Our town is so small, We have 5 wireless routers in the whole town! I helped them all set them up! We do have a lot of normal fixed cable ADSL routers though!

 

SticMAN

 

Probably getting interference on the channel your wifi is using. Channel 6 is so crowded in my neighborhood (because it's the default on most routers) that I get awful speed using that channel. I switched to channel 9 and everything is fine.

Again, there is no way that is a residential connection.

 

And if it is not, it should not count. Last time I checked most work places will not let anyone take advantage of that kind of bandwidth (ie torrenting, downloading, streaming video)...

You do not get 31mbps down on a 16mbps down connection... :(

....broadband you say?

 

I'm still on dial up! My dad has been holding out for the longest time, we finally get broadband today (the line is activated and so on) and BT didn't deliver the router!!

 

We call them, and it turns out theres been a logistics error, we wont get one till Wednesday....

 

this is torturous....

Numberzz, we have the same thing basically. I'm getting 20/20 Fios soon so this should go up. It's only 64 a month, too.

 

Right now I have just regular comcast, it's 45 a month IIRC.

Looked that up and it says that its UKs fastest broadband, and I'm guessing its true. Wow, 56Mbps connection.

20mbit both ways should be sweet when I get it.

 

On the west coast, what about SureWest, they offer 50mbit lines.

It's actually 25mbit both ways but they let you have any free bandwith as well...i often reach 100mbit both ways ;)
How many MBPS is that?
25/25 but i often reach 100/100 because they give you any free bandwith on the network.

Should be 20mbs but am downloading.

 

My ISP is upgrading to 50mbs soon and is trialing 100 so cant wait.

 

 

VM's 100Mbit trial stopped AGES ago as it was a huge failure.

 

The 50Mbit comes trial comes to an end soon and starts rolling out around december.

 

How can you be happy with all day STM though? (10am-3pm and 4pm-9pm)

 

50Mbit has STM as well
