Why can us England people not have this internet?

Recommended Posts

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.

 

I live IN a grade 2 listed building, I think the issue comes from street access in most cases. My brother tried getting VM installed in his last house, he came home in time to see them drilling into the wall of the house opposite, when they realised their mistake and did some checking, turned out he couldn't get it on his side. I don't know if you can check anywhere online or if you'd have to get an engineer out to tell you in person.

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

This is where the really expensive comes in, YOU pay for placing the fibre optics :D

no. i have 270 mbit up and down for 10€a month in Latvia.

It can also be very cheap ;)

 

You're just lucky enough to already have the infrastructure.

I'm pretty sure that if you would have lived in London you would have gigabit internet?

I think the correct title should be...

 

Why can't us England people not have this internet?

 

We all want this internet :3

 

I don't want it. MY 200Mb/s internet is already overkill.

 

100-120Mb/s is sweet spot.

 

Other then downloading games from Steam/Uplay/Origin there is not really a use for faster internet  :)

That's because they are noobs who use wi-fi. Online games don't require more then a 1Mb/s

Britain 3rd world country confirmed.

That's about what I'm getting, however my ping is 41-even if the server is close. And said ping goes up to around 200 at night.
