P.S.- What isp has a 120 Mb/s download option? I want! biggrin.gif

Incorrect. Unless the Steam servers are being slammed, you can frequently see your download being saturated. I've seen speeds of more than 30MB/s from Steam on more than one occasion.

The amount of people logged on to the internet tongue.gif. ISPs say "peak time" when their servers are loaded, peak times are usually from 07:00 - 09:00 then again from 12:00 - 13:00 then from 17:00 - 19:00. Well that's when my peak times are anyway. If you look, 07:00 - 09:00 is breakfast time for more people before work, so they go on the internet before they leave, 12:00-13:00 is lunch time, so everyone at work is on their break doing whatever it is they do on the internet and 17:00-19:00 is when everyone gets home and they go on the internet doing whatever it is they do tongue.gif

It would also be slower than usual during public holidays when no one is at work. The fastest times (for me) are usually between 09:30-11:30, 2:30 - 16:30 and 19:30 - 06:30.

My 48mb lines max out at 4-5 provided no one else in the house is using the net, when I was on work placement and had 100mb it maxed at 10mb.

this, either get n and for the wired devices make sure your using gigabit ethernet to make the most of it.

But would I be blowing money into the air with the 120 Mbit, or not.
more than likely not, but it depends on what your using it for, I went for the faster option so more machines had more bandwidth and my download speeds could be insane... im impatient!

What decides if the internet is faster or slower than usual?

The number of people sharing your node.

Node meaning:
Neighborhood Optical Drop ( something beginning with E. lol. )

Sadly, everything coming from this node is a single shared medium. ( split up to 4 ways )

So more users = less availability to respond on the medium.

1200 people on a 10 Gigabit node means, 8mb/s per user minus headroom. Be happy we can achieve the speeds we do.

HFC is "CSMA-CA", Meaning the head-end has to ask for your data before you can send it. This creates alot of overhead traffic.
