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.

Stuck with 100Mb since the building won't get the SoNet 2GB service.  That would have been fun.

Oh well, at $20/month I can't complain.  Would be interesting to see what everyone is paying for their service.   Only a few have listed what their cost is.

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.

I this is TWC's mid-tier service.  Highway robbery, I tell ya.

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).

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!

Almost in the running for fastest in Canada? Maybe?
2013-09-23 09:31:40 AM

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.
2013-09-23 04:58:34 PM

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.
