Everyone here does know the difference. Speedtest reports it in Mbits. 1 Byte = 8 Bits. 100 MBits/s ~ 12.5MB/s.

The ISPs reroute traffic as soon as as they realize you're using speedtest.net or something similar so even if you're in a clogged network, it'll show you what you want to see and not what you actually get.

Calling rogers, you end up talking to a bunch of pathetic fools that pretend it's not their problem and you're getting the "real" speed and all those websites are having problems or that your modem is overheating.

TLDR: Don't use speedtest.net.

If you use a download accelerator like Internet Download Manager and set it to something like 8-10 connections per file most sites will max out your download speed. It depends on what the sites server caps an individual connection at.

It could be that your service isn't what youre paying for but I know that with mine even big sites won't max out my connection unless I use an accelerator like IDM. Worth checking it out if you haven't tried it before!

Wow. That makes me sad. We have the best internet connection around, a fiber connection running 30/30 because of a programming error (it's supposed to be 15/15) and that's been working great for me. Average is 50+? Lucky urbaners.... At least my ping is like 20....

More than I pay for actually. I pay for 105/20.

Also Overwatch downloads at >15MB/s as well.

Really, after getting 100mbps, I stopped caring; little files may not hit 100mbps, but they don't have to. Everything downloads in under a minute (usually a few seconds) unless it's absolutely massive, and then it's like 10 minutes. Zone out and daydream, it'll be done before you are. I think even GTA V took like an hour and a half.

To be honest, yea. Rural areas get shafted by simple fact they are more expensive to support. And Urban areas by being hard to support the density. Suburban living 4lyfe. tongue.gif

Don't feel too bad though, I got a friend who is on 8/1 DSL that gets more like 4/.25.

I have a little over 60Mbit download, by my up is like 3Mbit. I don't get what it is with these ISPs that lock the upstream down. It absolutely sucks >frown.gif

Speedtest.net has always been accurate for me... That being said though, we're still in the stone ages when it comes to speeds and prices in Canada (at least compared to Europe), though our ISPs have made made improvements/started to rape us a little bit less up here as of late, thankfully. I'm still 100% convinced that Rogers throttles BT traffic, which annoys the living piss out of me because I don't want to start paying extra for a seedbox just so I can download my data via FTP... but meh, nothing we can really do to stop any of the monopolies in this socialist country.

I don't think Canada (or any other country) is slower or more expensive than Europe for the sake of being so. It has to do with how expensive it is to update infrastructure. Canada is a big country. I'm sure it takes time and resources to install fiber.

I used to pay €40 for 30/2 Internet (plus cable and landline) when FTTH wasn't available. Now, i pay €26 for 200/200 Internet (plus cable and landline). And this happened overnight, basically.

The vast majority of Canada's population is close to the US border and in metropolitan areas so it's not as bad as it would seem. In the US many places have fiber installed but it lays unused as the cable companies gouge the copper for as long as they can.
