I'm not new to seeing 900 down (have 1gbit) but symmetrical is impressive (get 50 up).

I'm to cheap to pay for 4Gbit/4Gbit here, plus I dont want to invest in 10Gbit networking right now

Dang bro where do you live?

i got 1Gig down/0,0Gig up today but that seems slow compared to you

 

ok nobody needs even my speed BUUUUT it’s nice

New Zealand. Hardware is expensive here, but at least internet is cheap and unlimited 😄

I don't pay anything, but its $90/m (US $57). 4Gbit is $190/m (US $121) though

I remember the time, at the beginning of the century when I was glad to have a 256 kbit dowload. Not 100Mbit down and 20Mbit up is very-very good.


... but I'm no expert

The first non dial up connection I got at home was 128/128 kbps

Comcast my provider was nice enough to raise the cap from 1TB to 1.2 TB of data monthly. How nice and thoughtful of them.

HOLYYY is that in the US and wich connection type is that?
I mean mine is around the same speeds but I pay a converted 70$/month. Based in the EU and its over DOCSIS3.1

Your upstream and ping cannot be in the same ballpark as that because DOCSIS 3.1 is not made for that upload speed. But, look closely, and you'll see that his provider is "Digi" which is in Romania (Bucharest is the capital city of Romania). In Eastern Europe it is standard for fiber to be relatively available and dirt cheap compared to other countries.

That's mine and it costs, if you convert it to US$, approximately 50US$. I could have Vodafone and their "Gigabit Coax-Fiber" connection for the same price but these are SO MASSIVELY overbooked that in the prime time you'll mostly end up with less than 10 Mbit/s and horrendous ping times.

I am booked to a 100/40 VDSL Vectoring connection that, due to the VDSL stations being Broadcom-driven but literally no router manufacturer using Broadcom SoCs/modems, is connected at 100/32 Mbit/s and the connection based off Telekoms automatic DSL bundle assessment (they call it ASSIA) limited to exact sync values of 100000/32000 kbit/s. Broadcom modems are usually significantly better and the Telekom used them in their own routers once, but they also took the step to Lantiq (now they're owned by Intel and the modems are called Lantiq GRX-***) (presumably because Broadcom is supposed to be massively constricting the software development around their modems) which always work worse on German VDSL connections because the majority of German Telekom DSL hardware being Broadcom-driven.

According to the spec it can do that upload. It’s just most cable providers choose to focus on the Downstream side and network upgrades.

Yup. The issue here in Germany is the fact that Vodafone is the sole owner of basically all of Germanys coax cable network (yeah, authorities are supposed to be against monopolies and the Telekom, due to the only one really laying out cables, is being monitored and has to share and rent their connections to other providers, but Vodafone with an absolute monopoly does not and no one bats an eye. Nice.) and they have, in my area, multiple thousands of households that are technically equipped for DOCSIS 3.1, yet in my area they are only using 20 freaking channels (which themselves barely qualify for 10 Gbit/s that the spec allows for 1 Gbit/s per person) for all of the dozens or few hundreds of people that are connected to a single CMTS (cable modem termination system). They thus use 160 MHz and a range of 170-322 MHz (meaning the last channel tops off at 330MHz before it goes over to TV transmission) and that is supposed to be sufficient for dozens or hundreds of users that ordered a Gigabit connection. And based on how unwilling and greedy ISPs are I would assume that this massive overbooking is a significant problem in cable networks all over the world. The specs in theory are good, if anybody would be guaranteed to get what they are being advertised. This problem would keep me from going to cable. It promises obscene speeds for relatively low prices but is unreliable AF. I would pick even a 50 Mbit/s VDSL connection over a Gigabit cable (coax) connection every time. With cable you share all the connections with everybody else while the "last mile" on DSL belongs to just you, and you ALWAYS get what you pay for and with what speed your router syncs. This is basically impossible to constantly achieve on cable.
