no need to say exact location (unless you post speedtest.net results).

how do you get internet? cable? dsl? 3G? wimax? fiber to home? office lan? campus wifi?

i'd like a thread with pix of your gear and speed results  Smiley

i'm currently on an open wifi (prtc dsl), if no wifi is available i connect by ATT 3G tethered via bluetooth from a samsung flight2.  the cap for non-smartphones is 5GB, smartphones get only 2GB then $10 extra GB.



at home i used borrow the neighbors' wifi using this:

You could run a good number of servers with that upload.

I assumed so, actually. Meh, I like stating the obvious sometimes.

Home cable connection, marketed as 100/7.

There's got to be some advantage to leaving the countryside and moving to the big city (well, big by Swiss standards).  Smiley

you guys test too close, choose a server farther away to see if the connection is good enough when connecting to overseas servers.

what good is having 100mbit fiber to home when you only get few tens of megabits when connecting to servers a few thousand miles away...

I see numbers here far above what I'd ever use. If you don't run servers, what do you use your tremendous bandwidth for? You only need 2-3 Mb/s for video streaming, and there isn't much 1080p streaming video that would require lots more right now. Even blu-ray only requires 25-35 Mb/s!

I try to avoid video streaming because I find the user experience really clunky. I prefer to use video on demand if possible.
 
The other day I needed to catch a train and 10 minutes before leaving the apartment I realised I wanted to download a few TV shows to watch on the journey. My 100/7 connection allowed me to do this in 2 minutes via the Miro player instead of the 10-20 minutes it would have taken on a "standard" 10/2 connection. 

I am a convenience junkie, and I'm prepared to pay an extra $30 a month for those small luxuries.
