[QUOTE=jediaction;45430]That's pretty bad interenet....[/QUOTE]

It's New Zealand.

Mr. Kidnapper has a 1.5 Mbps intarwebs, which translates to about 200KB/s download speed, and a ~.6 Mbps upload rate, which translate to about 20KB/s upload speed (Hardly anyone needs to upload.) Yeaaaaah. Beat that. It's also why I don't like to upload anything. Had this intarwebs for about 12 years now.

This is why I do not like the move away from physical disks and towards downloading and streaming. Not only do I like to physically posses my game/movie etc, but also some people do not have the speeds required to stream things nicely, some people don't even have an internet connection.

Is 25 mbps download and 1 mbps upload good?

arty-fishL 01-10-2012 06:14 PM

Yes, it is very good, about as good as Jedi's.

I presume you both have fibre optic or something, there seems to be a vast difference between fibre optic and standard broadband, at least where I live there is.

Standard broadband = ~2-5 mb/s
Fibre optic = ~20 mb/s

Here in the UK, Virgin Media offer 100 mb/s broadband in limited areas, 50 mb/s in a wider range and 20 mb/s almost everywhere else.

I'm not exactly sure what I have, but as far as I know. My internet was upgraded to something better about 1 year ago.

Maybe I'll post the pic tomorrow.

Now I need sleep.

I tested again.

My connection is still slow, but ...
I got an A on yay :D! Slow, yet stable internet (not sure that's a good thing.

Interestingly though, the fastest speeds available around my area are about 3Mb/s with ~0.9Mb/s being the slowest. Fibre optic is unavailable where I live. So a terrible connection would be expected.

Still, I've got a wonderful computer, I do a lot of offline stuff and I don't usually stream things, so the speeds I am faced with are super fast.

Hehe, your going to sleep, it was 9:42 AM local time (GMT) when you posted that.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:52 PM.
