The internet - IT LIVES!

Virgin broadband man came round yesterday and fixed the "upstream."  All he seemed to do was sit on speedtest.net for half an hour then decide we need a new router, I could of told him that and just saved him the time.

Anywhere, here's my stats now. Finally I can buffer YouTube videos in a reasonable amount of time!



PS, 20mbps is nothing compared to the 100mbps you can receive in China.  At those speeds you could download an entire movie in 90 seconds. Mind blowing stuff.

  4. Aren't Megabits and and Megabytes different?
    (Which .-. I heard that the upload and download is in megabits, but the actual download you're getting is less than that.)

    Oh, I know comcast Business class offers a 100Mbps connection, it's only like 149$ though.
    As if anyone could buy that just to browse things on the web, probably the reason it's called Business Class.
    Nice connection.

  13. That's a crazy difference!
    I bet you're glad now that you have that sorted. I think that what ISPs are doing in this country is discusting.

  14. You can download a movie, if the server you're contacting can also supply that speed or if there's enough seeders if it's a torrent.
