I can't believe I've been living without cable internet for this long.

Our cable company recently increased its offered speeds. When I first got to Alaska, you could only purchase unlimited internet with a special package that included television and phone. The speed included in the package at the time was only 2Mbps.

Since at the time I didn't really feel the need for cable television, I ignored the package and went with AT&T WiMAX internet instead. I got 2Mbps, and I didn't have to worry about purchasing other services.

Then, in February, I broke down and purchased cable television because I like having access to news and other programs. However, instead of getting the package, I kept my internet with AT&T.

When I read that the cable company was finally offering higher speeds, I took a look at my expenditures and discovered that I was seriously overpaying for both television and internet because I was buying them from two separate companies.

The default package from the cable company now offers 4Mbps by default, but now also allows you to pay more for higher speeds. I now get 10Mbps with unlimited downloads. It's great!

Do you actually get those speeds though? I don't know how it works in Alaska, but in the UK, you have to be living within spitting distance of the phone line exchange to get the full speed you're paying for.

I actually have, and I'm surprised that I have been. I'd be happy with even half that, since it'd still be more than I had been getting before, but after testing it out at different times throughout the day, the speeds have been consistent.

Teehee. I can't resist but posting this:

I'm paying $20 a month for this (I get 10 public IPs too), and I have no download or upload caps.

Image
It's difficult to find a speedtest server that seems to be able to handle my upload speed. It should be able to do the same as download (and I've seen this happen). Speedtest.net's servers can't handle it, apparently.

This just makes my very poor internet seem even more depressing....

Image

I get internet included in my rent, but as it's completely unusable for watching tv online (unless you want to sit and wait a half hour before watching a half hour show to allow for buffering) I ended up getting a mobile broadband dongle for £15/month because it gets considerably better speeds...which still are a fraction of what you guys are posting. (It's in my housemate's room at the moment, or I'd post a speedtest from that as well.)

LUXURY! When I were a lad, we used to dream of buffering. Instead, if our Internet video played faster than it downloaded, the computer would flash a picture of goatse and then blow up with the force of 15 tons of TNT.

/me evenutally catches up with the bandwagon that passed a while ago:

Here's some (apparently better than average) Mobile broadband results. These are taken at 41% UMTS signal strength - speed appears to decrease roughly proportionally (although I've not tested this) with signal strength. And, of course, the type of connection available.

(Advertised as 12/2 Mbps, so pretty close.)

Not even that bad, but it's quite expensive (€27.95/mo). The same ISP does offer much better rates, going up to 80/6 Mbps at €74.95/mo, but that's way too steep for me. Other providers in my region aren't much better, either.

Yes, but imagine what that would do to your ping.

Incidently, I can't figure out why I'm not getting closer to 100/100 to our server. More investigation is required.

The upload is why I suck at torrents. And the download is fine for my uses, the usual bandwidth heavy stuff usually clogs up in Linux Flash more than in the tubes...

ISPs that limit upload speed suck (let alone putting in place transfer caps). But then, that's what you get when your ISP sells more capacity than it can produce.
