Paying comcrap for 75/10, getting consistent 90/12. Can't complain, but the co-op fiber no cap gigabit up/down for $100/mo (locked in for life with early signup) is coming this winter. Probably grab their TV service also, even though they don't currently carry nbatv. Can't wait!

100Mbps right now. Although, I got 1Gbps when I lived in Provo last summer. Oh, how the internet gods were smiling down upon me!

I'm on a public utility district fiber optics network. I'm using a LinkSys WRT54GL wireless router that maxes out at 50Mbps - about half what the network is capable of. I replaced a TP-Link WR841N with 300Mbps speeds simply because I place my wireless routers in an out of the way place and the TP-Link was becoming a daily affair of having to reboot it. With the TP-Link in place (and working right) I could get very close to 100Mbps speeds. Best mark I can remember hitting was a few years ago - 98Mbps download with 75Mbps upload. That's pretty quick. Since I don't download big bites of data the 50Mbps is plenty. And it doesn't require rebooting one or twice per day. TP-Link customer service said that was normal!?!? I asked them what abnormal would be to them. I got no answer.

I just measured my current speed - 42Mbps upload and 37Mbps download.

Verizonwireless came up with an unlimited plan that's only $30 more a month than my 2 gig plan. I've used it in the past with a wireless hotspot when my Centurylink or Comcast internet has gone down and I've been very impressed with the connection speed etc. Now that it's a reasonable priced solution I went ahead and tested it.

97Mbs down and 35Mbs up.
Yep, that's on my silly pocket computer with cellular capability. Keep in mind I don't get that good a service everywhere I go, I just happen to be lucky that where I live I get very good and consistent service.

My Comcast contract is up in about 17 months. When it is my plan is to get a fixed wireless setup for my house and integrate it into my in home wired network. Maybe by then 5G will be available.

Cheers,

I'm on Thames Valley Communications, which is a small, local cable overbuilder in Connecticut. I have the 155/20 package, which usually gets about 160/15.
