How Quick Is Your Internet ?

23 replies
I read a lot about mobile being slow, but I would like to hear what the average
Internet / Mobile speeds are in your area.

I am experiencing problems with my Internet connection, it has slowed from
a dismal 1.5 MBPS to 0.13 MBPS... virtually unusable ( this is landline )

I read about Mobile having download speeds of 4.5 MBPS , even up to 7.5MBPS,

    My Phone is on 3G (iPhone 4S, we don't have 4G up here yet, I'm 2400km north of Vancouver ), and it gets around 350 - 500kbps download speeds in real downloads, not sure about the connection speed.

    My Actual Computer Internet downloads (from torrents, or places like Apple or Adobe, where they have very good servers), at around 2 - 3 Mbps, again, not sure what the connection speed is. We pay about $160 / Month for Internet up here though (no phone or TV included).

      $160 PCM for Internet, wow, that is about £100. We can pay as little as £10 PCM, maybe even less than that, for slower download speeds.

    Wow - thanks for ruining my day

    I just checked here with the speedtest.net app and on my 3G connection, got 0.07 Mbps down and 0.02 up first try, second got me .07 down and .92 up and third try was .10 down and .03 up

    I don't often have need to check so I don't know if that's normal, or if wireless just sucks today in anticipation of the monster storm about to hit the east coast.

    In any event, you've got me beat!

      Well,, you have cheered me up . I have seen some of the fibre optics broadband suppliers advertising speeds of 80 Mbps up to 160 Mbps

    Test done with the speedtest.net app.

    For internet, I'm fortunate to reside in an area where Verizon FIOS (United States) is available and usually get speeds very close to the advertised 75Mbps (I think they have up to 150Mbps) on speedtest.net.

    For everyday stuff it's overkill, but it makes a crazy difference for large downloads.

    I have had a 4G for about a year now - just ran speedtest.net app and maxed it out am getting 22.23Mps down and 6.56Mps - thats incredible when you think about it- that's actually quicker than my desktop cable connection! (18.93Mps up/1.92Mps down) - i use mine as hotspot all the time for my ipad and laptop.

    Really looking forward to the next 18 months when these type of speeds become the norm - it will have without a doubt a positive impact on mobile web development.

      Wow, My land connection with 0.13 Mbps is looking really pathetic. Recommend if you live in Europe, avoid orange broadband like the plague.

        How can they call 0.13mps broadband?

        That's crazy - what speeds are you supposed to get?

        You in a bad signal area?

    I have Sprint 4G in NYC. I get about 3-4 Mbps down and 1.5 Mbps up. Verizon 4G is a lot faster here though. At home I get about 20 Mbps down and 0.6 Mbps up.
