Surprisingly, internet is the only service Telus offers that isn't horrendously overpriced for what you get (looking at you, mobile and TV )

It still has its warts, tho, ex. how it's "up to 120 Mb/s down" but never reaches much more than 90 in practice, some TV channels glitch out for a few seconds every few minutes, things like that.

Eduroam fares really well here in campus, even at a pretty peak time (9pm). But it could be 4MiB for all I care instead, if it would be stable instead...

Taking the old 10/100 switch out of the equation by just running a cable from the box to the PC directly, my 70-90 Mbps down from minutes before turn into...

Mine is like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: sometimes you get Dr. Jekyll and have a good connection. Other times you'll get Mr. Hyde and have it slow to a crawl to AOL-like speeds.

Bleeeeegh. Telus still hasn't rolled out PureFibre in Victoria or Saanich. Sad face.

(imagine I posted a speedtest result of about 175 down/15 up here)

pretttttttty fucking terrible

it's not always this bad, but i've never gotten a result higher than 30Mbit (we were paying for 100, now we're paying for 75 cuz they raised prices, so yay). you can literally see where i moved to denver and switched from mediacom to comcast (hint: it's the big gigantic dropoff after the really tall 94Mbit peak).

full disclosure: i'm on wireless internet now, but even for wireless internet the results i'm getting are fucking terrible. even when i was on mediacom, they weren't being impacted *this* much. i've tried both my laptop and different connections around the area, and they're all resolutely godawful.

fuck comcast. there's no competition here and they own all the cable infrastructure, so they have no incentive to do better. honestly, we should just call them, but nobody here's really wanted to deal with their customer service and half of us have phone anxiety, so

edit: i just found out the post above me is chewing comcast out for their slow internet. i must be cooler

I just upgraded our internet today. Holy crap it's fast, like, I'm not used to internet even supporting speeds this fast. I know speedtest.net isn't always accurate, but considering Steam reached 4.1MB/s of download, I don't they're lying here.

My ISP, although it has its own share of problems (mainly with customer service), it manages to provide the same speed as we paid for consistenly and rarely has any downtime. Plus, we have unlimited bandwith too. We used to pay R$40/mo ($11) for 2Mbps. This one is quite a bit more costly, at R$95/mo ($25). Currently we'll be able to handle it no problem, but, we might need to downgrade in the future if things start going south financially (again).

*at today's exchange rate. our currency tends to be worth about $0.3 on average

There's also this anomaly of a test I did a few days ago that somehow got 0ms of ping, which I'm pretty sure is impossible.

Wow, reading trough this thread makes me feel bad about my internet connection.

Got a 300/30MBit/s connection and it actually delivers (Over cable, Pings are mostly single digits ).

Mine can be terrible when it disconnects me for no apparent reason, especially when it's humid outside after a thunderstorm. Spectrum internet must be weak to humidity or something.
