Is that over Coax? That is VERY good latency

yeah, coax. insanity. having lowest ping in any game lobby is insane. I'm very spoiled. this is actually kind of slow for me, I usually top out at 300mbps. but im on wifi

$10 says you have fiber to the tap, so its probably only coax over a very short distance

 

Neat! Now if only they could increase upload speeds. What package are you on? I am also on the 250/25 package, but it has been discontinued and replaced with the 400/10 here in Texas

I'm Atlanta GA. fiber runs up to the building and then it's 20 feet of coax. I'm on the 250/25 plan but I get 300/24 idk. xfinity is a dream, my old connection ATT was illegally charging too much. they would give us these crappy routers that topped at 40mbps. now that I think about it, 24 up kinda sucks. not much I can do I guess

Finally got gigabit speeds at home! The plan is 950/300, but I think Telus provisioned my upload speeds incorrectly [my old plan (300/300) had faster uploads]. The downloads are now fast enough that I'm able to notice congestion between my ISP and other ISPs here in Vancouver [if traffic goes via transit instead of peering (either at an IXP or privately)].

 

I'm paying basically 50% more for internet though. CA$237 per month for this internet connection alone. However, it is a (smb) business connection with "static" IPs.

 

My biggest frustration (aside from the botched upload speeds and transit congestion) is the lack of IPv6 support even though customers with dynamic IPs are getting IPv6 via DHCPv6-PD.

Ran my network speed test using two different programs, similar'ish results I guess....

And this was with ookla...

Why the heck is my upload speed faster? Should it be the other way around? 😓

The result below was done on my other rig, via wireless dongle....not too bad, good enough for watching Netflix, without any latency.

This is more the kind of result I'd expected, where the DL speed is faster than the UL speed.....

Down here in Australia, we are only just getting speeds that other countries would have had years ago. Gigabit will be another decade.

Eh not bad, probably would get better results over Ethernet then my iPhone SE’a WiFi

I hate my ISP but I have no other choice. I could tolerate it more if I had unlimited but I only get 500gbs a month 

Screenshot (3).png

500 GB per month is basically unlimited if your internet speeds are around 1.5mbps up/down.

 

1.5mbps ~ 0.19 MB/s

0.19MB/s * 3600 secs (in an hour) * 720 hours (in a month) = 492480 MB

~ 492 GB per month (unidirectional)

 

If you saturate your internet connection both ways at greater than 55% for the entire month, then yes, you could exceed your cap. But with a connection that slow it doesn't seem like a good idea to do that, even with QoS.

It's ok for our usecase right now but we're actually getting Fiber in about a year or so and that will mean 1000 Mbps up and down symmetric !

I've got Virgin Media's Fibre 100 package, which is supposed to offer 100Mbps

My PC is now upstairs, which makes the speed suffer.

When I was near the router I used to get ~110Mbps but now I get 81Mbps (it's noticeable!)
