I think how much we all pay is just as important as how fast.

20Mbps / 2.0Mbps ATT U-verse
45 bucks a month
San Jose

PS. If/when Goog Fiber comes into town I'm dumping ATT!

I agree 100%! How would someone write that poll?

I pay $85/month for "9211/ 889 Kbps" which measures out to about 8000 down/760up Kbps. It includes my phone service and long distance service as well.

This is pretty costly but I don't have much choice if I want reasonable service at all.

On the plus side:
  • Speed is consistent, no evening slowdown.
  • I get 24/7 support 365 days a year.
  • I've gotten discounts for outages since the service is 99% uptime guaranteed.
  • When I call support I get a real tech and not a call center person were English is a 3rd or 4th language and the folks are just reading a script (it's not their fault, they're management put them in a very bad spot).
Cheers,

That sounds like an Ethernet port throughput.

If you run speedtest (http://www.speedtest.net/), what speeds does Speedtest give you?

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (110Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

Maybe a university LAN connection? Or gigabit fiber?

Moved to an area where Comcrap is the only choice. I am paying for 105/15 speeds.
The test was done on my laptop. Wireless on the 5gHz band of an Asus AC68P router.

Comcast 128/24 @ 105 plan thanks to the fact that they are lobbying the federal government to allow them to buyout a supposed "non-competitor".....
I get this speed throughout the day and it I pretty rock solid. I came from AT&T DSL which I had been on for years after getting booted off Comcast for using "too much bandwidth" and after AT&T instituted 150 GB/month data caps and started charging overages in 50 GB allocations, which caused my DSL bill to skyrocket and after a few months of that I decided to kick them to the curb, say f$c$ you to AT&T-good riddance, buy a DOCSIS 3 modem and have Comcast enter its mac into their database and have been a super happy camper ever since back in October when I made the switch.
