Im planning to upgrade my internet conection :D

I have a friend with DSL 2megabit dowstream/512upstream .with decent places he can download a full iso (700megs) in ~45minutes. i thought that was amazingly fast until began to notice on Broadband forums people claiming 5 and a lot more megabits!!! using a DSL or cable line. DSL-2 aparently go up to 30mbits .. even heard of people hacking their modems to increase significantly their speeds ,any lucky ones here? :)

CAble or DSL? Which one is your internet provider?

Btw.. here is an interesting thread of ISPs//

Aparently Japan ISp's offers 100mbit for around $70USD.
Its insane how fast broadband has progressed ,for such low price. unfortunately like someone told ,we cant be faster than the places we visit.

Arghh I hate you all.

The problem in my area is there is only two carriers here, and they are both extremely expensive in comparison to the lower 48. The DSL carrier has up to 1MB speed(well technically, 984kbps) and thats at least $80 a month. The 5MB I'm paying for W/O download caps is $150 a month. The actual internet is only 39.99 but to do away with the download caps, I need to get their stupid package, which includes phone/LD/cableTV/etc.

Fastest speed in my area is 8MBd/324kbpsup cable. Not too bad, but utterly pathetic in comparison to the lower 48s packages and prices.

ADSL2+ , works a bit different over here to regular DSL.

Reason its so cheap in Japan is because their market is really slow to adopt broadband. It's been stated in many console interviews that online gaming just now is starting to take off there, even on PCs.

I don't think the upload is enough for a BF2 Server... but if you can get one going, I'll play on it. :)

yep i have charter cable which is listed on that thread. its got a nice 3mbps down but 256k up :(

thinking of upgrading soon, maybe even save some money. its around $40 a month for the internet, which is a good deal if you get it along with cable tv, but we have direct tv so we're not saving anything. anyone know of some good places that serve to southern california that get better speeds than mine, about or under $43 p/month ?

I've got DSL and cable here.
DSL is 2Mb/768Kb
Cable is 5Mb/2Mb

But for actual bandwidth, cable is all over the place at different times of the day. It also bounces frequently, unlike the DSL which is rock solid.

I'd be up for it , I can usually get pretty good pings to the US on servers 2MBit or higher.

New patch soon with CooP mode should be great fun.

Not quite close enough to the exchange to obtain 24Mbit :)

I'm currently on Cable with Cox @ 4MB/768KB, but for a few dollars more, they offer 9MB/1MB.

Why we are on the subject of speeds and such, anyone know why my SmartFTP is capped at 64KB upload?

I got insight 15 Megabits, and 1.5 megabit up.

www.insight-com.com or www.insightbb.com.

I usually download off the news groups at around 1.9 Megabytes a second. I can catch close to 1.2 megabytes off Fileplanet.
