Not really. 24mbit ADSL2+ connections are pretty cheap nowadays here and that's a better speed then most people have posted here.

We are not getting ripped the hardest. Far from it.

I don't understand why my ping is so low on this tests. Pinging from command line for various sites gives me far better results.

Hey if you dont mind tell us what you pay a month, in USD.
In the end I probably pay the same or more when we look at the prices in terms of buying power.

I am on a fixed 2MB connection but as I moved recently they moved me onto the new price which was nice.

Depends, my speed when syncing what?

Presumably your sync speed is 2048kbps, i.e. the sync speed reported by your router (which would be an upper limit for your download speeds)...

Re: Post your Speed test results here.


Goes to show we have crappiest connections around. My connection should be 2Mbit/2Mbit but apparently the upload isn't even the same as the download, and all this crap for 33€.

I think I'll end up paying more for just a steady connection.

I mean come on, the ping is 600 within my own small country?

I'm living close to you. And the pings are the same. I think it's something to do with speedtest itself. Because I tried pinging(through command line) various site outside of the continent and the ping was faster.

Home connection:



Enough for me at the moment.
UPC's Fiber Power 60 (60/6Mbps) and 120 (120/10Mbps) are nice, but monthly fees of €60 and €80 are not.

I think that's just DNA failing.
I have a 8mbit/s connection with Sonera, and the ping is never over 60 running the test. Helsinki server.

Re: Post your Speed test results here.


flatrate 16Mbps down ~45 USD
but thats an old number. new contract with them is 31$ @20Mbps or 69$ @32Mbps

since im living in one apartment with 2 other guys it boils down to 15$ with the hassle of realy wanting to kill one of them because he aswell fails to grasp the concept of the lowupload AND is resistant to any argument if he doesnt like it, especialy if i'm making it.

so getting that sweet ping sometimes needs some begging on my part... -.-.-.-

cant speak for america, but here most universitys are connected via the DFN (german research network).

had a great time living in the student quarters. fibreoptic networkcard, and all done by the residents ^^ (the network, not the hardware, but it WAS owned completly by a nonprofit organisation composed by residents.)
actualy it was a non university student home, and we had to put the cable into the ground ourselfs ^^ roughly 1 to 1.5 miles of the stuff ^^
