post #3801 of 4758

It sucks.I pay for a 24 megabit connection and this is the best i can get.The quality of the lines is just terrible.
Oh i forgot to mention that this is the "best" and most expensive connection you can get here.
At least i don't have a bandwidth limit and it is relatively cheap.(i have a contact that gives you unlimited phone calls+unlimited internet for 36euros per month)

used to be lucky if i got .5 down and .1 up with 100 ping when i paid for 12/1 DSL.

comcast decided to run lines in our area, even though we are pretty rural, so happy to get this 24/7 and i am debating on moving to the 50down plan.

Virgin don't have the infrastructure to server gigabit lines home users - let alone the amount of traffic shaping rules they have that MrTaL3NtZz would have to bypass to get those speeds.

I might have believed him if he said he plugged a laptop into a core switch, but a gigabit line on his home broadband? laugher.gif

Actually VM is testing some gigabit lines for home broadband right now. A few years ago they did the same thing with the 100 Mbps. Also the guy who installed the broadband in my house said VM has is preparing my area for gigabit lines and it should be available to the public (at least for 300 Mbps) within the next year.

Even assuming he's part of the trials (which I doubt any town in the Midlands are part of. Cambridge is usually amongst the first which is why it's no surprise that you'd have the option of 300Mb next year), there's still the packet shaping issue and his ping is made up too (4ms across 50miles*2 of routing is a little optimistic)

Occam's Razor would suggest that his speedtest is doctored.

i was told over a year ago that 300mb was being tested
I should game.

I know VM are testing faster lines. That part was never in dispute. I was only arguing about how the ~950Mb/s speed test result was faked. The fact that some streets within a very small subsets of UK towns are trialling 300Mb lines doesn't prove that the former poster hadn't faked his result.
