Okay so my situation is a bit complicated...

I live in a small village in France, and I'm far from the DSLAM situated in the middle of the village

My ADSL2+ / VDSL speed is in the neighborhood of 12/15 down and 1 up (the technician managed to get 19 one day, just by moving the TV and server boxes)

So I use my 4G (no band aggregation for my phone) and I get 90/30

But with band aggregation I get around 130/50, and even more with 3-band aggregation

Moreover, my ISP (Free) is linking our small village to fiber and I'll get 8Gbps soon

I was thinking about asking you guys about a luxury problem.


I currently pay for a 100/100 connection (about $35 US) and can’t decide if I should upgrade to a 250/250 connection (extra $10 US) or 500\500 (extra $12 US).


Most of the time what I have is enough but there are occations more would be nice.

Any toughts?


(I can get at most 1000\1000 for a total of $63 US)

Paying for 350/35, so not too bad. I'd happily lose half the download for twice the upload, but it's reliable enough that I don't mind, and not having any data caps is a blessing!


Having said that, the Hub 3.0 (I think it's Samsung tech underneath) is *actually* a steaming pile of shit with electricity running through it. :)

I'm British as well, have you not had the upgrade to 500Mb yet from Virgin? 1.1Gb is currently being rolled out, my 19y/o nephew's area near Birmingham is now apparently enabled for it but... long story, don't wanna bore anyone!


Anyways, this is what I've had for the last 4 years currently at £45/month.

FTTB - fibre to the apartment building, then Cat 5e ethernet cable to each apartment.

Poland here, living in a small village next to the Czech border and for the last ~25 years I was stuck with a telephone line copper wire. At first it was ~1.5 USD per hour on a simple 28kbits modem, than ~2004 they provided unlimited 128kbits (don't remember the price, I wasn't paying the bills) upgraded to 256kbits, 512kbits, 1024... and finally around 2009 they maximized the speed of the hardware to it's limits at 20mbits down / 1mbit up that I had since.


Half a year ago, finally, freaking FINALLY, fiber connections started to appear here, four providers in a matter of months, so I took the cheapest one and am happily using it since february, 600/60 line for ~15 USD and it seems stable. Coulda get the 1GB for ~20 USD, but I figured, how will I use it?

I think the last two upgrades we actually asked for, still got them for free, but before that it was automatic and we'd get a letter & email soon after. Fingers crossed they'll do that this time :D

maybe it all is just tubes. (1G/1G) 79.99/mo, 9.99 Static IP fee, 9.99 tech fee (even with your own equipment, this is a Prepay for any service you may need to have done,  recently had them repull my 1500ft fiber drop from the hub to my house for free.)
