the funimation channel.

Well, the verdict is in... SBC Lightspeed is roughly half the speed of optimum online... So Maaya is back but she's gonna be half the speed :/

Here in cologne/germany its fibre-to-the-home with flat, 100MBit down  / 10Mbit up, but at a roaring monthly cost of 59 Euros (about 38 USD).

Slowest speed available (and I think we will at least temporarely change to that because we hardly never use the 100/10) is 6500k/650k flat for 17 Euros (about 10 USD).

Because were often away for business for days, speed is not that important for anime/dorama... theres time enough for all the torrents to finish until were back home... and I hate to pay for idle time... 8)

There are lots of broadband providers,which don’t have a 30 GB cap.Shaw High Speed, for example,has a very reasonable 60 GB.I’ve read about them throttling,but I can get decent speed with them.
