For me the punchline is in the location, rather than the speed!  Grin

Yes, it's surprising/amusing that an ISP in the US is giving you those speeds.

Wow! Now I'm really jealous!

Verizon FiOS? We have them here but I have been reluctant to switch since they were such a horrible phone company for so many years here. (Landline, that is).

Thanks!

LOL You guys...

I'd been with the DLS since 1998, but they just didn't keep up with the times. So I've been watching this new fiber service for about 2 years now and decided it was time to take the plunge after they left me hanging about a month ago.

So speed tests are fun, but they don't really show what'll happen when you're do an actual download. So I timed one:




942MB in under 4min ... I'm ok with that.

Thoroughly pissed off ...

Over the last week my broadband speed has dropped from a steady 6Mb/s+ speed (usually around 6.5) to between 1 and 2Mb/s. Apparently my ISP has checked my line and it doesn't support higher speeds. When I pointed out that for the last 4 years I have been steadily about 6Mb/s they looked at my record and agreed to reprofile my line to try to restore that speed.

Reprofiling is supposed to have been completed today - now it seems to be running at 1Mb/s.

As I said - thoroughly pissed off!

Been a while, but might as well keep it all in the same thread...

I'm on a shared connection over Wi-Fi at a hotel in Ho Chi Minh:



Wish I got that at home... Sad

Thoroughly pissed off ...

Update: Forgot to update this after three weeks of daily calls to a Mumbai call centre I finally got them to reprofile properly and am not getting about 7.2mbps.

Its interesting that I have been looking at others' speeds using the same ISP off the same exchange and whilst I am by far the furthest I have checked from the exchange I get consistently much faster speeds. One friend could hit the exchange with a rock out of his window and only gets 2mbps. Shows it pays to have the argument.

Interesting that your upload speed is SO much higher than download speed??? Doesn't look quite right to me!
