    How fast were you going.....?

    We recently got FLETS or FTTH (Fiber To The Home) and man I'm seeing speeds that are just simply stupid........




    With the new iMac and this kind of speed, things just "POP" into being on the screen, it truly is amazing

    Anyone else out there with FTTH seeing speeds like these?

    Cheers!

    We recently changed internet providers, went with the phone company and now I can be on the internet and talk on the phone at the same time as well as watch u tube! Before, my computer would time out before it could load the video. Now it is like you say, blip and it is on. Amazing! What a world we live in.
    I don't know how to tell how fast it is going, but do know it isn't the fastest we could get.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Nothing nearly that fast here, most I've ever got is about 10 Mbs, which is average for most US cable speeds. I've read reports about speeds up to 60 Mbs average in Japan and other parts of Asia and the average in those reports for the US was about 196 KB. I figured the US numbers were skewed since there are still so many dial-up lines here.

    In the US Mbs = $$$ so, we'll be behind as long as they can make a buck.

    Works well enough for us, but not as snappy as your service.

    On laptop, 80 ft from router, in the shop, block walls, metal roof. Not too bad for being in the sticks.

    Upload a bit slow. It is ordered. $ 50 per month. Quite a lot.
