30 down and 8 up with Cox for $65/month. The only streaming I do is YouTube, which works fine.
You must be almost as 'far from the exchange' as me! (see post 9) I know we're in the minority both on this site and in the real world (I'm told that only 5% of the UK is left with speeds less than 2megs) but unless there is massive investment to link us up to fibre and faster speeds, we need physical media to survive!
I could get faster, but I can't justify the cost if all I'm doing is e-mail and online shopping.
27 down / 9 up
Which is very good for this area of the UK! There's certainly no way of me getting any better speeds.
6 down / 1.5 up terrestrial line-of-sight wireless for $100/mo. My ISP is absolutely raking us over the coals but our only other option is dial-up or satellite with low data caps, even lower speeds and higher prices.
Just got back from a week in the Dominican Republic. Speed matters.
3 Mbs. on a good day from CenturyLink. It sucks and I'll be switching to Comcast/Xfinity later this month. Can't stand them, but they do provide much faster service.
Try to watch a TV show or movie, it's ridiculous. Walk away for about 20 minutes to let the buffer fill up. Even then you catch up with the data and have to wait again.
Dish for TV, which is great. This was part of one of their "triple play" promotions, TV, internet and phone, but they farm out the internet and phone to CenturyLink. They advertise great speeds, but in tiny print, the little gotcha, "not always guaranteed, possibly slower, etc..." I forget the exact words, but I certainly got the slower part of things.
My cable internet connection used to be 30/2 but Mediacom upgraded their network in my area in January so speed increased to 60/5 for $5 more bringing it to $55 a month. I would regularly see 28Mbps before the upgrade and now I get around 80Mbps. Seeing as how Netflix HD maxes out at around 7Mbps I'm not sure the speed increase is relevant but my usage limit of 250GB is starting to get tight. My usage used to be around 150-175GB until I got a Roku 3 late last year so now I'm using about 240GB on average. I may have to look into the next tier if my streaming habits increase!
TWC/Spectrum Ultimate 200 level 230up/23down on speedtest averages. (max here should be a little over 300 down)
Saw no real benefit to 100 to 200 for an extra $10 per month so just dropped that boost. Today running 120/12
Hard to say what Ultimate 100 cost is since it's bundled into a Triple Play, but $40/month might be about right.
