I used to work in the NIH, which was a node on the experimental 'Internet 2' hi-speed network for research & education.  Even 10 years ago I could get synchronous 300 megabit or better, 5 hops from the boundary - Gigabit ethernet was in its infancy.

I have a Karma and FreedomPOP, both little 4G hotspots.  Not going to burn any data on the test today, but normally get around 15d 3u.  Works Ok on 4g.  3g gets maybe 3 down and 1 up.  They use the Sprint 4g network

Yes, because the browser has so much to do with speed.

I especially enjoyed their rationale for not having a status bar.  "The browser is so fast that you don't need it."

This was better than I expected, which is to say, it's the amount I'm actually paying for (at $50/month). Weekday evenings can be atrocious -- half a minute just to load Google, and Netflix is a laughable thought -- but mid-day Sunday is quite unobjectionable.

OpenBand is fiber to the door.  Weird local ISP that wired a few neighborhoods in Northern VA in the mid-2000s.  Yup, fiber in 2005.  Problem is, they bundle it with phone, shiatty television, and make it part of the HOA fees.  Top it off with a 99 year Hong-Kong like exclusivity agreement and you're stuck with one HBO HD channel, no AMC HD, and a bunch of other crap for $200+ a month.  At least when I pay $32 to download a season of Breaking Bad, each episode downloads in a minute or two.

Here in the USA, cable companies get away with charging much more for speeds like that. Where I am, a $20 internet-only package from Time Warner Cable will get you a measly 1.5Mbps, and a more usable 15Mbps is $50. My prediction is that although services like Google Fiber will change this practice within the next few decades, cable companies will try to fight against competition from those services for a while instead of changing what they offer.

Not feeling too bad amongst these results, and tomorrow morning I switch to 50/25 FIOS, so it might go up (but they never deliver as much as they promise).

Google Fiber FTW

Christ I hate you.... At home the best I get is perhaps 30Mb/s. I get totally spoiled at work since there we get 650-800Mb/s on average  >_<

And I want to ditch Comcast with a burning, red hot desire.


I would kill for Comcast. I barely get over 1mb with a 5 mb service.
I have wifi turned off on my phone because it slows it down

My office pays for 60mbit each way, delivered via microwave. That's not the max speed, and we're on an isolated link. We can burst up to a sustained 85mbit each way.

It's humming along tonight. It's not normally this fast. They must have known that Fark was running this survey.

I get .73 megabit down and .3 to .4 something up.  BEAT THAT!!!!!  $22 a month Verizon DSL resold by a third party with much better policies.  Only they don't offer this speed anymore.  The only reason I still have it is because I got it while they still offered it.  Now they want $30 a month for 1 megabit.   Damn the US government for allowing companies to call this shiat broadband.

And hey!  WTF is up with Verizon getting to claim their shiat-for-fiber service FIOS is the fastest in the nation?  It's not even 1/5 the speed of Google Fiber at its fastest!

Considering that Google has 1 gigabit speeds and Japan has 2, I say anything less than gigabit speeds is wasting my time for a fiber network.

And how about that "fiber-rich" Time Warner Cable network with it's shiat 50 megabit max speed?  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

The server in New Orleans is hosted by "Cox Business Solutions".  So much for trying to end run the carriers so they won't screw with the results.

Actually happy fine with my service, but this does not seem like a truly independent test.

I was wrong about work. We use a private ASN with our carrier. Company name obfuscated.

To be fair I'm on a work connection (so pretty much cheating massively), but looks like I have the fasted download speeds.  I have about 50 mb/s download and 25 mb/s upload at home.
 
2013-09-23 05:05:21 PM  
Guess I didn't check thread carefully enough before my bold declaration.  One google fiber user is stopping those speeds I have at work, and the guy on the University of MN campus is also topping these speeds.

Anything over 50 mb/s is probably overkill however, as you're heavily dependent on the upload speeds of whatever service/process you're receiving data from.

5 mbs up 1 down, cheapest I can get where I live.
