    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.
