Very interesting to see how this thread has evolved since 2014 as internet is getting increasingly faster and cheaper. Although impressive for home use, my results have the side effect of being Too Fast to be routed by even SoHo level router/firewall. To properly route this level of traffic you need custom/enterprise gear otherwise you may get only 120Mbps or less max per port. Very fast, but not what is being paid for.

Monthly cost is 78 bucks for this service.
940Mbps down
784Mbps Up

Speed fluctuates by +/- 100Mbps on up or download.

Mine's still 14.4/1 and won't be changing anytime soon. Not even broadband standards.

Maybe this was already posted, I was just looking at the poll. Technically, anyone below 25mbps doesn't have broadband. So everyone who voted in the 1-20 speeds would need to just vote in the bottom "I don't have broadband..." Since broadband is now 25mbps.

who is making this definition? 'broadband' used to describe any connection that was 'always on', the alternative being the dial-up you had to connect every time you used it. when broadband was introduced, i'm pretty sure 25mbps was a pipe dream years away...

guess i'm saying i don't agree with your definition of broadband, so i'm curious where it's coming from? but if this is what the industry is doing, i hate it! could you imagine if we weren't allowed to call our 1080p tv's 'HD' anymore, because now 4k is 'HD'.

The Federal Communications Commission.


From The Verge article, The FCC has changed the definition of broadband

Quote:
As part of its 2015 Broadband Progress Report, the Federal Communications Commission has voted to change the definition of broadband by raising the minimum download speeds needed from 4Mbps to 25Mbps, and the minimum upload speed from 1Mbps to 3Mbps

My very humble setup:
Spoiler!

i still don't like it. create a new term if you want to raise standards, like, every other standard related to technology...

i wonder how much money was wasted on this decision, that could have been used to improved infrastructure instead

still, since this is a globally accessible website, and the FCC does not dictate global definitions, i'd say leave the poll as is, at least for now.

Home is supposed to be 150+Mbps but usually speeds are much lower. Randomly doing a SpeedTest right now, I get 15Mbps. During non-peak hours I can get over 100Mbps and Ethernet of course will be better than WiFi.

~54Mbps down, ~12Mbps up @ 9:20p, AT&T copper (uses DSL port (!) on ATT supplied modem/router/wifi/Uverse box)

in Dearborn area, $40/mo 1 year deal, internet only. 1TB/mon cap. Running the numbers, I don't see this as a practical limit

Trying DirectTV Now $35/~60 channel/2 streams package with a Roku Premier+
Watched Orville last night on this setup- better picture than OTA HD or WoW cable HD FOX!
Not one glitch or hiccup during this high congestion timeslot, as I have experienced with Amazon Prime movie rental streaming on Friday/Sat nights.
I think I am one of ATT's first customers in the neighborhood, so I get all 50+Mbps to myself MAy also have to do with its DSL-like design at the moment (vs the shared bandwidth with cable internet)

I flipped back and forth among them to compare, watching Orville on a DaLite 8ft wide high power (2+ gain) from an Epson 8350 in Cinema mode.

Installer claimed ATT is running fiber down Michigan Ave, so even faster speeds should be offered sometime.

Dropping Wide Open West after ~15 years with them- WoW was a godsend after a short time with Comcast! Yeah, they've been Evil THAT long!

Always have a soft spot for WoW, and wanted to keep them, but DirectTV Now allows simple access from anywhere, vacation home, phone/tablet/laptop, etc, with all HD channels vs the SD digital (though unencrypted QAM) from WoW. Plus WoW has been playing the rate changing game aggressively the past couple years and getting worse.

The live streaming "cable" packages from DirecTV, Youtube, Sling, Hulu and probably many more moving forwards, means the dam may finally break on local cable monopolies, and real competition with channel packages may happen, with easy switching from one provider to another.

All you need is the fastest internet at the lowest cost.

Been using smartphone only for a couple years for voice (Republic Wireless with automatic wifi voice over IP at home, unlimited voice/sms), i.e. no issues with cell dead spots/coverage

100 down, 50 up.
A Netflix test yesterday, from Xbox One S, indicated 97Mbps.
