Why can us England people not have this internet?

Recommended Posts

Guess I'm really lucky to have this speed in the UK

Same here in the US.   When I move though I'm getting googe fiber.

Unfortunately this is the best consumer internet you can get from an affordable standpoint :/

Why in the name of god aren't people starting their own internet service providers?

 

Seriously, in the US, with the way the established companies act, you could put them ALL out of business by offering decent service, at a similar price.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

Romania didn't even have copper lines in a large part of the country, and when they finally started investing in their telecom networks, they just went straight for full fibre coverage, it's as simple as that.

Ya, here it's like 105 for that.  My dad pays the bill, but I'm buying the new router for us tomorrow to fix the latency and connection issues.    I can't get Google Fiber in my state though, so when I move to a different state I can.  I wish they'd push it to more locations.

trust me you can't its quite sad I live in a nice part of a Liverpool (a really big city in the UK) and still there's no fibre optic around here! The highest speed possible in 80% of the UK is 17 mbps

 

Have you considered virgin media. I've got it in Liverpool and it's pretty bloody quick even for their lowest offering, plus they're getting a doubling of speed in less than a year.

India is ranked No.5 in slowest internet connection as far as a nation goes, so just imagine how unbearable Internet we have here.

 

Top 10 countries with slowest internet listed here : http://www.elist10.com/worlds-top-10-countries-slow-internet-connection/

Well, Romania is ranked №5 in fastest internet connection according same site: http://www.elist10.com/worlds-top-10-countries-with-fast-internet-connection/

PS: Lucky me, my country is in "fast internet" list too  :D

Imagine the costs of cutting down trees, locating the remains of the mines when digging cables etc.

Look at how its being installed, current infrastructure is being used where possible.

We've been with Virginmedia since they bought out Telewest, as such they love us and keep giving us free upgrades and about 25% off the package rates per month.

 

4630579523.png

 

We live down a dead-end road (it ends in a church & graveyard, can't be more literal than that) and are the only customers, so we have 0 line contention and our own routy-box-ixp-thingy-do, I've seen it hit 165u - 15d before.

 

 

You can get super-uber business lines in the UK that go at ludicrous speeds, but they're so expensive you really need to be a business to justify the cost... or just incredibly rich, but then I guess you'd be busy being rich and not caring too much about the internet.

 

But as has already been said, if you're in England and not in a major city, VM is probably your best bet for consistent speeds and responsive customer support.

Thats lower than my ADSL connection from Plusnet in Cornwall lol. I have 16down (99% of time), 1.6up (if im lucky).

Virgin and BT have pretty good speeds tbh. U can still move couple of streets up or down to get better internet.

And most packages require us to have absolutely useless landlines that nobody uses...

I live near a grade 1 or 2 listed building so maybe that's the reason I can't get it. On talktalk when I'm playing Xbox its fine and then out of the blue it'll lag me out of the game.

No offense, but you don't get to complain.

My connection is pretty bad aka sucks a**, but it's not even near what some people have.

And yes I do have the max possible thing, but the copper wire loss is pretty bad since I'm quite far from the base station.
