Where are you from if I may ask?
Based on the conversation he had with Nightmare i'm guessing Malaysia.
Ah, i thought Canada hehehehehe.
I voted when I had 2mb some years ago.
Now I have 10mb. Paying 50 bucks with a land line and some minutes.
Competition remains low in Canada and prices remain high. This is despite my province having some of the lowest internet prices in the country.
20mbps/10mbps with 350gb monthly limit offered for 50$. Another 5$ removes upload from the monthly limit and allows unlimited download from 2am to 2pm.
That's 55$ Canadian, also known as 40USD.
With that said, there are two good things I can say about my internet provider.
1) Latency is super low and the connection is incredibly stable. This is what I looked forward to the most since I play a lot of online games.
2) Many providers dick you over by saying their connection is "up to" 20mbps. This provider announces it the same, but I actually get 22mbps during peak hours. They're good.
upgraded my speed, not really with at&t on resold net without any of the at&t problems
Finally Upgraded. Comcast Blast! 200Mbps. I have Gigabit Pro in my area (2Gbps) for 1$149 (Contract, $299 month to month)but it's $1000 to install and $1100 to break a contract if you move. And it takes (drumroll) 2-3 Months to install.
So, yeah, ill pass for now.
Line Rate - Upstream (Kbps): 1066
Line Rate - Downstream (Kbps):6272
Still on copper telephone wires here.
Cool so you finally ended up with a good connection as well, i remember back when you where active it was hell, is it capped or uncapped now ? (i remember back when DS posted his saying that only capped ones where available).
I switched from Verizon to Spectrum (Formerly Time Warner) and decided to have some 'fun' and test a Steam Download.
I uninstalled some games I haven't played to free up some hard drive space and then downloaded the Devil May Cry reboot.
It downloaded in under 30 minutes at 7.x GB.
On Verizon, I could get maybe 3GB per HOUR.
I also committed the awful sin of playing the first mission in the game. How dare I play a game I purchased in a bundle...right?
