    My internet is artificially limited to 300/300.

    When you have fttp the speeds that can be provided are often prevented, ISPs have crazy profit margins and they all need a spanking to upgrade infrastructure and exchange equipment.

    They can afford to upgrade cities in the uk to 1000/1000 and still retain an 80% profit margin (learned this in my job recently)

    2 months ago I upgraded my plan to a theoretically higher speed for lower price. For those 2 months it stuck at the regular 1.5mbps getting around 140kbps. Pretty annoyed.

    Last night 9mb down 0.8mb up. Yew!

    Through steam I ended up with 1.7megabytes down. I must have misinterpreted the speed test result.

    Still, that is magnitudes faster than what I had before. It feels strange being able to download things so quickly now.

    I lived with adsl for 7-8 years everytime it rained or was very hot outside my net would go out. I live an area with no competition. I have Charter for cable (very high prices) but no Time Warner Cable or Comcast. The only Fiber here is AT&T U-Verse with a 250-300GB cap and verizon is selling its FIOS in the west and will be staying in the east coast. Not like I could even get FIOS ever since Verizon stopped FIber expansion.

    I was glad my ISP started Truestream and I jumped on it first chance I got for no caps. So I felt your pain

    Just upgraded my internet speed (well, downgraded the upload speed).

    Down - 30mb/s. Up - 6.7mb/s (used to be 10-12 mb/s). About USD 45-55 per month, damn expensive.

    Wait...... what? your upload is far higher than your download? and you pay 45-55 per month? now that's insane..... why not swapping the up/down?

    ...Waiting for Strike105X to show us how great and cheap internet connection is done XD

    Opps...!!! Thanks for the question bro, lol. I mistakenly writing up as down and down as up, already corrected them :D

    Here the government is the only real ISP provider....they monopoly the market so they are charging quite expensively.

    It is pitiful when a goverment monopolies the ISP :(

    Few days ago, i told one of my Ukrain friends that i have upgraded my internet speed and it is 30mbit now! He told me "LOL, we have been using 100mbit since 3 years ago and we pay USD 6 per month".
