Provided by my city and dependent on my income, it will only cost $10/mo! Can you believe that? And it's not a limited or "special" offer. That's the rate for people in my income bracket going forward. My neighborhood was the first outside of completely new construction to have the fiber installed since we have the lowest broadband subscription rate citywide. Comcast offers service for that price, but I think it's 25 Mbps if I understood the speedtest and remember correctly. Oh, and Comcast recently doubled their speed.

Good speed for most of the streaming services that I use - and about 25 times as fast my connection was on ADSL.

Jeez... I pay $50/month for 6 Mbps down/1 Mbps up.

I was doing that for a while, simply to avoid Comcast. But when we cut the cord, it wasn't working any longer. But I'm paying for a business line at 50mbps simply to avoid data caps.

Wow, we're pretty happy with our speeds (for the most part) but apparently we've fallen to the wayside compared to you guys (paying the equivalent of about $50 US).

Huge gaps here. :satstunned:
Less than 32 mbit shouldn't be tolerable anymore, anywhere. At the latest, not in times of Covid.

I last year finally upgraded my broadband service which was without a change active since 2009 (!!) - an offer which was pretty nice back in the day, 32 mbps for 30 Euros a month, including a flatrate for telephone calls, how's that?!
Switched to 200 mbit for also 20 or 30 Euros a month. Germany is rather expensive when it comes to that. :mellow: Upstream also could be better, but hey.

I think it's amazing being able to stream stuff in 4K without much buffering.

I just tried again and got something around 40 Mbps down and 9 Mbps up so maybe my modem was just having 'a moment'. Part of the problem is me, I'm supposed to have 75 Mbps as part of my plan, but I still have an old modem only capable of 60 Mbps transfer. Someday I'll bite the bullet and get a new one. But for now, my partner and I can both have Zoom sessions going (with video) without any issues, and that's about the heaviest use for us, so I'm not feeling the urge yet to change.

Still, I feel I'm behind the times, especially considering network R&D is my job. Every day I'm working with modems capable of 800 Gbps over long distances (for ISPs, not for individuals, of course! I was a part of this field trial last year). It just doesn't seem to give me the itch for faster internet though, I don't know why.

Upload is 50% slower than my old ISP (capped @500, before it reached 1000 with ease)
